Jay H. Hornbeak, passed away at his home in Duvall, Washington, at the age of 48.

Jay was raised in Bellevue, Washington and grew up, working in the family business of Hornbeak Irrigation. Later on, Jay worked for the City of Shoreline Parks Department, an employment where he would remain for 20 years.

His favorite activities revolved around being with friends and family. He loved making people smile and getting a big laugh with loved ones. He enjoyed traveling, entertaining, cooking and long hours shopping to perfect his secret recipes.

The beginning of October was a special time as he loaded up "The Bird Van" and headed east to visit family and chase pheasants in North Dakota.

Jay has joined his father, Jay P. Hornbeak, in passing and is survived by his mother, Sharon K. Hornbeak, in Bellevue, Washington; his brother, Bryan Hornbeak, Bryan’s wife, Shelli Hornbeak, and Bryan’s son, Isaac Hornbeak, in Tillamook, Oregon; the love of his life, Shelly Loynes; and Jay’s children from a previous marriage, Carl and KayeLynn Hess.

Shelly and I met Jay on July 4th which is totally perfect for these two. They were in love the day they met. Jay was one of the best people I have ever met & my world will not be the same ever again. Love & light to his family & friends ❤🌹

My husband, Rick Bobillot, was Jay's Father's best friend until his untimely passing in 2002. So Rick knew JJ & Bryan since they were kids. Wonderful times! Jay Sr. deeply loved his boys and was so proud of the big-hearted men they had become. No child should lose their Father when in their late 20's / early 30's, but both JJ & Bryan stepped up to help their Mom, Grandmother, and the family business. Now we are grieving the sudden passing of a young man & father. Reading the condolences is surreal, especially the lovely note from Shelly Loynes... our hearts break for you. Not being there for Shelly, Bryan, Shelli, and Sharon is so dismaying for us... you are family. Please know we treasure the fond memories... for Rick, it's a lifetime of stories and laughter.

With heartfelt Sympathy,
Rick & Kathi Bobillot

Jay, I will always cherish all of our fun memories and adventures. You always knew how to put a smile on anyone’s face. You cared so deeply for Olivia, and I and that is what I loved the most about you. You will forever be in our hearts.❤️
Love you forever, Kendall.

Well,I certainly didn’t think this would happen with all the love that showed between Jay and Shelly last summer when they were home in Crosby .. Both of them had a glow and were a good fit for each other... We loved our family out west and were so excited every time they came back...I’m going to miss Jay not coming to see us again, but I will never forget how much fun he was, his politeness, and his genuine love of people...his family, friends, young and old...I am also greatful that we got to meet the love of his life in Shelly...May you know Shelly we love you with all our hearts forever.....Hugs ♥️ ♥️

Jay was my everything he filled my life with so much joy and laughter . He was very romantic and brought me flowers every week since the day we met . I was attracted to him not only by his handsomeness but by how he cared for his mother his grandmother and also his kids, since I had children of my own those were all amazing traits in a man to me and that he easily made me laugh meant that I hit the jackpot when I met him. One of my favorite memories was walking into our local Safeway store , there was an elderly couple walking in just ahead of us holding hands and I said that’s the kind of couple I want to be when I grow old ! I can tell you there was never a day that we walked into any store that Jay did not hold my hand as we walked inside . I love and miss you so terribly bad my life will be forever changed without you but I will always be thankful for every beautiful memory I have with you ! Till we meet again I love you forever . Shelly❤️

Jay,
I so wish I could have known you better before you left. What I do know was every time I was ever in a gathering with you there was always a smile on your face and the love that you and Shelly shared for each other was not only seen but felt. A wonderful, kind,fun and loving man gone way too soon and I know you will be so missed💗

Dearest Jay,
You were always the first to shower a beautiful smile accompanied with a genuine hello to me. Your kindness and generous heart came naturally. What a contagious gift. You were quick to put a smile on Shelly’s face. I always love hearing Shelly’s laugh, you are the master of laughter.
Thank you for continuing to be our guide on how to live this life with kindness, generosity and laughter. I know your not far and are still here to help all of us. 💕💙💕
