Michael Joseph Dwyer

March 5, 1951 ~ December 12, 2020 (age 69)


In 2020, Kathleen “Kathi” Regina Boyle Dwyer and her husband Michael “Mike” Joseph Dwyer went home to Jesus on January 5 and December 12 respectively. They were married for 37 years. 

Kathi was born to John and Billie Boyle and raised in Holland, Bucks County, graduating from Council Rock HS. Kathi was predeceased by both of her parents, and her younger sister Tara Boyle Eshelman. She is survived by her older brother, Michael Boyle of Holland, Pa. Kathi received her BSN from Jefferson University and dedicated her career to nursing. She retired from Pottstown Memorial Medical Center where she worked for over 40 years, first in the ICU and then in PACU. Some of Kathi’s closest friends were fellow PMMC nurses and colleagues, and she remained close to them her whole life. Kathi had many interests, including gardening, learning about history, and traveling (going to Ireland twice with her daughters!). She will be remembered for her sense of humor and her love of fall, horses, and HGTV. 

Mike was born to Joseph and Lois Dwyer and raised first in Mayfair, Philadelphia and then Jenkintown, Pa. He graduated from Bishop McDevitt HS. Mike is survived by his siblings Kathy Dwyer of Jenkintown, Pa, Mark (Angela) Dwyer of Rydal, Pa, and Chris Dwyer (Rick Yannarell) of Tequesta, Fl. Mike made his career as a carpenter at Kutztown University, and developed some of his closest friendships there; he considered his colleagues his second family. Mike loved adventures, getting his diving, sailing, and pilot’s licenses. He loved the shore, particularly Ocean City, NJ, especially when going with his family. Mike will always be remembered for his sense of humor and always going out of his way to help others. 

Mike and Kathi are survived by their two daughters and son-in-law; Katie Dwyer of Philadelphia, Pa, and Meghan & Brad Luckenbill of Fleetwood, Pa. Mike and Kathi loved going on adventures with their kids, and creating a home filled with laughter and love. 

Mike and Kathi were active members of New Life BFC in Oley, Pa for many years. They held firmly onto their hope in Jesus and his resurrection, and eagerly looked forward to their home-going. 

Both Mike and Kathi leave behind much loved cousins, nephews, nieces, and friends. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in Kathi’s name or to the American Cancer Society in Mike’s name. Due to Covid, interment will be private and a celebration of life will be held at a later time.
