I have so many fun memories of Jay growing up. I remember when Aunt Lynn would take us all to the Pontiac Silverdome indoor carnival and Jay would ride the salt and pepper shaker over and over and over. He loved the spinny rides. I also remember him always trying to figure out how things worked. I remember him taking apart a Nintendo remote and putting it back together. I’m going to miss him and I will now always request the Chicken Dance every chance I get. Rest easy Jay you will be missed.

I fondly remember Jay at Dale Young & Son’s. He was loud and proud and if you didn’t have any quarters for the pop machine then “You’re Fired”!! He was one of a kind, and the world will never see another.
Love Uncle Kevin and Aunt Dale

I have many favorite memories of Jay, but one of my favorites is at a friends wedding we hadn’t seen him for a while and I asked if he remembered me and he said yes and I said well you didn’t even give me a kiss, and he walked away. Layer I was talking to someone at a table and suddenly I was swooped back dipped down, and got the biggest smooch of my life. It was Jay. ❤️God bless his heart ❤️ See you in heaven buddy with your mom, dad and Brian.
