Gerald Deane Gray "Bunk" passed away on February 09, 2020, in Little Rock, Arkansas at the age of 70.

Jerry was born on October 6, 1949, in Wabash, Indiana to his mother, Lula Mae Ward. He was a Vietnam veteran in the United States Army. He worked until his passing for Rolling Hills Country Club in Cabot. He married Shelby Loftis on December 31, 1988. They were married until her passing on November 16, 2019. He enjoyed helping people fix their small engines, enjoyed riding his Harley, and restoring his 1971 Dodge Demon. He held a special place in his heart for his family, and would have given the shirt off his back to anyone in need.

He leaves to cherish his memory, three daughters, Melanie Melgaard of Rice Lake, Wisconsin; Jeri Opland (Al) of Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Keya Justice of Warsau, Indiana; five grandchildren, Danielle, Chloe, Mason, Ryan and Dawson; two great-grandchildren, Sterling Nevin and Addison; his fur baby, Spike; two sisters, Vicki King (Bob) of Port Charlotte, Florida; and Barbara Green (Roy) of Austin, Arkansas; as well as many nieces, nephews, other family members and friends.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Shelby Gray; his mother, Lula Mae Ward; daughter, Lori England; two brothers, Bill Evans and Junior Applegate; one sister, Margie Tolley; Son-in-law, Ken Melgaard and Grandson, Nevin Melgaard who was his Junior Constable and riding partner #1104x.
