Obituary

John D. Joyce, age 82 of Warren, passed away peacefully on July 27, 2017. He was born on May 24, 1935 in Maidstone Township, Ontario, Canada to George William Ray and Grace (nee Christie) Joyce.

John attended Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario before transferring to the University of Michigan for graduate studies where he met his caring wife, Joyce. Following the receipt of his Master’s degree, John went on to work as a Computer Research Engineer for the General Motors Research Lab for 35 years. In John’s free time, he was a proud Rotarian and was extremely involved in the Clean Water Program for the Dominican Republic. He and his wife were unquestionably world travelers. Their travels included, but are not limited to all fifty states, ten providences, three territories and seventy-one countries.

John is dearly loved and will be deeply missed.

Beloved husband of Joyce for over 57 years. Loving father of David (Lisa) Joyce, Karen (the late John) Joyce and Michael Joyce. Treasured grandfather of Catie Smith, Alexa Joyce, Dalton Joyce, Victoria Guy and the late Zachary Joyce. He cherished his special dogs; Minnie and Ellie.
