Kay was raised in Bunkerville and Logandale, Nevada. After some years of work and of college in both Nevada and Colorado, Kay settled his family down in Las Vegas, Nevada. He worked as a land surveyor and was well respected in the civil engineering community of Clark County, Nevada, even serving multiple terms in the elected position of Clark County Surveyor.
After retirement, Kay and Char moved to Hurricane. He loved horses, gardening and reading. He loved his family, and although he could seem stern at first, the older he got, the more everyone discovered just how soft his heart really was.
