Patrick Joseph Joyce
Age 78, died peacefully on August 10, 2017. He had lived as he loved, and he loved his home in Stillwater, watching the Vikings, Twins, and Gophers, going for walks, playing games, NYT cross-word puzzles, traveling, books, classical music, hosting an annual blackjack party, and above all else - his friends and family, who will sorely miss his fun loving nature. Patrick was preceded in death by his parents Walter Joyce and Rosella Ross Joyce, and brother Jerry. He is survived by his wife of 22 years, Patricia Joyce, his sister Sharon (Duffy), and his brother Bob (Rosalie). Also survived by step-children, step-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many cousins and loved ones. Patrick was a graduate of Cretin High School (’57) and the University of Minnesota and served in the U.S. Army. A celebration of life in Patrick's honor will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Cretin Derham Hall High School (www.cretin-derhamhall.org; 651-690-2443) are preferred. The members of Patrick’s family wish to express their sincerest gratitude to the staff at the U of M FIT-AD Trial program for their guidance and compassionate care. Private interment at Fort Snelling National Cemetery.
