Gerald Raland Kay

February 24, 2017

Gerald “Gee” Kay, 63, passed away peacefully at his home in Kirby, WY on February 24, 2017 surrounded by his family.

Gerald was born in Riverton, Wyoming on February 11, 1954 to Dale R. and Clara Belle (Barr) Kay. He received his education in Gering, Nebraska. He always loved the water and growing up spent many hours at the local YMCA. Later in life he went frequently to the mineral hot springs in Thermopolis. He also enjoyed fishing, snorkeling, bowling and gardening. He liked going to the Colorado Rockies games and watching the Green Bay Packers. He loved many genres of music, including Pink Floyd (attending some of their concerts), Jim Croce, Garth Brooks and Zac Brown.

He was a carpenter by trade. He could build just about anything with a circular saw and hammer. He was very meticulous in his work and was the happiest when working on one of his many projects.

His work as an insurance adjuster allowed him to travel throughout the United States. He lived in Nebraska, North Dakota and Minnesota before returning to Wyoming.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents.

Gerald is survived by his wife, Cathy, parents, Dale and Clara Kay of Riverton, his children from his first marriage, Noah (Denise) Kay and their children, Myles and Quinn of Lincoln, Nebraska; Anna Kay of Lakewood, Colorado, and Adam Kay of Rapid City, South Dakota; stepchildren: Margaret (Jason) Remerowski and their children Ethan and Ella from Ivanhoe, Minnesota and Blanche Froelich who attends Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine; brothers: Dennis (Susan) Kay of Gering, Nebraska and Allen (Judy) Kay of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin and numerous nieces and nephews. Gerald also leaves behind his bowling family at Hurricane Lanes.

Memorial services will be held 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at the Bryant Funeral Home Chapel in Worland. Immediately following the services, a luncheon will be held at Hurricane Lanes. All his friends are welcome to join the family celebrate his life. Online condolences may be made at
