BOYLE

Peter John Boyle III, age 89, of Mangum, passed away early Monday morning, August 17, 2009, at Mangum Community Hospital.

Mr. Boyle was born in Mangum on March 5, 1920, to Peter John Boyle II and Virginia Hamilton Boyle. After graduating from Mangum High School in 1939, Peter went to Southwestern College on a football scholarship. Finding they had no dormitory space, he moved to the University of Oklahoma. With war nearing, he enlisted in the U. S. Air Corps and continued his education at Kemper Military Academy in Booneville, Missouri. From August of 1942 until October of 1945, Peter proudly served his country in the U.S. Air Corps. On August 4, 1945, he married the love of his life, Mary Jane Kraft, in Inglewood, California and they spent the next sixty-four wonderful years together, before his death. In 1963, Peter and his family moved from Arizona, where they were engaged in farming, to Mangum where he purchased the John Deere dealership. After his retirement in 1993, he spent time with his friends, Walt Griffis and R.O. Heatly, attended Air Force reunions and enjoyed his family and friends.

Preceded in death by his parents, he is survived by his wife, Jane, of the home; two daughters, Claudia Boyle of Mangum and Cynthia Petzold and husband Joe of Granite; four grandchildren, Emily Boyle of Mangum, John Boyle of Mangum, Katie Brandes and husband James of Stillwater and Jake Petzold of Granite; one great granddaughter, Cayden Brandes of Stillwater along with many nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
