Surviving is his loving wife of 56 years, Sandra “Sandy” Conway Boylan; his son, Sean Terrance Boylan and his wife, Stephanie Magaro Boylan of Raleigh, NC and he was known as Pappap to his grandchildren, “TJ” and Emmarose. He is also survived by his sister, Margaret Boylan Bellwoar. He was preceded in death by his brother, Joseph of Tulsa, OK.
Terry attended Villanova University and was a proud U.S. Marine Veteran. He was employed by Ingersoll-Rand Company, Rand Air Division, for 30 years-very successfully. He was Past President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Michael Collins Division, and a member of the Camp Hill Fire Company. His passion was life, golf, skiing, hunting and traveling. He enjoyed planning new adventures with Sandy to satisfy their wanderlust.
Terry was most proud of his son, Sean, and his family. He also fulfilled a dream of discovering his Irish heritage and found the Boylan homestead in Cootehill, Ireland and subsequently received his dual citizenship to the two countries he loved the most.
