Caley Neil McCay, 43, passed away on June 5, 2016 due to natural causes.

Caley was born on March 3, 1973 in Tacoma, Wash. to Rick and Jean (Martinsen) McCay. Two years later Caley became a big brother for the first time when his sister Tatra was born. The family then moved and lived throughout Southeast AK before eventually making their permanent home in Petersburg.

After the family settled in Petersburg, Caley would become a big brother eight more times upon the adoption of his younger brothers and sisters. Caley loved being a big brother and had many fond memories of working, hunting and fishing with his siblings.

Caley was a lifelong fisherman, both commercially and for sport. He worked for many years with his father Rick aboard the F/V Rosie M doing various fisheries before becoming the owner and operator of his own gillnet vessel, the F/V Nina Marie.

The two happiest days of Caley's life were the days that his children, Alan Neil and Nina Marie, were born. He loved his children more than anything in the world and never missed an opportunity to tell others how proud of them he was.

One of Caley's favorite things to do was to referee Petersburg Vikings basketball games, especially when his son Alan was playing.

Caley is survived by his parents, Rick and Jean, his son, Alan, his daughter, Nina, his sisters Tatra, Tyna and Tamera, and his brothers Camden, Daniel, Trevor, Ashon, Kelsey and Kayin. He is also survived by three nieces, one nephew and numerous other family members and friends throughout Southeast Alaska.

A memorial service for Caley will be held on Tues., June 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sons of Norway Hall.
