Obituary For Zachary T. Boyle

Age 27, unexpectedly on Thursday, August 25, 2022, of Castle Shannon formerly of Upper Saint Clair.
Loving fiancé of Austen Tarabay; beloved son of John (Debra) Boyle and Jeaneen Agliori; cherished brother of Brian (Carlie Oros) and Bradley (Bella Bereziychuk) and John Argento; grandson of Dolores and the late James Agliori and Catherine and the late Ray Boyle. Also Survived by aunts, uncles, "Meat Loafs Army", cousins, co workers and many friends. Zak had an infectious personality that brought joy to everyone that he encountered. He cared deeply for everyone in his life and made a conscious effort to make sure every person in a room felt valued. If he wasn't creating a personal, one-on- one connection with you, then he was using his amazing smile and charm (along with a classic Zak saying) to lighten up the room and to make everyone feel happy. Zak loved spending his time cooking/learning the ins and outs of every cuisine, researching trivia/fun facts about any topic imaginable (to simply just be the best and know the most about something,) and spending time outdoors... especially "up the cabin." He took great pride in going against the grain and being unique. He certainly was. There is no one else as special as our "Zaky."

Friends will be received at the John F. Slater Funeral Home, Inc., 412-881-4100, 4201 Brownsville Road, Brentwood 15227, Tuesday, August 30, 2022, 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm. Funeral Prayer on Wednesday morning at 8:45. Mass of Christian Burial in Resurrection Parish, St. Thomas More Church at 10:00 a.m. If desired, family suggests contributions to St. Anthony School Programs, 2700 Morange Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15205.

    I came into Zak's life recently as a new hire into ISG, but got to know him quickly as we were paired together for training. We talked about many things during training that weren't inclusive of just work including his plan for his proposal, asking his future brother in law for permission, and how very excited he was to start the rest of his life with his future wife. He was always genuine, very empathetic with clients, always had a humorous remark, and assisted me even when he wasn't my trainer anymore. Zak's life was cut short but the impact he had on the people around him will live on. I am grateful that I got to know Zak before he passed as he touched my life and made my day better, which is a gift that is hard to find. I give the deepest sympathies to his family, we at PNC will always remember Zak Boyle and the contribution he gave to us on a daily basis. – LL

    When Zak was a senior in high school, his brother Brad came to me and asked if we could sponsor an exchange student from Puerto Rico. I asked Brad "Where will he sleep?". Zak said "Give him my room. I'll float". A funny thing about Zak was that, he would be found in the morning where he ended his night. Zak never put himself to bed. So, six days later we were at the airport picking up Gian Karlo or "G". They all became fast friends. But G soon shattered his knee in a basketball injury. Brian Zak & Brad waited on G while he was laid up in bed. After the knee surgery, G had to go for rehab appointments. They were three times a week for nine months. Zak took him to nearly every one. When the time came for Zak to go to college, the bond between these boys was made clear to me as I watched them struggling to hold back tears as they said goodbye. It breaks my heart knowing that this world will no longer benefit from the golden hearted acts of selfless kindness Zachary gave. Dad

    Every time i came into BRGR whether working or not, Zak made a point to excitedly welcome me and just tell me how much he missed me and all the crazy stories he had. Always acted like he was my best friend even though we wouldn't see each other in months. There's not many people that actively light up my world, Zak was definitely one of the happiest and friendliest person I've ever worked with. I remember he worked overnight making pickles for picklesburgh and even though it was a horrible amount of work he made sure to greet everyone with a smile as they walked in and tried to make people laugh. It is very hard to see the world lose someone so kind and loving.

    Every shift I ever worked with him. Picklesburgh. Being called "Jamie" in his Arnold Shwarzenegger voice, hanging out after work at the saloon and countless other memories that would be too long to write ❤️

    Zak, you were one of the only people who was willing to be my friend during my time at USC. I was so glad when I came back senior year so worried and scared, and you were randomly seated next to me for English. You were always a kind, friendly face I looked for both at USC and then by wonderful chance, at RMU. I am devastated. My greatest condolences to your family, your fiancé, and your many friends.

    Zak, I am grateful I got to know you. I think back to all the memories we share and I laugh and I cry. I'll never forget when Carlie and I picked you up from a concert and asked you for directions to your house and you gave us directions to TACO BELL!!!! I was so mad at you in that moment but I wish that I could experience more memories with you like that. You'll forever be missed Zak, things are not going to be the same without you. We love you Zak and I know you can feel all the love we have for you up there in Heaven. ❤️ We'll take care of Austen for you, she'll forever be in the friend group and apart of the family we all have.

    Zaky was the perfect son-in-law. He was the love of my daughter's life. I truly adored him. I love you Zaky.xoxo

    I still can not believe it. I'm his friend from Saudi. I just talked him a couple days ago. He told me he would love to come down here to visit. I got to know him in our freshman year and we've been friends since then. Zak you will be alway in my mind. My condolences to all his family

    Zak was my very first friend when we all started school at RMU. He's been a close friend ever since that day. We've made many memories together with all of our friends. He was an absolute goof ball, but a loving and caring guy at heart. His smile and laugh were infectious when he was around. Though he was taken too soon from us, we'll never forget the impact he's made on each and every one of us. He is and always will be loved. I'll never forget Zak/Zach squared as over the years it's almost like you've been apart of me. Though I may still be Big Zach to everyone, you'll always be Little Zak. We love you, brother.
