Kirk R. MacKay
Kirk R. MacKay is a second generation funeral director with Memorial Mortuaries and Cemeteries after following in his father’s footsteps, who was a funeral director for 54 years. From this background he has had the opportunity to participate in virtually every aspect of Funeral Service; beginning in his youth (7 years old) to the present. Kirk has had the privilege of serving thousands of families in the area and multiple generations. Serving Utah families is a passion and a life quest for him. This experience of serving families has brought tremendous peace, empathy and compassion in his life and helped him to discover those things that matter most in life. Kirk received his Mortuary Science degree from the California College of Mortuary Science, in Cypress, California and studied Biology and Chemistry at the University of Utah. Born in California, but, raised in Holladay, Kirk is the second of six sons. His family owned a number of local Mortuaries and Cemeteries and in 1991 they chose to join forces with Memorial Mortuaries and Cemeteries, thus enabling Utah’s communities to have many more of the best options and locations to meet their family’s needs.
