Kenneth Wayne Gray passed away at home on August 8, 2016. Wayne was born, in Midland City, Alabama, in 1947 to Will and Mary Pridgen Gray. He met and married the love of his life, Nelda Merritt 41 years ago. They had 4 children Paul, Pat, Wayne and Linda. Wayne retired from Lance, Inc. and began his own tree service business; Gray’s Tree Service. He was a self – made, independent, hard-working man, who stayed true to his word.

His survivors include his sons Wayne Shipes, Pat Farmer, Sr and his wife Kala, daughter, Linda, as well as many beautiful and loving grandchildren: Kimberly Farmer Miller, (Joey Miller), Pat Farmer Jr.(Bubba), Cameron Farmer, Summer and Cecily Shipes, and Trace McMillan. And four great grandchildren: Rayna, Waylon and Maisyn Miller, and Logan McMillan. Also left behind are his sisters Betty, Darlene and Patricia. He is preceded in death by his wife Nelda Gray and his son Paul Gray, as well as his siblings Billy, Larry, and Judy. In lieu of flowers please send donations to E.T.
