Peter Boyle was a LaSalle Grad. He was commencement speaker at LaSalle in 1994, and when he came up to the lecturn to speak, the students yelled out "Putting on the Ritz!" he smiled and repsonded like Frankenstein in Young Frankenstein. As much as I loved him in Everybody Loves Raymond, I loved him even more in Young Frankenstien.

I never did quite get into "Everyone Loves Raymond", but the role that Peter Boyle played that I most admired was that of beleagured union boss Max Graham in the movie "FIST". Sylvester Stallone was the lead in that movie made in 1978.

I'm saddened to hear the news about Peter Boyle. He was one of my favorite actors. He was PERFECT in Everybody Loves Raymond. I can't imagine how his tv wife, Marie, would take his death. So sad.. In memory of Mr. Boyle.

The best was a few weeks back on Everybody Loves Raymond did the Holloween episode and he dressed up as Frankinstein (suttle humor) to give out the candy to the kids.....and ended up giving out condoms.

Sad but not a big surprise; he'd been looking more gaunt and sickly in recent seasons of "Raymond" and looked particularly ill doing a walk-on on Comedy Central's "Mind Of Mencina" about a year ago. It was easy to see he was on the way out; I'm surprised he was only 71. Anyone know what the cause of death was; the article didn't say? Anyway, yes, he'll be missed a lot.

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 18): Didn't he just make an Alka Seltzer commercial? It was a remake of the old 1960's ad where he says, "I can't believe I ate that whole thing
Yes I remember that also but I think it might have been about a year ago.He made the commercial with the actresss who played his wife.Dammit I can't think of her name now.IMHO He was a lot funnier than Raymond. He will be missed
