Lawrence E."Larry" Joy

LYNDONVILLE Lawrence "Larry" Joy, 79 passed away peacefully at his cherished home on May 14, 2017.

Larry was born in Medina on February 17, 1938. He was the son of the late Laverne and Myrtle (Allen) Joy. Larry was proud to be the descendent of some of the first residents of Lyndonville, the town in which he grew up in, raised his family in and lived out his retired years in. Larry married his wife Norma (Tinkous) on September 5, 1964. Together they raised three sons, Dan, Darryl and Dana. Larry took much pride in his children and was a devoted family man. He worked 32 years at General Motors in Rochester in order to provide for his family. Larry was also an Army veteran who spent a part of his service in Okinawa as a decoder for the intelligence department. In his younger years, Larry coached little league and Babe Ruth baseball and drove dirt track race cars. Larry also enjoyed reading, watching sports, listening to oldies, playing cards, spoiling his dogs and relaxing at the property that he called his home most of his life. Most of all, he valued family, both immediate and extended and enjoyed visiting at family reunions or just dropping by to have coffee. He was pre-deceased by his parents, brothers Gordon and Allen Joy, nephews Michael and Timothy Joy and brother in law Howard Tinkous.

He is survived by his wife Norma, sons Dan, Darryl (Colleen), Dana (Patricia ),grandchildren Alyssa and Dylan Joy, step granddaughter Jennifer Schossig and her son Ian, sister Carol Jean Richard, sister in law Bonnie Joy and brothers in law Jerry (Shirley) Tinkous and Alan (Vicky) Tinkous.
