Popular and well known agent dies approaching landmark year

A well known westcountry estate agent has died just ahead of what would have been his 50th year with the same firm.

Michael Joyce, former senior managing partner of Cooper and Tanner, had been seriously ill for some months.

A statement from the firm says: “Michael was a hugely respected land agent and livestock auctioneer whose expertise and experience was unrivalled in the region.”


He worked in the company’s Castle Cary and Frome branches, as well as at auctions and cattle markets.

The firm’s statement continues: “As Senior Managing Partner, he played a central role in the ongoing growth and vitality of our firm, being at all times an astute, fair and inspiring leader to his fellow partners and all employees of the firm.”

On retiring as a partner he remained with the firm as a senior consultant.

“Thank you Michael for all that you did and the example that you gave. Those of us that had the privilege of working with you over the past fifty years will miss you very much indeed” says the firm.

Michael Joyce passed away in Bath over the Christmas break; he leaves his widow Allyson, his daughters Lucy and Jessica and his granddaughter Daisy.
