ZEBULON – Gerald “Jerry” Eugene Gray, 83, passed away on Tuesday, September 20. He was born in Lamar (Prowers Co.), Colorado on March 20, 1939, to the late Frieda Gray. Jerry served our country honorably and faithfully, retiring after 20 years of service in the United States Navy.

His legacy will live on in the memories of those he loved and who loved him.
