- About Us
Our beloved brother, uncle and friend, Jay Boyd England, passed away peacefully on March 22, 2019. He was born on February 7, 1947 in Tooele, Utah to Boyd and Gayle England.
Jay exemplified kindness and good will towards others. He loved easily and people loved him in return. Jay was a true friend - he was able to make lifelong friends wherever he went. This earned him the well- deserved nickname; “Jay Buddy.”
In his younger years, Jay was named as an honorary Tooele Volunteer Firefighter-a title he held proudly. When there was a fire, Jay arrived quickly on his bike. Oftentimes to the amazement of the fire crews, he beat them to the scene.
Jay loved football and collecting football cards. His favorite teams were the Green Bay Packers, Utah Utes and BYU Cougars.
We’d like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for the wonderful team at RISE for their friendship and care of Jay over the years. Special thanks to Paula, Talena, Daphne and many other remarkable aids.
Jay is survived by sisters; JoAnne (Gordon) Smith and Vikki England, many loving nieces, nephews, and friends. He was preceded in death by his devoted parents, brother Steve and grandparents Joe and Agnes England and Joe and Mary Fairbourne.
We will miss our, “Jay Buddy,” but we’re comforted knowing that he is now reunited with his beloved mother and father.
A graveside will be held on Friday, March 29th, 2019 at 12:00pm at the Tooele City Cemetery. An informal visitation will be held prior from 10:30 to 11:45am at Tate Mortuary, 110 South Main St. Tooele, Utah.
