Our hearts are saddened by Jays passing.
Many memories to share one comes to mind with his participation in the Threatre Guild.
He would always grab my face and start singing “Maria” ..ha I told him to keep practicing he still didn’t know all the words!!
He just laughed.....and said “there’s more words?”
Jays humor and generosity will be greatly missed at FSSK....
Rest In Peace my friend.....we were fortunate and blessed to have known such a beautiful individual! 🙏

I always laughed every time I was in Jay’s company. His wit was only surpassed by his kindness. Jay was always willing to help and lend a hand to everyone.

Josephine and I simply loved him and Jackie. Our lives were enriched by his friendship.

Thank you Jay, Rest In Peace
