__________________________________________________________________________
Kevin Doyle McCoy, 57, of Orem, passed away in the early morning of May 18, 2021, after a nearly two-year battle with cancer. Although we grieve his passing, which came sooner than expected, we remember Kevin as we hope he would want us to: as a loving husband and father, a proud girl-dad and funpa (fun grandpa), and a peaceable follower of Christ.

Kevin was a man of few words, but he expressed his love for others through constant service: mowing lawns, plowing snow on the neighborhood sidewalks, baking cinnamon roll wreaths for friends and neighbors at Christmas and bread nearly every other week of the year, and many other acts we will remember and miss him for. We will try to keep up Kevin’s standard of care in the yard and for his many houseplants.

We remember Kevin’s sense of humor from shared viewings of Monty Python and the six-hour A&E Pride and Prejudice, as well as in his response to any mention of the number 11 with the movie quote “our amps go to 11.” He loved actor Cary Grant and was very proud of his ever-growing collection of Grant’s movies.

Kevin never missed a ward choir practice if it was in his power to go, once even continuing his walk there after a fall on an icy sidewalk, then walking home - he later found out he had broken his leg. He also enjoyed daily bike rides and annual hikes of Mt. Timpanogos every August until his health prevented them.

A self-taught computer programmer and Apple fan, Kevin left his undergraduate studies at BYU to work for WordPerfect and followed the word processing program to Novell and Corel. Other jobs included Jostens Learning, Intel, and AccessData. He rode his motorcycle to work at AccessData whenever there wasn’t snow on the ground.

Kevin was born September 19, 1963 in Provo, Utah to John Ray and Maurine (Jensen) McCoy. He served in the Portugal Lisbon Mission (1982-1984). After a marriage, two daughters, and a divorce, Kevin married his eternal sweetheart Dana Sue Thomson on January 27, 1996 in the San Diego Temple and had two more daughters with her.

He is survived by his wife, Dana; daughters Heather McCoy, Kaitlyn (Nicholas) Polansky, Megan (Jordan) Reitz, and Riley McCoy; granddaughter Alina Polansky; siblings Lynette McCoy, Diane McCoy, Mary Lynn (Bart) Schaerrer, John T. McCoy, and Karen (Brian) Clothier; four nieces, and one nephew.

Funeral Services will be Friday May 21, 2021 at 11:00 am in the Northridge 3rd Ward 1674 North 200 West, Orem. Friends may visit with the family on Thursday May 20, 2021 from 6:00-8:00 pm or Friday May 21, 2021 from 9:30-10:30 am both at the church. Interment will be in the Orem City Cemetery. Condolences may be offered online at www.walkersanderson.com and to view the live webcast

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages memorial donations be made to the Humanitarian Fund or Missionary Fund of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

I have worked with Kevin at AccessData for the past 9 years. He always had a smile and was always so kind. He loved to talk about his family and it was obvious how much he loved and adored them. The entire AccessData family is saddened by his passing. That empty chair will always remind us of a kind man who worked hard and left a mark on all of our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.

Kevin is one of my very oldest friends. I've known him for 37 years. We've played D&D together those 37 years, but our friendship was more than just that. We talked and shared dreams. He is truly a good person who loved his family dearly. He will be sorely missed. My thoughts and love are with Dana and with his daughters and his little grand-daughter. I'm so glad he got to meet her.

Rest well, Kevin. We'll meet again some day.
