Edwin Henry Bray, Jr
Birth: Nov. 27, 1924
Waterloo
Black Hawk County
Iowa, USA
Death: Feb. 21, 2010
Lakewood
Jefferson County
Colorado, USA

85, of Arvada Colorado died in hospice care from emphysema and cancer. Ed came to Colorado in early childhood with his father Edwin. Born the only son to Inez (Huckins) and Edwin Bray, Sr. He grew up with his Grandmother Florence and two, Aunts Ida and Jennie. Veteran of U.S. Navy, Married Beverly "Jean" Ferguson and together they raised five children (one of which was a set of fraternal twins). Retired from U.S. Postal Service, and his own Construction Company. Hobbies included hunting, fishing, and time with his family. Son Patrick and Jean preceded him in death.
Ed understood the value of leaving a legacy and so in 2001 he made a biography of his life for "future generations to know about him". Remember When™ created a movie to do just that, his legacy to pass from generation to generation, that really pleased him.
Ed was a level headed, easy going, had a knee-jerk sense of humor, had trouble expressing how he really felt, although when pushed, would give good advice, humble, friendly, yet quiet, never got too serious about things, always on time, doing what he set out to do. His philology was, "I did the best I could with what I had". Shared moment came when he sang "Happy Birthday-to me" with his youngest daughter's birthday just a few days before he died. Regrets, not many, I would have had more kids; he just loved the little ones. He had reached his goal at 85 on November of 2009, when asked, "how you doing Dad", his answer was always, "Fare to Midland, not bad for a guy my age".
Those left to cherish his memory include his 4 children, 6 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren, many other family members and friends.
A graveside service was held at Ft. Logan National Cemetery February 25, 2010.
