Stanley Hoy Obituary

IPSWICH- Mr. Stanley J. Hoy, 75, of Ipswich, formerly of Topsfield and Lynn, beloved husband of the late Carol Y. (Sarcia) Hoy, passed away suddenly on Thursday, October 19, 2023 at his home.

Born in Lynn, he was the son of the late Harold and Theresa (Abcunas) Hoy. He was raised and educated in Lynn and was a graduate of Lynn English Highschool. He was a devoted son and was especially close with his Father, Harold. In high school Stanley worked in his father’s shop, Hoy’s Tool Services on the Lynnway in Lynn. Stanley continued his education at Wentworth Institute of Technology and Northeastern University.

An honorably discharged veteran, Mr. Hoy proudly served his country as a member of the United States Marine Corps where he received several medals and commendations including two Purple Heart Medals for his brave service in Vietnam. He was discharged in 1969 attaining the rank of Corporal.

Following the war Stanley worked his entire career helping veterans. He was the Supervisor of the National Service Office for the Disabled American Veterans organization in Boston for many years, prior to transferring to their Manchester New Hampshire office. Stanley’s hard work, dedication, care, and support of fellow veterans is unprecedented. He gave of himself every day to ensure fellow veterans received the care they needed and deserved.

A loving husband and Dad, Stanley loved his family. He married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Carol, whom he shared over forty years of marriage. Together they shared so many incredible memories, traveling, gardening, entertaining friends and family and especially enjoyed quiet times at home with their cats and daughter Noelle. He was forever heart broken when he lost his beloved Carol to cancer in 2010. Stanley leaves behind his cherished daughter Noelle whom he loved dearly and shared a close bond.

Stanley was easy-going, quick to smile and loved to tell stories and make people laugh. He enjoyed meeting up and spending time with his many close friends, often seen at the 466 restaurant in Danvers. He was a proud veteran and enjoyed keeping in touch with fellow Marines from bootcamp and his time in service. He was an avid car enthusiast and a longtime member of the Stray Dogs Corvette Club. He so loved his German Shepherd’s Marlo and his treasured Sarsha who predeceased him. He loved taking them to Crane’s Beach and Hood Pond. He was an avid football fan and so enjoyed watching Patriot games at home and with friends. He was close and loved to spend time with his many family members. Stanley will be remembered for his love of family, friends, country, and faith and will be deeply missed by all those hearts he touched throughout his life.

Surviving Stanley is his daughter Noelle Hoy of Chelmsford, his sisters, Theresa Chapman of Bedford, NH and Carol Lange of Toms River, NJ and many loving nieces, nephews, cousins and brothers and sisters in-law.
