Mr. Boylan will be missed. He was a long time friend and Army pal of my Dad. John Duffy Sr. counted him as one of his dearest friends. Our prayers are with the entire Boylan family as we share in this loss but celebrate the life a good man.

We'll miss Vince. He was a steadfast regular at our woodcarving sessions at Goodwin House, and always kept things interesting.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any man's death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
