Bud McKay passed away on April 10, 2023, at home in Balfour, BC. He was born on April 25, 1941, to William and Blanche McKay (McLain) in Nelson, BC.
Bud is survived by his son, Clayton McKay (Charlene) and grandchildren, Cassie and Carissa, as well as his former spouse Valerie McKay (Davidson), nieces and nephews. Bud was predeceased by his sons, William and Edward McKay, his parents, 2 brothers (Malcolm and Ellis) and sister (Shirley).
Bud was a lifelong resident of Balfour and was known to entertain friends and family by playing a tune on his guitar and hosting dinners for special occasions. For many years, you could find Bud pulling wrenches in the shop or swapping jokes and stories while enjoying a pint at the local pub. More recently, he spent his time quietly enjoying his farm.
He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him, and the family would like to thank Nathan McBride for all his support.
