Daniel Gray

July 5, 1943 — April 17, 2020

Daniel Burton Gray Sr. of York Valley, AZ passed away on April 17, 2020. Daniel was born on July 5, 1943, in Washington, Pennsylvania to Henry Leslie Gray & Edith Mae Harkins Gray.

The couple married in 1965 and raised six children in Southeastern Arizona. Daniel had a long career as a skilled tradesman. He was a Journeyman Electrician through the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, certified welder, HVAC technician, and commercial semi-truck driver. He acquired many skills including automotive, carpentry, and electronics in which he used to help anyone in need.
