Alexander Bannochie Gray

March 5, 1933 - July 1, 2011

Tribute

Alex passed away peacefully in hospital on July 1 with his family by his side. He was predeceased by his parents Alexander and Gladys, his brother Norman and his partner of many years Nellie. He is survived by his sons Mike and Neil (Corinna), his daughter Tracy (Dan), his ex-wife and good friend Annie McKenzie, as well as grandchildren Tanya, Steven, James, Melissa, Ross and Megan. Alex was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. He became a medical lab technician through Aberdeen University and attained a fellowship from the Medical Laboratory Association before spending two years with the Royal Air Force in Egypt. He attained a rank of Sergeant in 1966.
One day Alex read an ad in a journal, requiring a chief technician in Powell River General Hospital, and after accepting the job he and his family emigrated to Canada. After eight months they missed their homeland and returned to Scotland. After a short stay they decided to return to Powell River, where Alex began working for the Mill in 1967 in the the Technical Department, where he worked until retirement in 1992. He enjoyed spending time with his kids camping, travelling, playing pool, and watching movies. He loved having a cold beer, listening to good music, and jam sessions. He also enjoyed many years of darts and shuffleboard, and was a member of the Moose and Legion. He was a wonderful man and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Alex’s family would like to thank Dr. Rossouw, the nurses of the 4th floor, Loni, Davie, and the home care nurses. There will be no service by request. Donations may be made in Alex’s name to the BC Lung Association.
