Obituaries » Frederick Milton Kay

Frederick Milton Kay, 68, of Remington, passed away peacefully in his sleep on August 22, 2017, in his home.

He was born August 9, 1949, in Lynchburg, to the late Elizabeth Anne Wells and Milton Garber Kay.

Mr. Kay was very active in his community as the registrar and parish administrator at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Remington and as the secretary for the Piedmont Railroaders. Prior to retirement in 1992, he worked for the Bell Atlantic Telephone Co. in public relations. It was largely with his efforts in lobbying for the handicapped that telephone booths were lowered for wheelchair access and the hearing-impaired button for the deaf, before he himself was disabled in 1991. 

Always dependable and helpful, Mr. Kay often donated his time to his friends, family, community and to multiple charities and local organizations. He was extremely generous to everyone. One of his passions was in making jewelry and giving it to his family and friends. He became GIA certified and loved to create beautiful pieces that would put smiles on their faces. He believed that it would help them feel happy and confident when wearing it.

Mr. Kay had a wonderfully wicked sense of humor and enjoyed teasing and pestering those he loved. You knew you were loved when he tickled you. He enjoyed cooking and was locally celebrated for his homemade spaghetti sauce, crab stuffed mushrooms and salads. An avid reader, he enjoyed historical fiction, fantasy, and science fiction books. He also adored vegetable and rose gardening and traveling around the country. His most favorite pastime though was spending time with his family.

He is survived by one younger brother, William Jackson Kay; three daughters, Kimberly Susan Kay Langtry, Patricia Anne Cooper and Deborah Kay Reece; five grandchildren, Travis James Langtry, Logan Victor Langtry, Joseph William Cooper, Rachel Susanna Reece, and Frederick Dean Reece, and a great grandson, Caleb James Langtry.  

A memorial service took place Sunday, August 27, at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Remington.

Memorial contributions may be made to Piedmont Railroaders, c/o Treasurer Tony Tripi 7342 Woodstone Court, Warrenton, Va. 20187.
