Garrison J. Boyle, III
Garrison J. Boyle III, 87, of Bowling Green died Monday October 29, 2012, at Bowling Green Health and Rehab Center.
He became Pvt. Boyle in 1942, when he joined the U.S. Army. He began training with General George Patton’s brigade at Fort A.P. Hill, and ultimately served with him in the African desert as a motorcycle messenger.
He quickly ascended the ranks, went to OCS and became an aviator. It was at this time that Lt. Boyle served in the Korean War as a helicopter pilot.
In 1962 Capt. Boyle and his team of test pilots set seven world records in the HU1B Huey for flying faster, higher and longer than anyone else had done.
He was chosen for, attended and passed astronaut training, but decided to remain a helicopter pilot instead. Maj. Boyle was given the honor of being selected to become aircraft carrier certified through many takeoffs and landings on its deck. For this, he was presented with an actual “tail hook.”
In 1967, Lt. Col. Boyle was sent to serve in yet another combat zone, the Vietnam War. This time he was a rescue pilot for downed helicopter crews and ground personnel while flying his helicopter through nonstop gunfire and Agent Orange.
His military career spanned 32 years. Col. Boyle was stationed at the Pentagon when he retired in 1974 as the Army’s senior test pilot.
His many awards include both the Legion of Merit and the Distinguished Flying Cross.
He and his wife, Julia, settled in Bowling Green, where he was very active in the VFW and the American Legion.
Survivors include his wife, Julia Martin Boyle; his daughter, Cathy Kuhns, (George), of Milford; his daughter-in-law, Judy Boyle of King George; four grandchildren, Darrel Simpkins, Matthew Hoover, Michael Boyle and Brian Boyle; and five great-grandchildren.
