He is survived by his children; son Michael Roberts, daughters Kendra Hasselbrink, Kimberly Yee, and Adrienne Yee, granddaughters Jasmine Louise Yee Hasselbrink and Ashley Yee-Smith, sons-in-law Roger Hasselbrink and Dennis Smith, and former wife Mary Roberts.|
He was a wonderful father who went above and beyond, working painting and construction seven days a week to provide for his family. He always made sure they were cared for and provided for, and continues to do so. He instilled in his children the principles to do the same, creating a legacy that will be passed on for generations to come. One of the many reasons he will live in our hearts forever.
He loved to entertain, and be entertained. His love of cooking, music, movies, books, video games, family gatherings, and card games impressed upon us a desire to live our lives enjoying all of the great gifts we are blessed with each day, and to appreciate the people in our lives that we care about. His friends and family will miss him so much.

John Edgar Joy, Sr., 82, of Loveville, MD died January 8, 2008 at his residence. Born July 13, 1925 in Loveville, MD he was the son of the late George Edgar and Anna Missouri Wathen Joy. He was the loving husband of the late Mary Rita Owens Joy whom he married on October 5, 1946 in Our Lady’s Chapel, Medley’s Neck, MD and who preceded him in death on November 14, 2001. He is survived by his children; Ruth Joy Coombs and her husband Ira John, Betty Joy Thomas and her husband C. George, all of Loveville, MD and John Edgar Joy, Jr. of Prescott, AZ as well as 7 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister Madeline McCreary of Baltimore, MD.
He was a judge at the local election poles from 1947 to the early 1980’s. He was a driver for the State Highway Administration (SHA) for 17 years, retiring in 1986. Many times, while working for SHA, he took prisoners to trash pick-up sites on the local highways and would oversee them, giving them advice on how to walk the straight and narrow path. They fondly called him Pappy. He raised English Setters, sold milk, eggs, firewood and livestock. He worked as a construction foreman. He even did some bartending to make extra money in his younger years. His passion, however, was working the land. He and his wife Rita bought the old Bishop Place in Loveville and turned it into a profitable tobacco farm. He dreamed of owning this land as a teenager and worked tirelessly to make his dream come true. He retired from farming in 2001. His true claim to fame is his compassion, tenderness and strength, all of which he used to help others. He was a dynamic father and grandfather who will always be remembered as the tall, strong “Gindy” with the gentle hands.
