FRIENDSHIP - Brother, son, cousin, uncle and friend. There are not enough words to describe what Robert meant to his family and friends. He brought laughter and life to all who knew him. He was loved by many and will be greatly missed. Robert Philip Gray, 53, left this world, Wednesday, March 27, 2019 following a period of declining health.

Robert was born to Lloyd and Barbara on February 1, 1966. He grew up with his brother and three sisters in Friendship. He attended Friendship Village School and AD Gray Junior High School. In 1984, he went on to graduate from Medomak Valley High School, where he excelled at baseball and wrestling. He then studied automotive at the University of Maine at Presque Isle.

Robert worked many jobs, from welding, bouncer, carpentry and sternman. He was passionate about the ocean and enjoyed scalloping with his brother. His other passions included singing, fishing, playing the harmonica, and comedy.

“There are always new places to go fishing. For any fisherman, there's always a new place, always a new horizon.” May you rest in peace, Robert, at your newest fishing hole.

He was a member of Knights of Pythias 102 in Thomaston and the Elks Lodge in Rockland.

Surviving are his parents; his siblings, Lloyd Jr., Lori, Amy, and Melanie; nephews, Chris, Russell, Conner, Nicholas, and Ned; niece Alicia; great-nieces, Alivia and Abby; many cousins; and long-time friends, Eric Mecklin, Mike Jameson, Henry Thompson, Gorden Simmons, Debbie Feyler, Carl Pitcher, Karl Murphy, Larry Nystrom, and many, many more. If you owned a couch, Robert probably slept on it. Predeceased was Robert’s nephew Ethan.

The family would like to invite family and friends to a celebration of Robert’s life at the Hahn Community Center in Friendship, on Friday, April 12, 2019, beginning at 4:00 pm. Please call Viola at 832-7712 if you want to help with preparations for this occasion.

Committal will be May 18, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at Harbor Cemetery in Friendship.

I lost touch with Robert over the last few years, but everytime I ran into him it just reminded me of the times I had with him back in high school early on. Sometimes I would go a year without seeing him and all of a sudden there he was. It was always fun catching up with Rob when we ran into one another. He was always in a good mood, and always treated everyone great. My condolences to his family. RIP Rob

I didn't know Robert for very long, but when I met him it was like I'd known him forever. What a great guy! I loved making him soups to eat and he loved eating them, I think. He was a gentle giant and he will truly be missed.
