Robert L. Gray, age 53 of Georgetown, Ohio passed away unexpectedly at his home Monday, April 27, 2020. He was a graduate of Western Brown High School in Mt.Orab, Ohio, a United States Army Veteran, a member of the Georgetown Masonic Lodge F&AM #72 and employed by ITW Fiberglass Evercoat for 32 years. Rob loved being outdoors and spending time with his family. You could always find him coaching his children in sports, going to the gym to stay healthy and active and working on little projects around the house. He created a back yard that was a child’s dream adventure. Many summers were spent grilling out by the pool, riding quads around the yard, tinkering with toys in the garage and building forts in the playset. Rob loved family vacations and was a big fan of Cruises. The family was saddened when they had to cancel their most recent trip to Disney. Little did he know, the memories those trips created will be some of the fondest memories his family will cherish forever. He was the rock and foundation for his family. Rob worked tirelessly to provide for them and ensure they never wanted for anything. He was a father like no other and a husband who treated his wife like a princess. No matter the crowd nor the company, Rob could strike up a conversation with anyone and always made everyone feel welcome. His life will forever leave a mark on those he touched.
