Burial will be in Pine Hill Cemetery, Davenport. The family will greet friends 10-11 a.m. Thursday. Pastor Dave Revelle will celebrate the service.

Jay died Sunday, June 16, 2013, at his residence in Davenport following a courageous battle with cancer.

Jay Christopher Pribble was born Jan. 23, 1971, a son of Donald E. and Deborah K. (Williams) Pribble. He graduated with honors from West High School Class of 1988; he received his associate degree from Scott Community College where he was on the Dean’s List.

He had been employed at WJM Plastics and Uncle Bill’s Pizza most recently. Jay was a trivia whiz, winning a trip to the Super Bowl and a large screen television at trivia nights. He was a movie and history buff, and an avid sports fan. He was a very independent, never asking anything from anyone; he was a compassionate and caring person, with a golden heart.

Those left to cherish his memory include his mother, Debbie and Everett Strawhacker; his father, Don Pribble; brothers, Terry Pribble, Chad Strawhacker and Todd Strawhacker, all of Davenport; a sister, Chris Kane, Cambridge, Ill.; nephews, Cody Pribble, Zach Pribble and Ryan Strawhacker, all of Davenport, and Trevor Kane, Travis Kane, and T.J. Kane, all of Cambridge; his grandmother, Bobbie Dhaemers, Sun City, Ariz.; and aunts, uncles, cousins and good friends.
