Daniel Lewis Hoy
Daniel Lewis Hoy was born in Cortland, New York on
June 2, 1924, the son of Alfred & Ocie (Shively) Hoy.
He passed away quietly at home in Penfield, New York
on August 14, 2006.
After graduating from high school, Dan enlisted in the
United States Air Force in September 1944,
where he served as a pilot.
After the end of World War II,
he attended the University of Syracuse and
joined the Air Force Reserves,
where he rose to the Rank of Major.
Newark, New York. Dan Married Miss Jane Hermenet
on April 12,1947, who is the daughter of
Adrian & Sarah (Boise) Hermenet.
To this union 3 Children were born,
Dennis Avery, Marleigh Ann, and Kathy Jean.
In 1964, Dan moved his family from New York to
Omaha, Nebraska where they remained until 1969,
when they moved to Williamsport, Pennsylvania for a brief period, then again to Medford, New Jersey for 3 years.
By this time, Dennis and Marleigh had gone their separate ways, but both ended up back in Omaha,
So Dan, his wife, and daughter Kathy,
returned to Omaha, where they remained until 1996. Missing their families in New York, Dan and Jane
returned to the Rochester area after their retirement,
and there they remained until the time of his death.
Dan enjoyed coin collecting, the long drives from
New York to Omaha and back again, watching Syracuse play football with the University of Nebraska
(Especially the year Syracuse won!!!)
and his numerous life-long friendships,
but most all, he Loved his Family.
