Joe Hoyt

The family of Joe Hoyt, also known as Henry Waldo Hoyt, sadly announces his passing on August 21st, 2023, at the age of 89. Born and raised as an only child in Charlottetown, PEI, Joe had a deep love for his home, often visiting “the Island.” It was at Acadia University where he met and married Elizabeth Jones, affectionately known as Casey. They resided in various cities before settling in Fredericton in 1966.

Joe accomplished an impressive educational journey, receiving a BSc in Mathematics & Physics from Mount Allison University and a BSc in Civil Engineering from the University of New Brunswick in 1959. He pursued a successful career as a Civil Engineer, working in both Ontario and New Brunswick. Throughout his career, Joe contributed to numerous significant commercial construction projects across the province, with his final endeavor being the Miramichi Court House, which opened its doors in 2003.

Sports played a prominent role in Joe’s life, and he was a passionate athlete. He captained the championship Rugby team of 1955, earning his place in the Acadia Sports Hall of Fame. Joe also actively participated in hockey as an “Oldtimer” until the age of 69. Additionally, he enjoyed basketball, swimming, tennis, and skiing. Joe found entertainment and companionship through playing bridge, forging connections with numerous remarkable individuals.

Joe’s love for his community was demonstrated through his various involvements. He held executive positions in the Kinsmen Club and dedicated his time to the Junior Chamber of Commerce and the Fredericton Figure Skating Club.

Joe is survived by his son Brad, along with his wife Brit and their children Cal and Chloe Hoyt. His daughter Margo, her husband Glen, and their children Colin and Sydney Orsak also mourn his loss. Joe was preceded in death by his loving wife of nearly 65 years.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the compassionate doctors, nurses, and staff at the Oromocto Public Hospital for their exceptional care during Joe’s illness.
