Dennis Boyle, member of Daily Facts Advisory Board, RHS Class of '64
The Reading for Redlanders Editorial Board is sad to announce the passing of our former Redlands Daily Facts Advisory Board colleague Dennis Boyle.
Dennis died March 5 at the age of 70.
Dennis’ quiet modesty masked a quick mind and a life of achievement and adventure.
He was awarded the Air Medal with Bronze Star as a reconnaissance attack navigator with the Navy during the war in Vietnam.
He served five years as Director of the Department of Public Social Services for Riverside County, then was chosen by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as California State Director of Social Services, where he served for five years.
He was a Redlands High School alumnus and graduated in 1964.
Like everyone who worked with Dennis, we on the advisory board were uplifted by his thoughtful approach to any issue under consideration. He was more likely to ask probing questions than stake out a position. No matter how heated things got, Dennis always had a twinkle in his eye that kept us from taking ourselves too seriously. He was generous and caring toward everyone he encountered.
He represented a conservative, small-government perspective and reminded us all to look at issues from all sides before taking our stand.
We love him and we miss him.
Dennis is survived by his wife Sherrie Boyle, his four daughters, two brothers and nine grandchildren.

Feb. 8, 1948, 17-year-old RHS senior Margie Lee Winn was killed on the side of the road between Palm Springs and Redlands.
Her friend, Redlands photographer Jim Sloan, had pulled his car over so they could synchronize their watches to the car's dashboard clock.
One of the largest manhunts in county history failed to turn up the shooter, and Margie Lee is now listed in the Encyclopedia of Unsolved Crimes.
An anonymous letter sent to the Redlands Police Chief claiming credit for the murder would later spark speculation that Margie was the first victim of the Zodiac killer.
The killing is strange. The investigation is strange. The reporting is strange. And then it goes quiet.
