Kevin Gracey

Obituary of Kevin Paul Gracey

Please share a memory of Kevin to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Kevin P. Gracey, age 66 of Ubly, went Peacefully to his Heavenly home on Monday, May 20,2024 Kevin and God blessed his Wife and children, whom he loved dearly, with two extra years of his life with only 15 percent heart function, which was a miracle in itself.

Kevin was born in Bad Axe to the late Roland & Genevieve Gracey on September 27, 1957 and graduated from Ubly Community School. In April of 1991 Kevin married Diane (Gorkowski—Smalley) at the Log Cabin Church in Bad Axe, MI recently celebrating 33 years. Together they raised four children.

Through the years Kevin worked at factories in Deckerville and Elkton. Then went onto Gettles Car Dealership in Bad Axe, UPS, Ubly Community School as Janitor, Smigielski Funeral Home, then United States Postal Service for 18 years until May 26, 2022 when he suffered Sudden Cardiac Death. Kevin was the proud owner and operator of Gracey's Wash & Wax Auto detailing business since the 80's along with Diane's help.

Kevin loved anything sports and was involved in announcing sports activities at the Ubly Schools for many years. It didn't matter if it was girls or boys, football, basketball or golf. He would talk sports often to his two younger children and friends alike. HE LOVED IT!

Kevin is survived by his loving wife Diane, whom was his rock especially these past 2 years always telling him to slow down. His Daughter Jessica Gracey of McKinney, Texas, Son, Nicholas “Nick” Gracey of Mount Pleasant, and Step-Son, Nathan Smalley of Long Beach, CA Kevin was preceded in death by his Step-Daughter, Amber Smalley in February of 2022. Also Surviving Kevin is His One Very Special (and dear to him) Granddaughter, Calissa Smalley of McKinney, Texas. His “special brother” Mike Rutkowski of Ubly, nieces, nephews, special friends and family. Per Kevin's wish Cremation has taken place and NO services will be held at this time.

Diane and her children would like to thank God and the Toni & Trish House of Auburn MI for the last 6 days of Kevin's life: for the most caring, comforting and compassionate care that Kevin could have received. He will be greatly missed.
