Joy's parents & Father's parents and in-laws moved from Southern Utah in covered wagons & arrived in Jackson, Wyoming in Oct 1889 being the first settlers to homestead that frontier county. His father improved his homestead & desert claim into a cattle ranch before his death in 1898. His mother married again & had two more children. When his oldest brother died in 1918, Joy returned from the Navy and worked the ranch with his younger brother until 1929. Then they each took their share of the land & debts.
In 1929, he married Mary Eurilla Rich, a widow, who had three children from her previous marriage. He had with her two additional children. They moved from Jackson to Boise Valley in 1937 to a warmer climate where there was a better education for their children.
Joy had two dairy farms in Boise valley and ended up in his latter years on a small farm just raising beef cattle. He and his wife then moved to a place in Nampa in their last years. They enjoyed going often to Arizona to visit their oldest daughter. All of this family were & are very active in the LDS church.
He was a hardworking man and a good father. He was very much loved by his wife, his step-children & his children.
