FORT MYERS, Fla. – Robert A. Joyce, 59, of Fort Myers, Fla., and Poland Spring, went home to be with our Lord Jesus on Saturday, Feb. 16, after a sudden heart episode.

He was born Oct. 18, 1948. Bob has been the beloved husband of Leanne for the past 40 years. He was an adoring grandfather to Jillian and Spencer Gray and Ethan and Harper Joyce.

For 34 years, he was a dedicated and hardworking employee of Southern New England Telephone (SNET), after which he got to enjoy early retirement. He found great joy in being surrounded by his family, particularly his grandchildren and his friends. He had a passion for UCONN women’s and men’s basketball, loved gardening and was the president of the Shady Bend Neighborhood Association. He kept himself busy working on special projects and constantly extended himself to help others.

He is survived by his daughter, Kelly Gray and Jeffrey of Newburyport, Mass.; his son, Stephen Joyce and Monique, of Atlanta, Ga.; he will be missed dearly by his father-in-law, Norman Johnson of Ft. Myers and Plantsville, Conn.; his brother, William Joyce of Gaithersburg, Md.; and countless friends and family.
