OBITUARY

Michael John Boyle Jr.

September 20, 1974January 7, 2021

Michael John Boyle, Jr. (Mike) 46, of Charlotte, formerly of Pittsburgh, PA, was tragically taken from his family on January 7, 2021. Michael is survived by his parents, Michael Sr. and Michele (Mascellino); his two brothers, Todd (Brianca) and Jeffrey (Sarah); niece, Nete'yah; nephew, Lincoln; his child dog, Rocco; and tons of aunts, uncles, cousins across the country.

Michael shared his Dad's love for old cars and restoring them; was a fantastic cook and making his Grams pasta and meatballs. He shared his Mom's love for gardening, always planting flowers, herbs and shrubs, creating a lawn decoration for her. He loved his brothers so much, and tormented his brothers and sisters with group messaging back and forth with silly things, all hours of the day or night. Nete'yah and Lincoln were the light of his life. Uncle Mike-Mike as they called him. Always bringing them little gifts he knew they would love.

Michael served his country as a U.S. Marine, he managed restaurants, owned his own business, loved traveling, but mostly he loved his family. He was currently working with his two brothers at Three Rivers Consultants as a Logistics and Operations Manager.

Michael will be sorely missed and never forgotten.

Due to Covid restrictions, the family will celebrate Michael’s life with a private memorial service at 11 am on Saturday, January 16, 2021 at Harry & Bryant’s “Chapel in the Oaks."

Most people knew the type of person my brother was, but for those that didn't know all of him. Michael was rough around the edges, but he loved hard. He would have done anything for anyone in need, especially his family. And if you know my family, if you are a friend then you are FAMILY. He did not have any children, but he was the best uncle to mine. If he wasn’t planting flowers with my daughter Neteyah and sitting my son Lincoln up under the hood of whatever vehicle he was working on ,or taking walks around the block with them both, he’d always find some way to spoil them with little gifts he would pick up along his travels. He was old school, he believed that a good old fashioned phone call over a text was how he would say was “more human”. He would tell me " Can you just call me, DON'T text me that Sh##!
Let me just be real for second. Michael had his struggles in this world we live in as many of us do in some way or another. And as hard as I would be on him at times, I finally realized he was much, much harder on himself when he said to me one time “do you think I want to be this way”?
Back in October Covid hit our house. When everyone around us was freaking out and treating us like we had the plague. He was checking on us almost daily making sure we were ok. Making sure the kids were ok and maintained some normality.
That was Mike. He always put everyone before himself, trying to fix everyone else. He was my big brother and I always looked up to him no matter what. I know you loved us all Michael the only way you knew how with that huge heart of yours. I love you buddy! I’ll see you again in the next life. Save me a seat next to yours!

I first met Mike on spring break right after I graduated high school. I was standing in the street having a beer and I heard the revving sound of an engine from around the block soon came a silver Volkswagen flying around the corner and slammed on the brakes and skidded to a stop right in front of me and Todd. Out stepped Mike and the first thing he says is “I made it here in an hour and 10 minutes”. It’s safe to say that I liked Mike from the first moment I met him.

The photo is from my son Sammy’s christening he is chilling with pop. I hope that get a chance to hang again. He will be missed.

I honestly don't know where to begin, but I know where this needs to finish. Growing up the youngest of three, my older brothers were my heroes.

The bond we share is strong and means something.

Michael's namesakes embodied the man he was and the way he carried himself in life.

Michael John Boyle are 3 very strong names in my life. John was my Grandfather and he set the tone for the men in our family. Michael is my Father, and he made us aspire to even try to be half the man he is. And Boyle resonates with me in such a manner, that I will carry it with me until the day I die.

Sometimes people don't like the fact that we tell it like it is; and are truthful and honest or blunt and direct. Which was how Mike lived his life. He never sugar-coated anything or gave you anything but his honest opinions or thoughts. He wasn't going to change that aspect about him for anyone or anything. And to be honest, that's the Boyle way. "Get over it", as he would say.

But he also had a sweet and caring side to him, which he got from my Mother, Michele. He would do anything and everything for a person, to make sure they were taken care of first. That's just the way he was.

Which leads to us where we are. I'm not sure many of you know this. But Michael put his own life on the line, and there's a person living today because of him.

He put their life before his own. And that's all you need to know about Michael and the man he was, and is and will be by my side for the rest of my life.

And I'll leave you with a little Italian saying I used to say to Mike all the time.

Solo perché lo è, non significa che dovrebbe esserlo

Which means: Just because it is, doesn't mean it should be.

Love your little brother,

Jeff

Michael was one of a kind! He could find humor and make fun in any situation. I often tell stories about my fond memories of a trip to visit him in NYC. Michael loved his family fiercely, both his immediate family as well as distant relatives. No matter how much time had passed, we would pick up right where we left off. Michael was a special person and will be greatly missed.

Dear Family,
We were devastated to learn of the tragic passing of your beloved, handsome Mike. Though we were unable to make his acquaintance in this life, we know we will get to meet him in Heaven. We had looked forward to meeting Mike, as well as Todd and Brianca's (our granddaughter's) entire extended family in connection with a visit we had planned to NC this past summer, before Covid pre-empted our ability to make the trip. God bless you now as we join you in grieving his loss; and soothe yourselves with your happy memories of your time with him and your certainty that you will one day be reunited in the presence of the Almighty. Love, Nannie and Rich

Family, to all the Boyles', we were so sorry to hear of Mike's passing. Although we hadn't met in person, we did meet on FaceTime, as I am his sister-in-law's Mother, as you know. He was always so nice when we did speak & to watch him interact with our grandbabies his niece & nephew was so sweet. I know they are heartbroken over the loss, but not sure they totally grasp it now, but very sad for you all. Out prayers🙏🏽 continue to go up for you in that the Angels are camped around you all during this very difficult time. God Bless you all with strength & the wonderful memories of Mike Jr. Lisa & Darryl Parker.

Mike, was one of a kind. Tough outer shell with a big heart. A stand up guy that could thrive in any condition. Lots of good memories but the one that best describes who he was to me was when he said "I'm moving to New York" and just like that I gave him a ride we hung out a day and I left him at times square with a hanshake and a backpack. He managed and lived there for years in the toughest city there is. Miss you Bro!
