I will miss Jay’s sarcastic wit and all the smiles and laughs we used to have at the office (Mooney Copy Service). He was stubborn at times, but fun to tease. He was a great businessman and was not afraid to take on a challenge. He talked about and loved his family especially his grandkids a lot!! He always had stories to tell. Thank you Janet for your hospitality any time I came over to help him with his computer issues. I know you will miss him greatly. There were times he felt like family, thank you for sharing him with his friends and business acquaintances. Rest in Peace Jay Titus.
Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss….our thoughts are with your family during this difficult time. Jay will remain in our hearts forever.
