Mr. Gray was the father of Brett Gray ('87) and served our community at the Allsup's in Tuscola for 33 years.

Robert Gray

Tuscola, TX

Robert Lee Gray, born December 28, 1942, answered his call to come to his eternal resting place on September 20, 2018, where he joined his parents Cleburne and Vada Gray and his younger brother C.T. Gray. We can only imagine what a reunion that was!

Robert married the love of his life, Charlene Cary, December 18, 1960. They moved several times throughout Texas until finally settling in Tuscola, where they raised their son, Brett Gray.

Robert was a service manager at Rocket Oldsmobile for many years, until the business closed. He was a faithful employee at Allsup's Convenience Store in Tuscola for 33 years. He was known and loved by everyone in the community. He was a hard worker and always did whatever it took to take care of his family.

Robert was an avid hunter and fisherman, and always told great tales about "the ones that got away". He was a fierce competitor in the sport of Wahoo, and he never took mercy on anyone. He loved a cold Keystone Light, but most of all, he loved his wife, his son, and their cat Rocky.

Robert is survived by his wife, Charlene Gray, son, Brett Gray, two grandchildren Ethan and Hannah Gray, brothers Kenneth Gray and wife Nancy, and Weldon "Shorty" Gray, many nieces, nephews, and other family and friends.

Graveside services will be held Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at 1:30 PM in the Tuscola Cemetery, directed by Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola.

Sarah Denis Aldridge Hastings

November 5, 1955 - September 15, 2018


ABILENE: Sarah Denise Hastings, 62, peacefully passed away Saturday evening, September 15th, 2018. She was a compassionate woman who served her family and friends graciously her entire life.

Sarah was the youngest of three born to Amos and Dorothy Aldridge. She graduated second in her class at Jim Ned in Tuscola, where she met her husband of 40 years, Leland. She went on to graduate from Angelo State University, pursuing a career in elementary education, teaching at Anson and Wylie elementary schools. Sarah chose to take a break from teaching to be a homemaker and a mother, two positions in life she deemed an honor. She cherished her two children and happily devoted her days to educating and nurturing them. Later in life, she returned to Jim Ned where she used her gift of teaching in Early Childhood.

Life handed Sarah many trials, but she endured each one with grace and steadfast strength. She touched many lives and will be remembered for her unwavering faith, her servant’s heart, and the genuine kindness she shared with all.

Sarah is survived by her husband Leland Hastings; mother Dorothy Aldridge; son Brent Hastings and wife Melanie; daughter Megan Hastings; grandson Hunter Hastings; sister Pam Guffey and husband Joe; brother Lanny Aldridge and wife Sherry; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

Funeral Service will take place on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at the Lawn Baptist Church at 10AM. Graveside services to follow, directed by Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Sarah’s memory to Pregnancy Resources of Abilene, 2110 N. Willis, Abilene, TX 79603 or to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, P.O. Box 4527, New York, NY 10163.
