Nicholas D. McKay Sr. Obituary
McKay, Nicholas D. Sr.
93 of Phoenix, passed away on November 15, 2014. Dads favorite sayings were "With hopes and dreams everything is possible" and "Mind over Matter, if you don't mind it won't matter".
Dad blessed a room or a handshake with his class, smile and God given heart to help people around him. Big shoes are left to fill as a great loving father, uncle, and friend to many.
He was the inventor of the adhesive tape lint roller way back in 1956. So many have been touched and blessed by his success. There is no way to fill these shoes. Walking beside or behind him is a great achievement. Although his passing is recent, he will always be terribly missed. His smile and love is now remembered by his family, friends employees and everyone else he helped. Never taking anything, always giving.
Good for you Lord to have this champion in your kingdom. Like dad said "With hopes and dreams everything is possible". God bless our Dad. We are so lucky to have shared his life.
The Lord and our dad are very lucky that they are finally together in Heaven. That's a team we would love to be part of.
Nicholas was preceded in death by his wife Helen, his parents, a sister, and four brothers. He is survived by his children, Nancy McKay, Bill McKay (Jill), Nick McKay Jr. (Lisa) and his grandchildren, Billy McKay Jr., Nicholas McKay, Ryan McKay, and Sophie McKay. A visitation will be held at AL Moore Grimshaw Mortuary, 710 W. Bethany Home Rd. Phoenix 85013 on Friday November 21 from 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM.
