It's "Boxwood Blight" A relatively new disease that started in New England a few years back and is spreading west-ward. No defined cause, or known cure to date. One of those tough soil/root related diseases.

It looks like something bigger was planted beside them and the overgrowth caused the holly to die off on the sides. wont ever really be nice like the front, but usually "some" new growth will develop.

I agree with that. Almost sure it's not boxwood and 99% sure it's some sort of Ilex (Jap. Holly). And that's the variety I'd guess too.

Why it died? Hard for me to say. They are very hardy here. I don't see that up here in Oregon. Usually, it's the boxwood that don't make it. Japanese Holly are always the go-to plant for us if we want that look.
