Troy Dean Gray, 45, of Fairlee, Vt., took his own life on Aug. 13, 2013 at his residence in Fairlee, Vt.

Born in Lebanon, N.H. on Oct. 24, 1967, he was the son of Herbert and Rebecca (Beede) Gray.

He married Rhonda Gravel Gray on Feb. 14, 2009 in Fairlee, Vt.

He worked as an auctioneer for his family's business, C.W. Gray & Sons, Inc., for 28 years. Troy especially liked his work at one of the family businesses, Connecticut Valley Auto Auction. He thoroughly enjoyed working with all of the car dealers, employees and had often reported, "...I love my job."

Troy was well known as an avid racing enthusiast. He won multiple track championships at Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford, Vt. He also competed at Claremont Speedway and won a championship at Thunder Road. He also enjoyed buying and selling equipment, cars of any type, hunting and the outdoors.

Troy is survived by his children, Brittany Gray and Brandon Gray; his stepchildren, Cassondra Gray, Mariah Gray, Christopher Hay and Taylour Hay; his brother, Timothy Gray and his wife Loretta; and his parents, Herbert and Rebecca Gray; as well as nieces, nephews and his extended family.
