A wreath sat quietly last week next to a plaque noting Sen. Elmon T. Gray’s work on behalf of the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford. The Memorial Foundation placed the wreath in his memory, following the news of Gray’s death last Tuesday.
The Memorial had lost a long-time friend.
Sen. Gray was 86.
He had succeeded his father, Garland, in the state Senate, and had served from 1971-1992.
