Robert Alvin "Bob" Gray, 79, was born Oct. 26, 1932, in Fort Scott, Kan., the son of Alvin B and Bertha Opal (Graves) Gray.

He passed away April 24, 2012, at his home in Yukon.

In 1965, Bob and his family moved to Yukon from Wichita, Kan. He was a flight engineer and flight line mechanic with the United States Air Force during the Korean War era.

He was preceded in death by his parents, an infant sister and son, Gary Robert Gray.
