Culverhouse, Joy McCann  
CULVERHOUSE Joy McCann Culverhouse was never one to sit idly on the sidelines. She moved at lightning speed, as a pioneering athlete in women's golf, as a business woman and philanthropist, and as wife of the one-time owner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Hugh Culverhouse, Sr. Joy died peacefully in Tampa on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 after a long and distinguished life. She was 96. She was known for her endless energy, her knack for commanding a meeting and her eagle-eye focus for getting to the heart of an issue. Her small stature belied her intimidating force at a boardroom table - she has been described as tiny as a tack and sharp as a whip. Mrs. C was really a great lady. She was a treasure to us all, said Scott Lynch, a long-time employee of both Hugh Culverhouse, Sr. and Mrs. Culverhouse. Through her charitable efforts, she had such a positive impact on so many Bay area individuals and institutions. She was truly one of a kind - those who met her will not forget her. We are so thankful for having her as long as we did. Her pioneering days began early, as Joy was one of the first women to win an athletic scholarship when she started as a freshman at Louisiana State University where she played golf as the ninth player on the Tigers' men's squad. She later transferred to the University of Alabama where she played on the Crimson Tide's men's golf team. Joy received her degree in Sociology from the University of Alabama in 1942, a degree which gave her an academic background to later use in her philanthropic work. Joy went on to win the Alabama Women's State Golf Championship in 1941 and 1947 and the Florida Amateur title in 1961. She remained a strong supporter of women's golf and established women's golf scholarships at the University of South Florida and Jacksonville University, while her son established one in her honor at the University of Alabama. Joy met Hugh Culverhouse and the two married in 1942 and were married 52 years. Their business success began in Jacksonville where the couple made their home for many years and attained business success through Hugh's work as a tax attorney and their business endeavors in utility companies, oil, orange groves and real estate. Hugh Culverhouse, Sr. purchased the Tampa Bay Buccaneers franchise in 1973. The team began play in 1976 and a few years later the couple made Tampa their permanent home. Perhaps Joy's most famous contribution to the team was her color choice for the Bucs' creamsicle orange uniforms. During the years the family owned the team, Joy was the Bucs number one fan - attending games, often present on the sidelines, and championing the players through hard seasons. After the death of her husband and the sale of the team, Joy began actively managing the family's business interests as well as undertaking extensive charitable work. Her legacy includes gifts to charities and non-profits totaling millions of dollars, including gifts to universities, community programs, and women's and children's causes. More information on Joy's philanthropic efforts can be found at www.mccannfoundation.org . The family plans a private ceremony to honor Joy's lifetime. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Joy's honor to LifePath Hospice, Inc., 3010 W. Azeele St., Tampa, FL 33609, www.chaptershealth.org .
