George Gray Passes Away

    George Dale Gray, 96, of Berlin and formerly of Annapolis, died January 15 at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin.
    He was born on February 6, 1916 in Bluefield, WV. At the age of 12, George helped workers build the Hoover Dam by carrying pails of water. As a hard worker, he purchased his first car, a 1926 Model T Ford, at the age of 13. His career started as a truck driver for Silver Hill Sand and Gravel Company. He retired as shop foreman in 1977 after 33 years of service. George had a natural talent for gardening. The beauty of his flower gardens inspired many, and were enjoyed by all. George loved his family, and most enjoyed being a husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great-grandfather.
