Norman Scott Boyle, also known and loved as "Scotty," died at his Cottonwood home Dec. 14, 2007, at the age of 81.
He was born in Lehi, Ariz., on Aug. 12, 1926, to Orson and Carrie (Shill) Boyle. Norman attended Mesa High School, graduating in 1944.
For a short time following high school, he attended Arizona Southern University before serving his country in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
Scotty married Mildred V. "Billie" McCarty in Mesa in 1952. She died in 1991. He worked throughout most of the western United States as a union brick-mason. Scotty enjoyed his time on the west coast, and many times would find himself on its ocean beaches.
His favorite thing to do was spending time with his family, which he dearly loved. Scotty was also an avid reader and quite a history buff, especially on the Mormon Battalion.
Scotty leaves behind two sons, Michael (Karen) of St. Johns, and Gail of Camp Verde; two daughters, Carol and Donna, both of Mesa; his sister, Ruth Lucchesi of Payson; nine grandchildren; as well as three great-grandchildren.
Funeral Services will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Mesa - Lehi Ward on Thursday, Dec. 20, at 10 a.m. with a half-hour prior viewing. Interment will follow at the City of Mesa Cemetery.
