Just this morning, I learned of Jay's passing. My sympathy to the family. Jay will be missed by many. I was always glad to Jay and Connie at Shrine events. They always had a smile and kind words for all. Jay and my mother (Anna Lee Davenport) were the last of that generation.

I'm so sad to hear of Jay's passing, he was the absolute sweetest man ever. He was always such a help to me at the funeral home..
He even taught Danny and I to dance for our wedding first dance back in 2005. He had an infectious smile and a laugh to fill a room.
Rest easy my friend.
Deepest condolences to the family.

Jay was such a fixture at the Overland Park Lodge and a mentor to me that he will truly be missed. Whither it was just a handshake or one of his verbal barbs, we all knew his affection for all his brothers. His energy and foresight helped put his lodge on the solid foundation that is today. I sincerely hope that we get the chance to give him the honors he is so justly due.

Jay was one of the nicest men I had the honor of knowing. He will be greatly missed, but he is now with Connie.

Over the span of many years, it was a privilege to work with Jay. He was a true Ambassador for McGilley & Hoge. His smile made everyone feel welcome. Jay knew just about everyone in Overland Park and if he didn't know you at first, he made a point of getting acquainted.

And, oh how Jay loved the KU Jayhawks! We lovingly nicknamed him "Jaybird". When KU won the championship in 2008, we all celebrated with him. He was a true, blue fan, and I know he will be cheering the Hawks to more championships from above. Sincerest sympathy to Dick and Mike's families. Your Mom and Dad were so dear to us.

Great and wonderful memories of Jay and Connie down at the lake of the Ozarks. Vera Louise and Earl, uncle Bob and Pleda, Mike and Dick. I will never forget those days with all of you. Very special days. I love my grandma and grandpa Page and all the Myers. God bless you Jay Myers and God bless your service in the Korean War. You and my father were together in the fighter squadron bitter birds. A very fine and glorified unit out of Olathe Kansas. You will be missed by all the Pages.
