Gerald "Bull" Gray

Gerald (Bull) Gray, born on July 2, 1946, in McNairy County, TN, was a beloved son of the late William (Jack) Curtis and Thankful Elizabeth Treece Gray. He passed away on October 13, 2023, in Adamsville, Tennessee at the age of 77 Years, 3 Months, 11 Days.

Gerald married the love of his life, Erline McDaniel, on September 25, 1970. He bravely served our country during the Vietnam War and always carried his faith with him. Gerald's commitment to living for Christ was evident throughout his daily life. He found solace and community as a member of Good Hope Baptist Church.

Known for his charisma and loving personality, Gerald had a remarkable ability to draw friends into deep and meaningful conversations that lasted for hours. Toddlers felt at ease in his presence and often found comfort cuddling up in his lap for naps. A warm smile was a constant feature on his face, and he possessed an exceptional talent for seeing the best in everyone.

Gerald had a passion for outdoor activities such as fishing, camping, boating, and watching NASCAR. These pursuits allowed him to connect with nature while creating cherished memories with loved ones.

In business dealings and personal relationships alike, Gerald earned respect through exemplifying virtues such as honesty, fairness, kindness, and humility. Alongside his brother Dale, he successfully owned and operated Gray Bros from 1992 until his retirement in 2006.
