Grey and I graduated in ‘04 from Davidson. I remember him as a fun and funny guy. He always seemed to have people around him who were smiling and enjoying his company. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife and kids, and all those who loved him. I’m so sorry for your loss.

Grey was such a funny and fun guy to hang around. I knew him through soccer in the area. Anytime we’d hang out he was just a lot fun, funny and just SO nice to everyone. Went out of his way to say hi. Heartbreaking to hear the news. Sending lots of prayers for comfort to the family.

I’ve known Grey since he was 3 years old when he and my son, William became best friends in preschool. He was always charming and polite and I always loved having him in my house! We will miss him.
