BROCKWAY (PA) RECORD, November 17, 1933


J. W. Hoy, one of DuBois's prominent business men for the past 45 years died suddenly at noon Thursday of last week, of heart trouble. He was stricken while returning to DuBois after visiting his daughter in Indiana. As the automobile neared Big Run he became ill and was taken immediately to the office of a doctor who discovered that life was extinct.

For several years Mr. Hoy had not enjoyed the best of health, and for a few weeks has been confined to his home. It has been known for some time that his heart condition was far from satisfactory.

Jay Hoy was born in Brockway, Nov. 2, 1870. He was the son of the late A. L. Hoy who made his home in this place for many years. He had many friends here who will regret his sudden passing.

He was engaged in the Jewelry business before the big fire in 1888 and conducted one of the leading business places in DuBois at the time of his death.

Deceased is survived by his wife and four daughters, Mrs. Willa Vandervort, of Patterson, N.J., Mrs. Adaline Zeigler of Indiana, Mrs. Catherine Fuller of Kenmore, N.Y, and Mrs. Anna Bartlett, of Kane, two brothers, Harry Hoy, of Beaver Falls and Emmett Hoy of Kane, and three sisters Miss Myrtle Hoy and Mrs. Bird Mohney, of Erie, and Mrs. Laura Matson, of Brockway R.D. 1. He was a member of the various Masonic Bodies. Funeral services were conducted Sunday afternoon Rev. A. J. Rinker in charge, and interment was made in Morningside Cemetery.
