Obituary

Henry Robert (Bob) Joy, born February 25, 1937, lost his battle with Alzheimer’s Disease on Thursday, December 2, 2021. He is a Beloved Husband, Father, Brother, Grandfather, Uncle, and Friend. Bob was born in Miami, where as a teenager he snorkeled and spearfished in the Bay and played football and basketball for Miami Jackson High School.

He was a Veteran who proudly served his Country in the Korean Conflict. Bob worked for Florida Power and Light (FPL) for 36 years in various positions, of which his favorite was working with the crew. His true love was traveling the world, where he walked on the Great Wall of China, and viewed the Terracotta Soldiers up close, toured the Pyramids of Egypt, wondered at the beauty of New Zealand, and was intrigued by Iceland. He enjoyed life, played golf, and snow skied into his 70’s. He was truly a people person, his mantra was “laugh and joke and carry on”. He never met a stranger.

We will miss you and may your travel to your eternal home be your greatest journey. – Marie, Jan, Chuck, Jordan, Jake, Allison, and Nathaniel.

An Inurnment Ceremony with Military Honors will take place at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery in Mims, Florida. Services are private at this time.

    To all of Henry's family, please accept my condolences. I first met Marie through her mediation work, then later we became friends and still later pulled in our husbands and became social friends. My David and I were so happy when Marie & Henry came to spend a few days at an old summer place near Cape Cod about 8-9 years ago. We compared notes about "old days hanging around on sailboats." Here in Florida, they hosted us for lunches and dinners, we shared a love of music & going to concerts. Henry was always a jolly soul, with a great sense of humor and a twinkle in his eye; he was so proud of his family, his work and his travels. My David passed 9 months ago, so I like to think they are floating above at peace and talking again about serving in the Korean conflict, visiting China, being at the helm of small sailboats, and finding beautiful ladies to marry later in their lives. May Henry rest in peace.
