David Gray

David Nelson Gray was called home to his eternal rest with Jesus on Sunday, July 9, 2017.

He was born in Lewiston, N.Y. on July 3, 1946, and graduated from Niagara Wheatfield High School and Rochester Institute of Technology where he majored in photography.

His travels led him to Alabama where he met his life companion, Sandy, on a blind date. They made their way to California, and moved to Mariposa in 1988 where they enjoyed a simple, country life.

He retired in 2012 and fully immersed himself in serving the Lord and sharing Jesus with international students.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Sandy; sons Jason (Stephanie), Matthew (Kue), Jennie Dahman (Nathaniel) and Jonathan; and five grandchildren, Abigail, Emily, Uriah, Shalom, and Johanna. He is also survived by his sister Phyllis Linnebur (Alan) of Mariposa.

A memorial service will be held at New Life Christian Fellowship, 5089 Cole Road, Mariposa on Sunday, August 13, 2017 at 2:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, Dave would have appreciated donations to Sandy Gray-International Student Ministries in care of P.O. Box 5008-178, Mariposa, CA 95338.

He is already missed by many.
