Born August 23, 1943 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Mr. McKay was the son of the late Forrest and Edith Ellen Scott McKay. Terry was always a hard worker and was never afraid to tackle a new challenge. As a youngster he was the first and perhaps the only newspaper delivery boy to have 3 routes to be delivered in Winnipeg before he went to school each morning. He was never one to turn down an invitation for some fun. He always had a job after school and on weekends. He served in the Canadian Militia. When he finished school he went to work at Dominion Bridge in Winnipeg, Canada until 1974. He then transferred to Varco Pruden Buildings in the United States. He and his wife Beth were married just before leaving Canada and they were married for 46 years. They enjoyed living in North Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Arkansas and Georgia. Terry always loved the South and he and Beth moved to Eufaula where he joined American Buildings Company. He was very committed to his work and enjoyed 35 years in the metal building industry. He loved to play golf when he could. He enjoyed keeping his garden and yard in tip top shape. He loved his family and their extended family. His daughter was his shining star.
Survivors include his wife: Beth McKay of Eufaula, Alabama; 1 daughter: Dierdre (Robert) Fox of Chantilly, Virginia; 2 brothers: Don (Anne) McKay of British Columbia, Canada and Jack (Pat) McKay of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
