GRAY, Dr. Edward ‘Leighton’

December 31, 1926 — June 26, 2015

Born in Nelson, BC on December 31st 1926 passed away peacefully, with a smile on his face and his family at his side in Kelowna on Friday, June 26, 2015 at the age of 88.  Leighton is survived by his beautiful and loving wife Beverly, of 65 years; children: Gerry Gray of Armstrong, Doug Gray (Dinie) of Kelowna, Cindy (John Bachelder) of Kelowna, Rob (Darlene) Gray of Surrey, Steve (Angela) Gray of Kelowna; 10 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. Leighton was predeceased by his brother Claire Gray.  Leighton moved to Kelowna as a young child where he ultimately raised his family and served the community as a well-respected chiropractor for 35 years, many of those years in practice with his father, Dr. Ross Edward Gray.  Leighton was an avid fisherman, musician and an active member of the church (Gideons) who loved to travel with his family during the summer months or just ‘hang out’ at the pool or spend time in the garden, with pets always close at hand.  Leighton, and his affectionate smile, will be deeply missed by family, friends and the caring staff at Three Links Manor, where he resided the past 10 years.  There will be a private family Interment held at the Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery, followed by a memorial reception at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Rd. Kelowna on Monday July 6th from 10:30 – 11:30 am.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.  For those wishing to send a condolence or share memories may do so on the Springfield Funeral Home website ‘www.springfieldfuneralhome.com’.

    Hi Bev
    I was very sorry and saddened to hear of your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time. I often recall our neighbourly chats with you and Leighton. It was great to have you as neighbours on Scott Crescent.
    Take care of yourself. Jenny
