Ron Joyce is being remembered by Hamilton Health Sciences as an outstanding philanthropist and community builder.
“Mr. Joyce was a friend of Hamilton Health Sciences and a personal friend of mine,” says Rob MacIsaac, President and CEO. “He will be remembered for many things – his legendary business achievements, his strong sense of community, and his leadership in philanthropy. He always wanted to know what people needed and how he might help meet those needs. He will be missed. We share our deepest sympathies with the Joyce family.”
Pearl Veenema, President and CEO of the Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation, remembers Ron Joyce as a “remarkable champion of children. One of Ron’s most enduring legacies will be the Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre, part of McMaster Children’s Hospital. The lives of so many children and their families have forever been touched by his tremendous generosity. We extend our deepest sympathies to the Joyce family and the Joyce Family Foundation board and staff.”
Flags at Hamilton Health Sciences are being lowered to half-mast to mark Mr. Joyce’s passing.
