George was a fun loving charmer with a dazzling smile. He was devoted to his family and always generous with his time and energy. His devotion to his church began as an altar boy and continued through his life, serving in many capacities, including parish council president and the Order of AHEPA until he was overtaken by ill health in recent years. George lost some of his sparkle when, in 1998 he lost his beloved wife of 36 years, Athanasia Revelis Bay. Also preceeding him in death were his parents, Michael and Bertha Bay and his grandparents, Alex and Katherine Kanakares.

George is survived by his twin brother, Alex M. Bay (Mary), his daughters Kev Wilcoxson (Gary), and Catherine Maline-Schuh (Jon); eight grandchildren: Jessica Albright (Jake), Erica Boyce, Kahlan Wilcoxson, Jacque Maline, Joshua Wilcoxson, LCPL Ryan Maline, USMC, Megan Wilcoxson, Hallie Wilcoxson, three little great-granddaughters: Clarissa, Anabelle, and Baileigh, nephews and nieces Michael A. Bay, William and Ellen Dowd, Michael M. and Anna Bay, and sister-in-law, Maria Dowd.

The son of Greek immigrants, George and his family lived in the melting pot of immigrants in the Armourdale section of Kansas City Kansas until the devastating flood of 1951. Having lost everything, the family moved to Kansas City, MO, where George graduated from Westport High School. As a teenager, George's first job was delivering papers twice daily for the Kansas City Star. George served in the USMC and went on to work many years for George K. Baum, & Co., later for TWA, and retired from American Airlines.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to St. Dionysios Greek Orthodox Church.
