John Edward Gray, 79, passed away unexpectedly December 19, 2020 at Sierra Vista, Arizona. He was the husband of Barbara, who shared 57 years of marriage together. Many Lander residents will remember his passion for golf, and he served on the Lander Golf Board while living in Lander. John was noted for, and shared, his great sense of humor with all those he came in contact with.
He was a past Lander Postmaster, who worked to obtain funding, and then oversaw construction of the current Lander Wy Postal facility. Later, he was promoted to Sierra Vista, Az postmaster, and retired there after a 48 year career with the United States Postal Service.
He is survived by wife Barbara, children, Jeanette, Eric, and Michelle, grandsons Phillip, Kevin, and Tyler and his brothers Earl (Sue) and Rick.
Family and friends will be notified of future Celebration of Life arrangements.
