Obituary for Scott C. Gray

CHESAPEAKE – Scott Coleman Gray, 86, left his earthly home for his heavenly home on January 6, 2019, surrounded by his family and others he loved. He was born in San Antonio, Texas to Marion and James A. Gray on July 17, 1932.
Scott was a proud Navy Veteran of the Korean War. He worked for the U.S. Government for 34 years, first in the Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Electronics Shop 67 and retired from NAVSEA Combat Systems ENGSTA, Norfolk, Virginia in 1987. He was then employed by Lockheed Martin in Sonar Towed Systems until he retired in 2007.

Scott was a member of Western Branch Baptist Church for over 50 years where he served as a Deacon, chairman of the Deacon Board, member and chairman of numerous committees and taught Sunday School classes for over 50 years.
He loved playing his bass fiddle with the piano every Sunday morning for many years at both Western Branch Baptist Church and at Pinecrest Baptist Church where he is currently a member. Scott also enjoyed playing for the Portsmouth Baptist Association choir, Joyful Sounds, and at many local nursing homes.

Scott was predeceased by his parents and one brother, James D. Gray. Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 63 years, Barbara Newman Gray; a son, Timothy Scott Gray (Monique) of Fredericksburg, VA; a daughter, Robin Kimberly Gray of Chesapeake, VA; extended family, Rose and Jerry Zollars of Chesapeake, VA, grandson Paul Berthault (Cory) of Fredericksburg, VA; granddaughters, Angela Zollars Stevens (James) and Candice Zollars Dubois (Jamie); and three great-grandchildren, Braden and Isabella Stevens and Delaney Berthault.

The family wishes to thank the staff and nurses at Heartland Hospice for their love and care. Also a special thank you to his long time caregiver, Misty LaRoque.

A funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, January 10, in Sturtevant Funeral Home, Portsmouth Blvd. Chapel with Rev. Reggie Hester, Rev. Tom Potter, Rev. James Newman and Rev.
