Prince Gray II
(Dec. 6, 1972-Dec.6, 2013) Prince was a man who loved family, food, friends, life and laughter. On his birthday Prince began a new chapter with his life but is survived by his mother, Mrs. Geraldine (Elton) Simpson; brothers, Ennis Massey and Roderick (DeOnna) Gray; children, Gabriel and Xaviour; cherished friend, Elaine and her daughter, Nevaeh; and last but not least five stepbrothers and three stepsisters.
Educationally, Prince was a Timken Senior High School graduate that played football for Allegheny College, majoring in Physics. Professionally, Prince worked most of his life in private security. While training to become a welder, Prince was accidentally injured and developed several health issues. Despite insults or injuries, trials and tribulations Prince persevered with a sense of humor. Our beloved son, brother, father, family member and friend will be remembered and missed. The Reed Funeral Home has been entrusted with the arrangements.
