Obituary for Gregory Dean Lay

Gregory Dean Lay, born April 5, 1968, lost his long battle with cancer, August 2, 2019, at 51years old, at the home of his dear friends Shane and Jennifer Chandler, surrounded by his closest friend Nayna Salmon. According to his wishes, he will be cremated under the services of Scoggins Funeral Home in Van Alsytne. No funeral services are planned at this time. A memorial is currently being planned for a future date.

He is survived by mother, Arlena Lay, Waco; sister, April (Scott) Adams, Sherman; and grandmother, Betsy Frix, many other aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews and beloved friends. He was preceded in death by father, Gerald Lay and grandparents, Bill and Mary Lay and Forrest Frix.

Greg had many facets to his life including the ability to make friends with everyone he met, with many of these friends remaining extremely close to him throughout his life. Although too numerous to mention, he loved them all. He had an enormous wealth of knowledge and thoroughly enjoyed a fine cigar and the camaraderie of the many friendships he made during his career working at a cigar lounge.

Greg was never one to conform to the “norms” of this world and his friends loved him for that. He was a kind, strong, friend, willing to do what was needed to help, always there in a time of need. He was that one true friend and confidant we all aspire to be. He will be greatly missed.
