Benjamin W. Boyles

We are saddened to announce the passing of beloved husband, father and son, Benjamin W. Boyles, 44, of Boiling Springs, PA, on Saturday, April 30, 2022. He was born January 13, 1978, in Harrisburg to Vickie (Monismith) Boyles and the late Leonard Boyles. Ben married his soulmate and best friend, Melissa (Mann) Boyles, on October 10, 2009, in Gardners, PA. In 2015, he earned his degree in Information Technology from Central Penn College. Ben worked from home as an SAP Configuration Analyst for doTERRA International. He previously worked for Carlisle Construction Materials for almost eighteen years. He attended CEFC in Carlisle and was recently baptized.

Ben loved fishing, especially at his favorite spot, Indian River Inlet, in Delaware. He was always waiting for the big striper migrations. He enjoyed spending time with his family, cooking and grilling, video gaming, sitting by the campfire, everything Star Wars and traveling to the beaches in DE. His dream was to move to the beach in DE and open his own business, Benjy’s Breakfast and Bait.

Ben was the most loving, giving and humble husband, father, son, friend and co-worker. He always liked to make people smile and laugh. Most would agree “Big Ben” was a big teddy bear. He will forever be in our hearts and greatly missed. We have peace knowing he was welcomed into heaven and we will see him again someday. Ben’s favorite scripture was, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Revelation 22:13

In addition to his mother, he is survived by his wife, Melissa (Mann) Boyles, of Boiling Springs; his daughter, Nevaeh Dehoff, of Dover, DE; his son, Lucien Boyles, of Boiling Springs; his dog, Maghnus, and scorpion, Spike.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Ben Boyles Memorial Fund. Donations can be made in person or mailed to: Members 1st FCU, 321 York Rd., Carlisle, PA 17013. Arrangements are being handled by Hollinger Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., Mt. Holly Springs, PA 17065.

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I got the opportunity to work together with Ben on the same team at doTERRA. He was always such a happy and incredibly helpful guy. My heart goes out to his beloved family. I got to play chess with him for an IT board game lunch once and the dude was really good. Super smart guy. This news hit me really hard, and it makes me that much more grateful for to know that he's not gone forever and that we'll absolutely fist bump in the next life. Only all the best and my thanks across the board to both Ben and his dear family!

So sorry Ben was called home as those of us left behind will miss him. Also, so happy he received the ultimate healing and is present with the Lord. It was an honor to be one of his prayer warriors and I continue to lift up your family in prayer during this tough time.
