It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gregory Dane Gray on June 12, 2023.
Dane is survived by his partner in crime of 50 years, Camille, his two children, and four grandchildren.
Dane was raised in Philadelphia, MS by a single mother who taught him the fierce love of Jesus Christ – which became the guidepost for how he lived his life. He married his school bus crush and moved to Vicksburg, MS where he retired after 35 years of service with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Post retirement, he was able to further pursue his many passions and interests. When he wasn’t riding his Harley, he could be found jumping into a pool with his grandchildren: Ashlyn, Camilla, Penelope, and Otto; strolling a car show with his son Chad, or generously handing out quiet wisdom to his daughter Dana.
Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 15, 2023, at Glenwood Funeral Home. A graveside service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday at New Blackjack Baptist Church Cemetery, on Oswalt Road in Philadelphia, MS.
Pallbearers will be Robert Barnett, Chad Gray, Dale Gray, Glen Cook, Andy Smith and Chris Mackie.
In lieu of flowers, please don’t park too close – he hated that. *
