Walter Jasper "Jack" Gray

December 1, 1921 ~ May 17, 2019 (age 97)




Walter Jasper “Jack” Gray, 97, returned to his Heavenly Father on Friday, May 17th, 2019. His devotion to his family and the gospel of Jesus Christ were sustaining factors in his life.


Jasper was born to the late Walter Jarvis and Susan Alice (Jackson) Gray in Kinston, NC on December 1st, 1921.


“Jack” will be remembered by many as a long-time textile foreman, but those blessed to spend much time with him will speak of his love for his church, the Woodington Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. His smile lit up the room, while his strong will could move mountains. If the outfield lights at Grainger Stadium were on you could often find him intently watching his beloved baseball. 


Jasper is survived by his wife, Stella; children, Maxine (Bobby) Jackson, Forrest (Sandra) Gray, Susan (Leroy) Stroud, Andra Gray and Galen Gray, and step-daughter Felicia (Jeff) Hussey; as well as 10 grandchildren, and 21 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild.


Visitation will be Sunday, May 19th, 2019, 5PM-7PM at Pink Hill Funeral Home and funeral services will be Monday, May 20th, 11 AM at the Woodington Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  Burial will follow at Pinelawn Memorial Park.
