Mr. Charles D. Gray

November 25, 1945 — October 20, 2021

Charles Gray, born November 25, 1945, in Maryville, Tennessee, passed away on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, surrounded by his family. He was a loving husband, an amazing father, and the world’s best Papaw. He provided a wonderful example to everyone— to family and others whose paths he crossed— and had a tremendous impact on all our lives. He was a godly man and is now with our Creator in Heaven. We are better for having him in our lives and grateful for the guidance he provided. A graduate of Everett High School, he served honorably in the United States Air Force. He then majored in Ornamental Horticulture and Landscape Design and graduated in 1974 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture from the University of Tennessee. Charles was preceded in death by his parents, Asbury and Walcie; brother Wayne, who died in service to his country; and brothers Wilburn, Eugene, and Clarence. He is survived by his beloved wife of nearly 52 years, Brenda; children, Stephen (Jennifer), Robert (Kelly), April, and Sidney (Emily); grandchildren, Connor, Carson, Kaylee (Aaron), Conner, Caden, Abbey, Jacob, Luke, and Claire; sisters Carolyn and Judy (Coley); and numerous friends and family members, all of whom meant so much to him. Family will receive friends 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday, October 23, 2021, at Greenback church of Christ followed by a memorial service, with Jonathan Wheeler officiating.
