Mike was a legend, a man always on the side of his values and what he thought was the best for his community. He was someone who I always admired and whose characteristics I wanted to emulate in my own public service. His memory and his commitment to public service will live on in all of us who were truly lucky to know him.
Mike was such a terrific asset to the Omaha community for so many years. I was so fortunate that Mike selected me to be his Finance Director for the City of Omaha. Mike was a great Mayor to work for – he always had what was best for the overall City in his decisions. He was able to attract a good group of directors and his sense of humor always softened any tension that may have occurred.
I am so sorry for your loss and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I have many great memories of my interactions with Mike and I will miss my friend! He led quite a life!
Maureen, Prayers for you and your family, sorry for your loss.
I will miss you but you and Anne are are organizing the Angels!
Praying for the family during this difficult time. I always admired the work and dedication to service displaced by Mr. Boyle and his late wife. May God continue to comfort you during the weeks and months ahead.
Mike was such a force. He was a man with compassion, humor, and intelligence and he dedicated his life to his family and making a better community for everyone. He was a great Mayor and his genuine ability to listen, empathize and value community members allowed him to creatively approach decisions that benefited all. He just loved people and wanted to help them overcome obstacles and injustices. He and Anne were so incredible in their standing up for their values even when it wasn’t popular. His marvelous sense of humor and vitality was infectious. It was an honor to have worked for him and to be his friend. He will be dearly missed by his family, his amazingly large circle of friends and the community where he served. Our deepest sympathies to his marvelous family. Love, Barbara and Dwight
Eternal rest to Mike, now in the company of Ann, and peace to their family. Mike was always open, friendly and never a stranger no mater when or where.
I first met Mike and Anne over 50 years ago at a Young Democrats Convention. Since that time I was able to become a family friend and public service ally. Over the last 2 years I had the great pleasure to talk with Mike frequently as recently as 2 weeks ago. . He talked of family , politics and a sharp sense of the future. Mike along with Anne opened so many doors of opportunity to so many people. They leave a solid family and an amazing circle of friends . I will miss Mike but am so glad that that I was a part of his life. My condolences to Maureen , Mike, Jim , Pat, and Maggie
Working in Mike’s office changed the way I view life. He was always thinking of others. Devoting yourself to taking care of other is a huge job and he did it with a smile on his face and joy that he could do things for others.
Mike was a great guy. He always had a way of making you feel appreciated. He will be missed. He truly made a difference to the lives he touched.
To the Boyle family, we are so sorry to hear about Mike’s death. He and Anne were not only a power couple but some of the nicest people in this city. He truly made a difference for so many people. May God grant all of you comforted. May you be consoled by the happy memories of your father and mother.
