Roger Laymon Gray

 

Roger Laymon Gray, 84, of Owensboro, passed away Saturday, August 26, 2023, at his home, surrounded by his children. He was born February 24, 1939, in Ohio County, to the late Everett Lamont Gray and Bonnie Ailene Trail. Roger served in the United States Army during the Vietnam era and was stationed in Lebanon and Vietnam in 1958-1959. He had been a member of the Owensboro Masonic Lodge #130 since 1968, a lifetime member of the Amvets Post #75, member of the American Legion Post #9, Ensor Lodge #729, Rizpah Shriners and was a Shriner clown.

He retired from Alcoa Aluminum after 27 years of dedicated service. Roger also enjoyed gardening and was passionate about donating dog and cat food to the animal shelter, even asking for it on his birthday so he could make another contribution.

Along with his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife, Mary Jane Hamilton Gray; a brother, Owen Dale Gray; and three children, Shirley, Susie, and Robert Gray.

Roger is survived by his two sons, Jeffrey Lee Gray (Connie) and Scott Allen Gray (Dana); two daughters, Sherry Lynn Johnson (Tommy) and Cynthia Jean Brockwell (Mike); eight grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and a sister, Carla Dawson Kamp.
