Obituary for Michael J. Boylan

Michael J. Boylan, age 89 of25 North Beech Street Mt. Carmel and formerly of Locust Gap passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family Sunday April 23rd, 2017 at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.

Michael was born on June 3rd, 1927 in Locust Gap to the late Thomas J. Boylan and Mary (Coyle) Boylan.

Michael was employed as a Psychiatric Aide at the Danville State Hospital until his retirement.

He was married on January 15, 1955 in the former St. Joseph’s Church in Locust Gap to Dorothy Helen (Sebastian) Boylan who survives.

Michael attended Mt. Carmel Township Schools and in 2014 became an honorary graduate of Mt. Carmel Area High School.

He was a member of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, formerly St. Joseph’s Church in Locust Gap, the Mt. Carmel Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2110, a life member of the Locust Gap Fire Company and was also a member of the Natalie Fire Company.

Michael served as an Technical Sergeant with the U.S. Army’s 634th Armored Infantry Battalion during the Korean War. He received the Korean service medal with 4-bronze service stars, the purple heart and the combat infantry badge.

Mickey was a proud Irishman who put God and family above all else. His strength was beyond measure. “Sarge” had a great sense of humor.

He was preceded in death by a sister Sarah Boylan and a brother James Boylan.
