John Francis Joyce

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Jim Sullivan on March 5, 2012:

It's been 18 years and I still can't believe John is gone.

We grew up in the same place, the steel patch outside Chicago in Northwest Indiana, where he was Mr. Basketball- no one has touched his accomplishments since.

There was never anyone like the Buzzard, and he and the beautiful Pam were a love-story for the books.

I love him and miss him still, as do we all.

God, please hold John close and safe in your Big Hand.
