May 18 , 1953  -  January 30, 2017

David Eugene Gray, 63, was born on May 18, 1953 to David and Barbara Gray in Emporia, Kansas. He was the middle child of three children. David was baptized in Jesus’ name at an early age and accepted Christ. He graduated from Westport High School.

David worked for Blue Cross, the Civic Center Bank, Sears Roebuck & Company. For over fifteen years, he was employed with Penn Valley Community College as the District Administrator of Mail.

David enjoyed life and never met a stranger. In his spare time, he enjoyed hanging out with his friends playing cards and dominoes. Football was his favorite sport to watch. He especially loved listening to music -  he had a special collection of albums; a massive collection of 45’s and CD’s. On any given day, you could drive by his house, stand on his porch and not only hear the music, but feel the vibration from his loud music. Lifting weights was another of his hobbies.

He departed this life on Monday, January 30, 2017 at his home. His father, David Gray preceded him in death.

He leaves to cherish his memory his  mother, Barbara Gilroy, KCKS; a sister, Martha Lou Williams, Dallas, TX; a brother, Michael Lewis Gray; step sister, Beverly Davis Moore, KCKS; step brother, Ira (Tamara) Gilroy, Jr., Orlando, FL; five nephews, three nieces, and a host of other loved ones and friends.

David will truly be missed by all...
