Obituary

Michael James 'Jim' McKay died on December 31, 2016 at the age of 52. Born to James McKay and the late Bonita (Hale) McKay in Marlborough, Connecticut he was a graduate of Rham High School.

He is survived by Mary M. Williamson, his wife of 21 years; daughters, Shannon L. and Megan M. McKay, all of Shrewsbury; his father, James M. McKay; his siblings, Scott McKay and Michelle McKay; nephews and many dear friends.

Jim attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute where he was a member of Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity and later received a degree in mechanical engineering from Northeastern University and his MBA from Nichols College. He worked at Digital/Intel Corporation for over 28 years.

A talented athlete, Jim excelled as a varsity baseball player and wrestler and was a member of the class A national championship softball team and an avid golfer.

If there was an activity that needed a planner, Jim was the 'go-to' guy, whether it be a chili cook off, memorial golf tournament, the annual neighborhood touch football game or an event for co-workers. He coached his daughters' softball and basketball teams and volunteers wherever he was needed. A genuine good guy Jim was always available to family and friend without pretense of fanfare.
