Mr. Gray was born March 15, 1951, in Borger, to John and Wilda Gray. Harold worked last as a measurements engineer with Alyeska Pipeline Co. in Valdez, Ala. Many times Harold told of the beauty of Alaska, the great fishing, many, many friends he made there. These wonderful people became like family to him and kept the long winters filled with great stories and strong friendships only an Alaskan can understand. Harold had a sweet little guy with him that gave unconditional love; his name was Govenor, an English bulldog, nicknamed “Govy.”

He was preceded in death by his parents.
