Joe was born in Gloversville, New York on January 16th, 1944 to the late Lucia May (D’Errico) Roy and Joseph Raymond Roy Sr. Joe grew up in the West End of Gloversville and graduated from Gloversville High School. He then went on to earn a degree in Marketing from Quinnipiac University.

Joe worked in the wood products industry for most of his career. First at Pratt Read in Ivoryton, Connecticut until he was transferred to Allen Rogers Limited in 1986. There he was Vice President of Sales and Marketing and later became General Manager. At the time of his passing, he was working as a Marketing Consultant for Kemp Enterprises in Farmington, Maine.

Joe is survived by his wife Jackie Henry Roy and their four children. Jonathan and his wife Ellen of Hamden, Connecticut, Captain Tammy Muckenfuss of Wiesbaden, Germany, Lt. Col.

I’m so very sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. My family (Pearl and Frank Glover) were best friends with Lucy and Joe Sr. I have so many wonderful memories of them. Joe and Tony were the nicest guys in our neighborhood. My condolences to you Tony and family and all of Joe’s family. Cosette Glover Lotz

I was four when we met;...he was three. Joe, along with his parents and sister, Sandy, lived next door to my family. He was at 38 Grove St.. I don't believe his brother, Tony, had been born at the time. (How many years between the 2 of you, Tony?)

I recall sneaking over our rented property frequently into his family's backyard and enjoying Joe's company as we laughed, played, and had a good time.

We became extremely close,…confiding in each other when older while noticing and focusing upon the opposite sex. He became quite the handsome young man. Though he, himself, did not notice this right away, all the young ladies did. You could see it in their eyes.

He moved to Meredith, New Hampshire in his adult years while I lived in Fort Plain, NY….just under a five hour ride. However, we spoke on the phone, exchanged e-mails, and did spend time with each other occasionally. The last time was 2 to 3 years ago. Very appropriately, we met at Wohlfarth’s Pond, walked all the way around it while reminiscing, laughing, sharing stories. Then, we left for lunch at Partners’ Pub in J’town. And, it didn’t end there. Our delight with each other continued until it was time for him to leave.

He was an extremely kind person, and I’ll continue to express my love for Joe, he who became my best friend.
