Tony O’Baoill

Antoine “Tony” O’Baoill, 69, of Watertown passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 9. Born in Dublin, Ireland, he was the son of Margaret (O’Reilly) and Anthony Boyle. Tony was raised and spent most of his childhood in Finglas, Dublin, Ireland.

Tony was a renaissance man. He was an avid hiker, outdoorsman, car enthusiast and voracious reader as well as an excellent chef. His travels took him all over the world, often returning to Ireland to visit family and friends. He spent most of his professional life in the automotive industry.

Tony was a loving father to Pearse O’Baoill and his wife, Megan, of Hopkinton, and a devoted grandfather to his grandchildren, Rory and Luke O’Baoill. He is also survived by his brothers, Eddy, Steven, Bernard and Marcus, and his sisters, Jane and Mairead, as well as many brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends who will miss him dearly.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Due to COVID-19, service arrangements are private, under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton. In lieu of flowers, donations in Tony’s name may be made to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (themmrf.org).

    I went to school in Dublin with Tony in the late sixties; we both left O Connell’s School in 1970, Though I’ve not seen Tony for 50 years, his youthful handsome elegance is imprinted still. We both played for the school soccer team, and famously played in the All Ireland final in 1970, a team managed by Peter Sheridan a fellow pupil and since acclaimed writer, theatre and film exponent. We were also on the school dance committee together, organizing the most fantastic teenage Saturday dance nights in Dublin. One significant Saturday having set the hall up, we played football with the band in the hall before the evening started up. The band was Skid Row and one of their members was Phil Lynnot, subsequently of Tin Lizzie fame.
    Phil was also youthful handsome and elegant, just like Tony.
    ”I can see them dancing in the moonlight on that long ago hot Summer night “
    I will always remember Tony caught in the spotlight in his youthful prime in that hall long ago.
