Donald Dean Gray
3/11/1968 – 3/28/2013
“A Smile To Remember”
ELLSWORTH — Donald Dean Gray was granted his angel wings on March 28, 2013, age 45. His final days were spent surrounded by his friends at Union River Estates, Ellsworth, who Donald had touched in some small way throughout his short, yet very memorable life.
Donald’s life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His huge smile brought so much joy to his friends and family. Although he was very quiet he gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. He loved to go for walks, biking, collect model cars and boats and collect lighthouses and American flag theme collectibles. He could spend hours with his close friend, Patrick, at Union River Estates and at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church mowing the lawns and landscaping.
Donald was predeceased by his mother, Carole Jane Spear, and father, Carlton Donald Gray. Survived by his brother, Paul Gray and his wife, Kim Gray, of Sunshine; his brother, Carl Gray and Helen Eaton of Sedgwick; brother, Stanley Spear of Rockland; nephew, Chris Gray and Hannah Eaton of Sunshine; and two nieces, Leighia and Stella Gray.
Funeral arrangements are being made by Acadia Burial & Cremation Direct and will be announced at a later date.
