Obituary for Kay Eyre

Kay Eyre
Kay Asay Eyre, age 63, peacefully passed away December 14, 2017 at his home in Billings with family by his side. Kay was born to Rex Ballard Eyre and Norma Asay Eyre on September 25, 1954, in Powell, WY. At the age of 5, the family moved to southern California where he grew up loving the beach and the Dodgers. As a teenager, he went to help out on his uncle's farm near Cowley, WY where he met Cindy, the love of his life and eternal sweetheart. They were married two years later in the LDS Salt Lake City Temple and just celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary.
Kay loved to be busy, whether at work, home, or serving others; time was precious to him and not to be wasted on things that didn't matter. He was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served faithfully in many callings, touching countless lives with his testimony of Jesus Christ.
He started a small business in his garage 24 years ago, which grew to be a family business, The Countertoppers. Thousands of homes in Montana and Wyoming have been touched by his craftmanship.
As vital as working and business were to Kay, nothing was more important to him than his faith and his family. He is survived by his loving wife, Cindy; by daughter Amy (Melvin) Ewing of Missoula and children, Jillian (Logan) Reid, Stirling, Emillie, and Aillie; son Lee (Sarah) of St. George, UT, and children Kole, Kylar, Kody, Isabella, Lexie, Justice, and Quest; daughter Colette (Stanford) Hanson of Billings, and children Chandler, Caiden, Sophie, Carson, and Benton; daughter Lindsey (David) Mecham of Rexburg, ID and children Emma, Jase, Hanna, and Olivia; son Richard (Alicia) of Billings and boys Roman, Joel, Rhys, and Riley. He loved being a grandpa, loving each grandchild unconditionally, and they, in turn, adored him. He is also survived by his sister, Adele (Richard) Bingham, brother Von (Marte) Eyre and sister in law, Elma Eyre, many nieces and nephews, as well as other extended family. He loved each of you!
Though our hearts are saddened at his passing, we rejoice in knowing we can be together again as a family. It brings comfort to know he was greeted by those who have gone before: his parents, brothers Donald and Duane, sister in law Carolyn, and twin grandsons, Jackson and Jason, along with countless others who love him.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff at Billings Clinic and Riverstone Hospice for their kindness and compassionate care.
Visitation will be Friday, December 29 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at Smith Funeral Chapel downtown. Funeral services will be Saturday, December 30 at 10:00 a.m.at the LDS church located at 1000 Wicks Lane, with burial following at the Cowley, WY cemetery.
