We Love you Grandpa...Bye for now!

Wayne Golden Peay
1930 ~ 2010
After recently celebrating his 80th birthday and 60th wedding anniversary with his eternal sweetheart, Wayne Golden Peay, of Lindon passed away unexpectedly on October 19 after an accidental fall.
Wayne was born August 17, 1930 in Pleasant Grove to Golden Beal and Estella Johnson Peay. He lived in Pleasant Grove and Lindon his entire life. He married his eternal sweetheart, Geraldine Adamson on September 27, 1950 in the Salt Lake Temple.
Wayne served in the U. S. Army during the Korean conflict. After returning home, he worked for Utah Power & Light and retired after 38 years of service. Wayne and Geri served several missions for the LDS Church in Winter Quarters, Cove Fort, and 9 years at the Bishops Storehouse. He was a faithful and devoted member of the LDS Church, serving in many stake and ward callings throughout his life. One of his greatest joys was traveling with the Good Sam's Club where he made many life-long devoted friends. Wayne loved the gospel, his family and friends. He always had time to serve a friend or talk with a stranger who then became a new friend.
He loved to ride horses in American Fork Canyon, where he spent many years working for his grandfather when he was young. His greatest love and joy was his family including his 3 children, 10 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. Each one had a personal relationship with him. He taught them correct principles and lived by them. He was always an example of love, faith, commitment and service and his life radiated the gospel of Jesus Christ.
He is survived by his eternal sweetheart Geraldine; his three children: Cheri Hansen, Lindon; Connie (Mike) Marchbanks, Lindon; and Kevin (Cindy) Peay, Centerville. He will especially be missed by his grandchildren and his great grandchildren who he adored.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, October 23 at 1:00 pm in the Lindon 5th Ward LDS chapel, 610 W 100 S, Lindon. Friends may call Friday evening from 6-8 pm at the Olpin Family Mortuary, 494 S. 300 E., Pleasant Grove and at the church on Saturday one hour prior to services. Interment will be in the Pleasant Grove City Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.olpinmortuary.com.

Wayne Golden Peay is a man marked with truly unique talents and gifts.  His greatest asset has been his love of my mother and  his 3 children along with the far reaching impact he has had on the lives of others.  Simple put, he loves people and has done everything in his power to serve them.  He has been a true mentor, father, coach, and friend.  He will be greatly missed!  

Wayne Golden Peay passed October 19, 2010 at 7:20 pm with all us in the room due to complications of a fall / fainting spell on Monday.  He hit his head on the cement which cracked his skull and caused severe trauma to the brain.  Even after a 5 hour surgery, the damage was to far reaching that the bleeding to the brain would not stop.  Eventually as you can imagine, it slowly shuts the body down.  It took him 12 hrs after life support was removed, for this process to finish.  The doctors told us it would be with in an hour or two at the most, but not for the tough 80 year old cowboy who lungs, heart and mind were so strong that it extended this process substantially. Needless to say, he never made it out of here alive, but he did make it out of here with honor, integrity, hard work and kindness!  His legacy has been etched!  His presence is forever felt!  Our mother is in reasonable health, but as many of you know, this takes its toll emotionally and often physically on a lonely companion.  In a blessing given to mother last night, she was strengthened to stand, lead and be supported as the Matriarch of the Peay family.  I have faith and confidence that she will do so and be cradled and supported by my father and other angels and ancestors assigned to attend to us.  Once again, thank you for your support, love and unwavering dedication to the CAUSE OF TRUTH!

Bye for now Dad and Grandpa! We love you!
