Jay Vincent Camberlango

Jay Vincent Camberlango was born February 14, 1977 in Price, Utah, to his parents Vinnie and Sue Camberlango. His passing occurred on June 30, 2019 near Moab, Utah, as a passenger in an airplane accident.

Jay approached each aspect of life in the same way, he attacked it with energy and determination. Those who know Jay describe him as bold, hard working, courageous, generous, strong and funny. He was able to accomplish a tremendous amount of living during his 42 years of life.

As a youth, Jay was involved in multiple sports but excelled in football. Shortly after graduating from Orem High School in 1995, Jay met the love of his life, Kimberley Anne Parry. They were sealed in marriage for time and all eternity on June 12, 1998 in the Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple. They would later have 3 beautiful daughters Lexie, Brooklynn and Khloee. His wife and daughters were the center of his life.

Jay was the proud owner of Camcrete, “The Quality Concrete Specialists.” Jay knew at an early age that he would follow in his Father’s footsteps by pursuing a career in construction. He and his Father worked side by side successfully for over 25 years. He was a relentless worker with incredible knowledge and talent within his craft.

He was an accomplished dirt bike rider and enjoyed riding with his friends and family. He and his riding buddies would refer to this time as “throttle therapy,” “hammering” and “rippin.” The outdoors was his playground and he played hard. Jay also enjoyed flying his airplane as he earned his airman’s certificate and became a private pilot.

Jay Camberlango will be deeply missed as he is survived by his wife Kim Camberlango, his daughters Lexie, Brooklynn and Khloee, his parents Vinnie and Sue, his sister Jenna, his brother Matt, his father and mother-in-law, Mike and Debi Parry, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, sister-in-laws, and brothers-in-laws.
