In Memoriam: Daniel W. Joy, `52  We were notified by George Wood, `54, of the passing of Dan Joy on January 4.  The announcement was made through Dan's church, New Hope Lutheran Church, Jamaica, NY.  His wake and funeral were conducted January 9, 2016.  Dan was centrally involved with his church.  In the absence of an obituary we obtained the following citation from UAlbany for Dan as a Distinguished Alumni at UAlbany in 1997.

Dan JoyJustice Daniel W. Joy demonstrates a deep interest in the well being of his fellow human beings, witnessed in part through a life of professional community service, as well as substantial leadership in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America and in ecumenical circles in his home of Jamaica, NY. As Justice in the Appellate Division of Supreme Court of the State of New York, Second Department, he is known for decisions blending significant compassion, understanding and law in the busiest appeals court in the State. Justice Joy is one of two African American justices on this court. After graduating from Albany, he served in the Korean conflict in the U.S Army. He received his J.D. degree from Brooklyn Law School, and then devoted 25 years of his life to public service in the field of housing, serving Deputy Commissioner of New York City's housing department, under Mayor John Lindsey, Abe Beame, and Ed Koch. His most demanding and highly visible position was overseeing the City's central heat complaint facility in Harlem. In 1983 he was elected to Civil Court of the City of New York. He has lectured extensively at colleges and law schools, and has written numerous book reviews on housing matters. He has provided leadership to community organizations, and promotes the value of education in his work with young people. Justice Joy has received the Distinguished Disciple award of his Lutheran Church synod, which serves 90,000 people in New York State. His married to Ruby, a tax accountant. They have two children and four grandchildren. A life dedicated to varied service is evident in this recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award.
