In loving memory of Robert “Terry” Hoy, who passed away on Feb. 13, 2021.
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, he resided in Mathews County on Gwynn’s Island. He was a graduate of Benedictine College Preparatory and Virginia Commonwealth University, both in Richmond, Va.
Terry is survived by the love of his life, Susan (Sue); stepchildren, Ryan (Kristen), Taylor Anne, and a beautiful granddaughter, Elizabeth Jane. Terry was an amazing, loving father and husband. Other survivors include stepchildren, Danny (Carolyn) and Michael (Mariah); two grandchildren, Allyssa and Sean. Terry is also survived by three brothers, Bobby (Linda), Larry (Jeanne), Tom (Carol), and his sister, Anita (Fred), along with several nieces and nephews whom he adored.
Terry was a lifelong outdoorsman. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening and fixing just about everything. Terry, with Sue, enjoyed sailing, boating and cruising the Chesapeake Bay. Terry started his own landscaping/lawn care business which evolved into a successful excavation business.
After suffering some health issues nine years ago, he pursued restoring their boat “SuSeaQ,” building custom fishing rods and repairing fishing rods and reels for many around the Chesapeake Bay. Terry donated most of the proceeds to the Mobjack Rowing Association and volunteered many hours of his time while his daughter, Taylor, participated on the rowing team.
Terry’s quick laugh, off-hand jokes and constant smile will be greatly missed by family, friends and neighbors. A celebration of life will be planned for late spring or summer 2021.
