James Richard ‘Jim’ Gray passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 at the age of 77.
He was the beloved husband of Sharon and proud and loving father of Sandi.
Jim was born in Toronto and following his education spent 25 years in sales in the automotive aftermarket, travelling across Canada, living in Ontario, Alberta and the beautiful Okanagan Valley, B.C.. Returning to Meaford in the mid 80’s, Jim and Sharon embarked on careers in Real Estate, opening offices in Meaford and Thornbury known as Royal LePage Locations North. His draw to Meaford was his grandfather, S. A. Gray, who had been Mayor in the early 1920’s and operated a millinery store.
Jim will be remembered for his quick wit, wicked sense of humour, and he loved spending time with his old friends and meeting new. He very much enjoyed time spent in Florida with family and friends along with fishing and golfing.
A special thanks to the many healthcare providers who cared for Jim with great compassion. We are so grateful to you all.
