Mark was born July 19, 1953, the son of Patrick and Theresa (Dolan) Boyle in Mason City. He attended grade school in Dougherty and was a 1971 graduate of Newman Catholic High School. He attended NIACC and the University of Northern Iowa. He worked at Sukup Manufacturing, David Manufacturing and began farming full-time in 1979 in the Dougherty area. Mark also worked for sixteen years at Kraft Foods and part-time for fifteen years at Anderson Restoration in Kanawha. On July 9, 1983, Mark married Rosann Cahalan at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rockwell. Two children were born to this marriage, Melinda “Mindy” in 1985 and David in 1988. He was a former member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Dougherty, and a present member of Epiphany Parish and its Men’s Prayer Group. Those acquainted with Mark knew that he was artistic, creative, and always curious and questioning how things worked. He was handy and generous with his time, willing to fix anything, from household appliances to restoring vehicles. Never wanting to sit idle, he could often be found working on a project for family members. Those who knew Mark best appreciated his wit and dry sense of humor. Mark was genuine and a realist, always able to provide practical insight about life.
