Our dear brother Bobby passed peacefully while sitting in the sun and enjoying a beautiful day. Bobby and his loving wife, Elaine spent many years as a service-missionaries serving in The LDS Addiction Recovery Program. He was influential in establishing a safe place where anyone can find acceptance, compassion, help, support, truth, and healing. He always invited people to join recovery groups. Addiction Recovery Program meetings are places for healing, people don’t judge or stare. Bobby welcomed and supported many individuals through the recovery process. Countless families have found hope as he has helped their family members. He wrote The Unseen Enemy, as an autobiographical account of his road to recovery holding to the iron rod of the Book of Mormon. He also was a major contributor to the Addiction Recovery Workbook. He was survived by his family members, his mother, Helen H. The LDS Family Services Addiction Recovery Program gave meaning to my life. Gray, Michael (Katherine), and Steven (Rachel), and Linda Gray, and Susie (Steve) Knott; and his grandchildren. He left the care of his best friend, Patch to his sister Linda. He was preceded in death by his father; Robert Mack Gray and his beloved wife, Elaine, and his nephew, Christopher Gray.

I met Bob at his house while buying flags. As i was leaving he came running out and said that he felt inspired to give me his book. He said that he did not know why, but i needed that book. (we had discussed nothing about my family). I had a son that was struggling with alcohol and i was afraid that i would loose him. Bob was an answer to so many prayers. It confirmed to me that my father in heaven had heard my prayers and that he did care. I am forever grateful to Bob and my Father in Heaven. After Bob walked away i sat in my truck and cried. My son is sober now and i am blessed to enjoy his company.
