John Boyle

of Queen Creek, AZ, died on Saturday, Dec. 26, 2020 but his larger-than-life persona, wicked sense of humor, generous heart and trademark stubbornness will not be forgotten.

John was born on December 6, 1976 in Phoenix, AZ.  He was the oldest son of Mike and Karen Boyle of St. Johns, AZ. He was a boy through and through. He was adventurous and daring and always getting himself into scrapes. He had 11 broken bones in 9 different accidents all before the age of 10 years old.

He was an avid sportsman, excelling at soccer and baseball. He thrived in the outdoors. He loved camping, boating, water skiing and anything with wheels, a passion he has passed down to his son.

He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served in two mission locations; Wisconsin Green Bay mission and Washington Tacoma mission.

He despised loud-mouth-know-it-alls, stupid reality tv shows and anything to do with the Kardashians. Known affectionately as “Bear” he could be a big Teddy bear or an absolute Grizzly.

John had two great loves in his life. First and foremost was his family. He was introduced to his wife, Kelly, in May 2004, by a mutual friend. It didn’t take long before the two became inseparable. They were married August 5, 2005 and sealed in the Mt. Timpanogas Temple a year to the day on August 5, 2006. They added daughter, Baylee in 2007, their daughter Ashlee in 2010 and John’s mini-me, Jackson in 2018.

He took extreme pride in his children and was the most amazing father. He was his kids fiercest advocate and protector and their biggest fan. Nothing excited him more than watching his kids excel in sports, art and school and he worked hard to make sure they had opportunities to develop their talents. John’s legacy to the world is in his amazing children. Each of them will make their mark and this world will be better for it.

John’s second love was his job. He joined SRP, Salt River Project, in 1998. John worked hard with the company and set his sights on achieving an electrical apprenticeship. Once John set his mind to something he could not be stopped. He earned the apprenticeship in 2005 and graduated in 2009. He had a strong work ethic, keen observational skills and an unparalleled ability to troubleshoot problems. These talents earned him many accolades throughout his 22-year career.

He always told you the truth, even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. He was generous to a fault, he had a heart of gold, and yet he sugar-coated absolutely nothing. To quote Winston Churchill: “He was a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.”

John is survived by his loving wife, Kelly, their children, Baylee (13), Ashlee (10) and Jackson (2). Parents Mike and Karen Boyle, sister, Jodie, brothers Jacob and Quentin (Felicia) Boyle and foster brother, Philip, along with numerous extended family members. He was preceded in death by grandparents, Florence Cole, Clyde Cole, Norman “Scotty” Boyle and Mildred “Billie” Boyle and infant brother, Jason Scott Boyle.
