Patrick A. "Pat" Boylen, 70, of Quincy, formerly of Camp Point, died at 7:45 p.m. Sunday, June 19, 2022, at Bickford Cottage in Quincy.
Born September 13, 1951, in Quincy, Pat was the son of Cletus and Agnes Jones Boylen. He married Vicki (Bunte) Wiskirchen on December 13, 1997, in Liberty. She survives.
Pat worked at Adams Electric Cooperative for 43 years, retiring in 2018. Pat served as a volunteer fireman in Camp Point for over 30 years. In 2005 he was voted Camp Point Citizen of the Year. He helped install lights at practically every ball field in this area, removed hornets nests from Bailey Park, and over the years was always there to help the Camp Point Lions Club hang Christmas Decorations.
Pat and Vicki loved to travel. They were fortunate enough to have gone to Mexico a few times, the Bahamas, Hawaii, San Diego, and Las Vegas just to mention a few.
Patrick loved woodworking and gardening. His favorite part of gardening was giving away what he had grown, especially his tomatoes. He loved playing slow pitch softball and if you asked him he would tell you what a great pitcher he was. Most of all he loved his family. He was a wonderful husband, brother, father, step-father, uncle, and grandpa. He will always be remembered for his laid-back attitude, his pranks that only he thought were funny, his sense of humor, and his love of the Chicago Cubs, which is why he needed that sense of humor!
Survivors in addition to his wife are his son, Travis Boylen (Kristen), Auburn, IL.; his stepsons, Troy Wiskirchen (Lindsay), Camp Point, and Tyler Wiskirchen (Lenae), Camp Point; nine grandchildren, Brady, Zeiger, and Watson Boylen and Zakila, Daxton, Breyhar, Bentlie, Briggs, and Vadah Wiskirchen; his brother, Mike Boylen (Carol), Mt. Sterling; numerous nieces and nephews; and his mother in law, Rosemary Bunte, Quincy.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Pat will be cremated. A memorial service will be conducted Friday at 10:00 a.m. at the Camp Point United Methodist Church by Rev. Jim Crozier. Burial will follow at Evergreen Cemetery in Camp Point.
Visitation will be held Thursday evening from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Camp Point United Methodist Church.
