GRAY- Brent Leigh

July 16, 1959 – August 24, 2013

Brent Gray, a very talented drummer and golf professional passed away peacefully at home with his wife Christine and daughter Cassandra (Marsh) by his side.

Brent was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta where he developed his love of music and golf. As a percussionist he played with the Edmonton youth orchestra and was the drummer in numerous bands. Upon joining his family in Trail he was a member of the Maple Leaf Band, Rossland Light Opera and Emerson. As a golf professional he was an exceptional player, instructor and manager. In both of his career choices the people who knew him could see his passion, ability and knowledge.

Brent’s real love was for his family and friends. Brent did not need to talk of love with those he held dear- he showed it in every encounter.

Brent is now with his parents Norma and Glenn (Betty) Gray. Christine and Cassie will mourn his loss and celebrate his life along with his sister Sharron (Doug) Humford, his niece Brandy, his brother Glenn, step-son Richard Marsh, grandchildren Connor and Oliver and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Brent’s family would like to thank Dr. Andrea Jenkins who supported and cared for Brent with compassion and understanding throughout his battle; Dr. Scotland and the wonderful and dedicated staff in oncology; the community nurses, home care staff and the Greater Trail Hospice Society.

Please join Christine and Cassie in remembering Brent on Saturday, September 7th, 2013 from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm at the MacIntyre Room at the Cominco Arena. Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with the arrangements.
