Obituary of Robert M. Gray

Robert M. Gray passed away suddenly on Tuesday, May 11, 2021.  He was 66 years old. Bob was born in Newark, NJ, raised in Union, NJ and lived in Millington, NJ for the last 26 years. 

Bob graduated from Kean University in Union, NJ with a B.A. in Industrial Arts Education and an M.A. in Educational Administration and Supervision.  He began his career at Elizabeth High School and Plainfield High School, before spending 30 years in various administrative roles at Passaic County Technical Institute.

Bob was a loving husband, father and Pop-Pop. He is survived by his wife, Kathy; his son Josh and wife Katie, his son Matt and wife Lauren, and his daughter Jessica; his 3 grandchildren, Lucy, Marlee and Ryan; and his best friend—his dog Maggie.  He is also survived by his brother, Benjamin Gray.

He was predeceased by his mother, Shirley Gray, father, Bernard Gray, and sister, Lisa Hollerbach.

Bob treasured time spent with friends and family, both in New Jersey and Murrell’s Inlet, South Carolina.  He was an avid golfer, loved to cook and could fix anything.  He also loved a good mid-afternoon nap on the couch.
