Boyle was a claims representative in Cleveland from 1953 until he retired to Boca Raton, Fla., in 1978. He was 91 when he died in Florida last year. State Auto spokesman Win Logan says the money came “out of the blue” and the company is trying to learn more about Boyle, who had no children. The rest of his estate went to family.
The insurer has turned the inheritance over to its charitable foundation and has named a program for matching corporate gifts after Boyle.
