Phillip McKay Obituary

Phillip Hadley McKay "Phil" or "Phil Catdaddy" as he was teasingly called on the golf course went to be with the Lord Dec.1, 2023. 

He fought a hard battle with melanoma cancer that took him from us in 5 short weeks. Phil has lived in Woodland Park with his wife Laurie since March 2015 and loved every single day of mountain life. Snow or shine you could find Phil outside with one or two grills fired up surrounded by his pack of dogs. 

Born in Ottawa Kansas in 1952 to parents Dora and Hadley McKay, Phil also has a sister SueAnne Duerson who currently resides in Anna Texas with her husband Carl. He also has numerous nieces and nephews there. Phil attended Bay City High School in Texas and graduated in the Class of 1970. He later attended BYU and then Durham Business College in Florida. 

Phil married his wife Laurie on Dec 31, 2005 so they would always have fireworks on their anniversary. 

Phil's children include from Port St Lucie FL Tim McKay and his wife Jessica and their 3 children Timonium, Cassie and Adelina. 

From Boynton Beach FL son Phillip McKay Jr and his wife Aleesa and their children Dylan, Hannah, and Julia. 

Daughter Jessica Reinhardt and her husband Charles from Driftwood TX and grandchildren Coleman and Kendal,

Son Dustin Arnold and wife Kerri from San Antonio TX and their daughter Shyloh. 

Phil worked for City Market in Woodland Park and was part of the City Market family for 3 years. He was loved by coworkers as well as many customers that he developed bonds with.  

Phil loved playing golf, playing with his dogs, grilling anything and everything, living in the mountains and most of all he loved his family. He never met a stranger and brought light and happiness to those he touched.
