Robert Gary Gray

October 28, 1961 ~ June 10, 2018 (age 56)

Robert Gary Gray, age 56, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, June 10, 2018 at Saratoga Hospital surrounded by his family.

He was born on October 28, 1961 in Norway, Maine, the son of Hazel Toothaker Gray and the late Gary R. Gray. 

Robert spent a majority of his life on the open road. Learning to drive truck while in the Army, he then went on to drive everything from commercial rigs to shipping horses all over New England. When Robert was not driving truck, he found time for his true passion of racing harness horses. A tradition that his father past onto him and then he past to his children. Robert cared deeply about the horses in his care, but always made time for those that needed a hand at the racetrack. Robert was a man who was selfless, he gave much to his work, to his family and friends. Robert was deeply loved by his pets who always greeted him with hugs and kisses. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his beloved wife Sheryl Gray; daughters, Dawn Gray, Mikayla Gray; son Zackary Gray; sisters, Patricia Mandeville (Scott), JoAnn Nichols (Butch); brother, John Gray (Omar Vazquez); mother-in-law, Patricia Phipps; devoted friend Jim Nickerson (Heidi), along with many nieces, nephews and friends who will miss him dearly.
