James “Jimmy” Randall Gray, 55, of Kyle, Tx, passed away peacefully on March 28, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Jimmy fought glioblastoma multiforme (brain cancer) valiantly for 14 months.
He was born to parents Arthur H. Gray and Mai Jung Ling (Carol) on June 12, 1965, at Shaw AFB in Ft. Sumter, North Carolina. Jimmy moved around during his childhood due to his father being in the Air Force and finally settling in Virginia.
Jimmy met Sandra, the love of his life, on a blind date in Centreville, VA in February 1990. Within months they were engaged and married in June of 1991 in San Marcos. They began their life in Northern Virginia and greeted their first born, Meagan, in August 1997. Ultimately they came to Texas in the fall of 2000 and soon welcomed their son, Cameron, in October 2001. Eventually they made their home in Kyle.
Jimmy left construction with the intent to provide a better life for him and his family. He founded his IT business, CSN Support Services and successfully ran it for 20 plus years. It was through his business interactions with clients that gave people from Kyle and the surrounding communities the opportunity to meet and work with such a dynamic, charismatic and kind man. Every person Jimmy met he definitely left an everlasting impression.
During Jimmy’s illness several milestones were reached with his family. Jimmy got to see Cameron graduate from High School, Meagan graduate from the University of Oklahoma, renew his wedding vows at his 29th wedding anniversary and go to the beach - one of his favorite places!
Jimmy was an avid sportsman, beach bum and loyal fan of all sports! His favorite teams were the Patriots, the Red Sox and the Washington Caps. He was also a skilled guitar player. There was always a TV on loudly broadcasting a sports event or classic rock and roll in the background. Jimmy was Meagan’s and Cameron’s biggest fan, never missing any of their events. He was a proud father and would have been an amazing grandfather.
Jimmy is survived by his wife Sandra, daughter Meagan, son Cameron and Oreo, his faithful pooch companion, his brother Jonathan Gray, wife Suzzi,, sister, Deborah Harris, husband Fred and brother Christopher Gray, along with numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews.
Jimmy was preceded in death by parents, Arthur H. Gray and Carol Steffen.
A memorial service is planned for Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 630 pm in Kyle, Tx. Location to be determined.
