The Wellsville and Andover communities are mourning the loss of Timothy Joyce, who passed away after an accident on Monday afternoon.
Canandaigua-based State Police said a Ford pickup truck driven by Joyce, 40, of Wellsville, struck a railroad bridge on Half Acre Road in Aurelius and airbags were deployed. Troopers said he was taken to Auburn Community Hospital and pronounced deceased.
Tim and his wife, Rebecca Joyce, have three children.
The online photos and condolences have been posted today from family and friends.
Jason Kulik posted a photo of the two hunting and said, “RIP mighty hunter and friend. You will be deeply missed. My deepest condolences to your family and all who loved you.”
Carrie Witter wrote, “Tim, you were such a wonderful man! You always put a smile on my face with a good joke or a mood swing at work. I will always remember having a beer with you discussing our wedding and golf. You’re truly going to be missed my friend.”
He was a 1999 Andover graduate and attended Alfred State. He was a volunteer in the community and brought back the Wellsville Youth Wrestling program.
In a post on Facebook, Nina Kurtz, who was involved in the youth and high school wrestling program wrote, “Fly high … you will be dearly missed. Definitely a lot of heavy hearts. The wrestling may and coaching you and Bill did for the Wellsville Wrestling Club will never be the same. Continue to look down and know we are all thinking about your family, wife, kids and loved ones. Rest easy my friend.”
