Donald Norman Gay Obituary
Gay, Donald Norman
83, of Peoria, Arizona passed away on March 28, 2016, because he was done living his dash. He was born on October 25, 1932 to Elizabeth Kountz and Norman Gay who precede him in death along with his step-father, Fred Kountz. Don was a native of Arizona who loved his wife of 65 years, Dora Gay, sister, Peggy Kountz, five kids (Bill Gay, Don Gay, Merrinda Trindle, Glinda Aschenbrenner, and Sherylann Grossman) and their spouses, 18 grandkids, 19 great grandkids, extended family, and most people he met. Don worked for over 45 years at a local dairy, and he had a paper route with the Arizona Republic for many years. He liked the weather and watching the Weather Channel, decorating for Christmas with his wife Dora at their home in Peoria, and at the Los Abrigados Resort in Sedona, making homemade ice cream on the back patio, gardening, eating cherry tomatoes off of the vine, the Dallas Cowboys, NASCAR, cowboy hats, bolo ties, and Ford pick-up trucks. A mass with intentions was held at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church on April 17, 2016 followed by a Celebration of Life where friends and family shared their memories of Don. His family is the greatest legacy.
