William “Bill” Judson Gray, 92, of Ten Broeck Center in Lake Katrine, NY went to be with his Eternal Father on Monday May 11, 2020.
Bill was born at home in Glenford, NY and was the son of the late Hazel (Moore) Gray and the late Arthur S. Gray. He graduated from Kingston High School in 1947 with perfect attendance for all four years. Bill was a U. S. Army veteran and was stationed in Germany during the Korean War. When Bill was young, he worked for a well driller, then for a machine shop, and he worked on guidance systems for early missiles. He later retired from IBM in Kingston, NY as a Mechanical Engineer. He was a very active member of the Glenford/Reservoir United Methodist Churches.
Bill had many interests and hobbies including golfing, camping, putting puzzles together, and flying RC planes. He was a volunteer for the P.E.T. (Personal Energy Transporters) Project which would help victims of land mines gain mobility in Third World countries. He was a “Mr. Fix-It” and was always there to help people.
Bill is survived by his wife of 62 years, Linda (Marlatt) Gray, daughter Eileen (Gray) Krick, son in-law William “Bill” Krick, Jr., grandson William Krick III, granddaughter Kirsten Krick, and extended relatives and friends.
