Michael Lee Joyce, 57, of New Britain passed away peacefully in his home, February 7th, 2019. “To make a long story short.” Michael was born February 9th, 1961 to Donald & Maureen Joyce. Michael was a New Britain resident most of his life, but spent a few years on the Cape at Martha’s Vineyard. Michael was a jack of all trades, and could fix anything with a little bit of duct tape. He will always be remembered as a loving, positive and selfless man who was always just a phone call away and willing to help anyone in need no matter how big the job. Family and friends will remember him for his silly smile, countless wisdom and hugs. He Was a life long Red Sox fan, loved camping at Hammonasset, Summer concerts and setting off spectacular firework displays on the Fourth of July. He was survived by his mother Maureen and husband Justin McCarthy. His sister Donna Levesque and husband Paul. Sister Laura Dominique and husband Lincoln. Brother Jim Joyce and wife Dawn and Stepbrother Kirk McCarthy. He leaves behind his beloved nieces and nephews who he never failed to remind them how proud he was of them. Deena, Lauren, Ryan, Ashley, Brian, Kyle & Cody. And the three men who he shared a special bond with Larry, Christopher and Dante. He was predeceased by his father Donald Joyce and nephew David Blancato Joyce. Words will never express the tremendous love everyone who met Mike had for him. You never knew what he was up to with his mischievous shenanigans. The good times we had with you will never be enough and you will be missed forever.
