Hargrave Custom Yachts executive Thomas Joyce dies aged 79

We bring the sad news that Thomas C Joyce, an executive with Hargrave Custom Yachts in Fort Lauderdale, died peacefully on 7 March, 2014, at the Manor Pines skilled nursing facility in Fort Lauderdale.

Mr Joyce was 79 years old and leaves behind two sons, Thomas and Edward Joyce of Haverford, Pennsylvania, and a sister and brother Rosemary and Michael Joyce of Fort Lauderdale.

Prior to moving to Florida to work with his brother and sister at Hargrave, Mr Joyce was the corporate secretary of Raymond Rosen & Co in Philadelphia, the RCA & Whirlpool distributor for the Delaware Valley. In addition he worked for the American Management Association and Dale Carnegie & Associates in New York City.

Mr Joyce attended St Francis Prep School in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, and he graduated from the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. He was honorably discharged from the United State Army.

Loved and admired by all who knew him, Tom was known for his gentle disposition and sense of humour. When asked on his death bed what message he wanted to leave behind, he replied simply, 'Be kind to everyone.'

A celebration of life for Mr Joyce was held for family and coworkers at the Coral Ridge Yacht Club in Fort Lauderdale and the burial will take place in late spring in Philadelphia at the Calvary Cemetery.

Donations in Tom's memory can be made to the charity of your choice.
