Cyril May passed peacefully from this world November 7,
2020. He was 88 years of age. Cyril was born in Dolph, AR, the
fifth of six brothers. He lost his parents at the young age of 13.
A life event that shaped him and explained the value he placed
on his home and family later in life. He lived with an older
brother and sister-in-law the remainder of his school years,
graduating from Calico Rock High School. He served his time
in the U.S. Army in Korea, returning to Arkansas to meet the
love of his life, Peggy Teegarden. They married in January of
1956. A few months later, they moved to Washington in search
of work. He began working at ALCOA and continued at the
plant for 35 years, until his retirement in 1992. His life was
defined by his hard work and he provided well for his family,
purchasing a home in East Wenatchee, WA, that he and Peggy
would remodel and improve over the years. It was a beautiful
home and property in which they took great pride. They even
planted and maintained a cherry orchard on the property for
some years. It was in this home full of love and stability, they
raised their three sons and daughter. As a father, he could be
relied on for all of life’s more trying times, a testament to what
it means to be there for his family. He was also joyful in
celebrating his children and grandchildren, with a special
fondness for the “little ones” and the fun of early childhood.
Many happy years of retirement were spent with a little bit of
travel and a whole lot of family time. Peggy would, in time,
suffer from early onset dementia, another of those defining life
events. Cyril handled it with amazing strength and character,
caring for Peggy in the family home until her passing, in 2014.
After her passing, he carried on, finding much joy in his
grandchildren in his final years.
Cyril was preceded in death by his wife of 58 years, Peggy.
He is survived by his four children: Rex May and wife, Jeanne,
Randy May and wife, Wendy, Teresa Colberg and husband,
Steve, and Ryan May and wife, Chelsea; nine grandchildren;
and five great-grandchildren.
Covid restrictions make necessary a Private Funeral Service
which will be held on Friday, November 20, 2020.
Arrangements by Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee, WA.
