DECATUR, Ala. (WZDX) - Family, friends, and the community came together Sunday to honor the life of Simeon Gray at Macedonia Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
Gray drowned Wednesday in Spring Creek while he was fishing. Rescuers recovered his body Friday.
Eric Gray, Simeon's cousin, said "I really believe he had great things in store for his life. He was doing great things. He was going to graduate in June with his physical therapy degree, then transfer to Tennessee State and continue with that. I know he could have done great things for our community. He had a great background and support system. It's sad he didn't get a chance to fulfill that. But, we will never forget him. We love him."
Gray was known as a humble, kind-hearted young man. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
