Obituary |


Our wonderful Dad, Kelly Burt McRay, age 45, passed away Sunday, April 9, 2006, in Provo. He was born Sept. 13, 1960, in Heber City, the son of John F. and Lucille Mair McRay. Kelly grew up in Heber and Lyman, Wyo., graduating from Lyman High School.

Dad was the most giving person we knew. He would give you his last dollar, or get a dollar for you if he didn’t have one. He had a good work ethic and always had to be actively engaged with either work or helping someone. He drove a truck for many years and most recently worked in Park City for Stag Lodge.

Dad loved the outdoors, especially collecting rocks. He loved to be with family, especially his kids and grandchildren. Some of his favorite pastimes were talking with family and friends, and being a "dad" to all of his kids’ friends.

He is survived by three children: Amanda (Jaramie), Sara and Jon R. McRay; numerous grandchildren; four step-children: Jason (Julie), Kelly, Patricia and Rick; sister, Patricia; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends; and "My Sweetie, Edie." He is preceded in death by both parents and one brother.

Funeral services will be held Friday, April 14, 2006, at 1 p.m. in the Heber LDS 8th Ward, 650 South Southfield Rd., Heber City. Family and friends may call on Thursday from 6-8 p.m. at Olpin-Hoopes Funeral Home, 288 North Main St., Heber City, and on Friday from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. prior to the services at the LDS Church. Interment will be in the Heber City Cemetery.
