He attended UMASS and Boston College Law School, and served in the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s Corps from 1971 to 1974, before embarking upon a career as an attorney.
Paul is survived by his wife of 54 years, Karen Joyce, as well as his two daughters Eileen and Kathleen Joyce, and son Andrew Joyce. He was a loving grandfather to four grandchildren, Nicholas, Sarah, Benjamin, and William.
During his life he loved spending time in the family vacation home in Maine. He enjoyed kayaking and boating, playing golf, and spent countless weekend afternoons playing baseball with his son.
