Thomas C. Joyce, an executive with Hargrave Custom Yachts in Ft. Lauderdale, died on March 7 under the care of hospice at the Manor Pines skilled nursing facility. Mr. Joyce was 79 and is survived by two sons, Thomas and Edward Joyce of Haverford, PA, a sister Rosemary and brother Michael Joyce of Ft. Lauderdale.



Prior to moving to Florida to work with his brother and sister at Hargrave, Mr. Joyce was the corporate secretary of Raymond Rosen & Co. in Philadelphia, the RCA and Whirlpool distributor for the Delaware Valley. He worked for the American Management Association and Dale Carnegie and Associates in New York City. He graduated from the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania and was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army.



He was known for his gentle disposition and sense of humor. When asked on his death bed what message he wanted to leave behind he replied simply, “Be kind to everyone.”



A celebration of life was held for family and coworkers at the Coral Ridge Yacht Club in Ft. Lauderdale and the burial will take place in late spring in Philadelphia at the Calvary Cemetery.
