Mr. Noah M. Gray, age 38, of Ore City, passed away on Friday, August 16, 2019 at Christus Good Shepherd Medical Center of Longview. Noah was born in Nacogdoches on Thursday, October 30, 1980. He graduated from Ore City High School in 1999, and went on to work in the family business, DeBerry Gas Company, as the shop foreman. Noah was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Ore City. His heart and soul in life was his children, his fiancé Evette, and her children whom he loved and cared for as his own.
