Mr. Stray was born on January 20, 1932 in Waterbury to Miles I. and Mildred Stray. He was the beloved husband of Carolee Stray who survives him.

The family would like to say a special thank you to all of Mile's aides who made it possible for us to keep him at home and who ultimately became his friends.
