In memory or Gerry Grayson, Gerry was a very genuine , honest and loyal to the heart kind of man. He loved his family and boy he could talk.
Gerry had no problem telling how it is straight and to the point.
I met Gerry at a small Barbershop in Harrison Twp. He sat in my chair and said now I’m going to trust you, and from that moment I became his Barber and Gerry my regular client.
Gerry followed me for years and felt most comfortable gracing me with his presence at my home for a haircut a couple cups of Coffee. And a lifetime of story’s.
Gerry fly high now you will surely be missed.
Sincerely,
Your special Barber and friend.
Bobbie

Dr Grayson, you were the best dad ever! I remember the trips up north to Canada Creek Ranch and Mexico to Cancun and Cozumel and the flights where you were the pilot. You also had an enormous garden and fruit trees with a bountiful harvest every year. You were a wonderful Dentist for 30 years. I will miss your weekly phone calls and friendship. Rest in peace dad!

The loss of a parent is indescribable, particularly one with a presence the size of Grizz's. He raised an amazing son and friend and I will be forever grateful for his part in that. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Never was there a encounter with “griz” that either started or ended without laughter and most days he looked at me and started chuckling. A incredible outdoors man And a true economist
