GEORGETOWN, Del. - Dennis Dale Gray, age 60, of Georgetown, DE passed away on March 11, 2013, in the loving care of his family and the caregivers of the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford, DE. Born in Chester, PA on July 18, 1952, he was the son of the late Paul and Elizabeth Alice Berger Gray. Dennis was a beloved figure in his family, was a widower, having been preceded by his beloved wife, Rachel Whaley Gray in 2004. He was a carpenter, working in construction with the John L. Briggs Company. He loved entertaining, and loved dancing, in fact – he was "internationally known on the dance floor" – at least according to him, as he'd laugh and be quick to tell everyone about it. His constant riding companion was "Cow-Cow" – a beloved canine friend.
He is survived by two sisters:
Elizabeth Grant, and husband Jerry, of Philadelphia, PA; Kathy Deacon, and
husband Bob, of New Jersey; and a brother: Donald Gray, Sr. of Bishopville, MD. He was preceded by four siblings: Sandra

Jr.; Eugene Jarvis; Chris Jarvis; Dale Gray; Christopher Davis; Brian Davis;
