William Lionel McKay Sr. aka Bill was born in Belize City, Belize. He is survived by his wife Marion McKay,
8 children, 12 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and a host of nieces, and nephews. Bill spent his
early years as a Marine Pilot guiding ships through the waters of Belize. The sea was his passion. He
spent more time on the water than he did on land. Later in life he migrated to Florida and developed the
skills of an electrician. Bill was a learner, he loved figuring out how things worked and honed those skills
into his favorite hobby of building boats. He would spend hours meticulously reading plans and gluing
tons of tiny pieces together to create his masterpieces. He enjoyed spending time in his back yard by the
lake with his family and friends running his boats and enjoying a drink.
