RYE BEACH - Frederick Scarborough Gray, III "Trip", born in Portsmouth, N.H., on March 3, 1968, passed away on Monday, May 14, 2018.

Trip was an entrepreneur, game slayer and white knight to his friends and family. The way he lived was writing his own rules and paving his own way. If you said he couldn't do it, he would prove you wrong with his intelligence, infectious smile, and intense sense of humor. His ocean blue eyes are enough to make anyone fall in love.

Trip, a graduate of Portsmouth High School, and Captain of the Football team then went on to Plymouth State College, graduating with his B.A. Degree.

Plymouth State is where Trip's entrepreneurship came to life. Some of his many creations were "Freddie's Fried Dough" and printing T-shirts in his dorm room. This would then lead to his business venture and the birth of Rocky Coast Printworks in 1990.

Trip married the love of his life, Stacy, in July of 2012. Their love for each other was undeniable and an inspiration to everyone around them. One of their favorite places to travel was the Island of St. John, USVI, making "Love City" their second home.

Trip is survived by his beloved wife Stacy Gray and daughter Alexcia Saunders; his father Frederick S. Gray Jr. "Ted"; his mother Rochelle Harmon; brother Justin and wife Jodi Gray along with their children Mason, Sara and godson Evan.
