The simple pleasures of hunting, fishing and all things outdoors brought great joy to Daray.  He had an infectious smile that would light up a room and he loved to joke around. He is affectionately known to those around him as a “loveable person with a kind heart”.

Funeral services were held Thursday, February 1, 2024 at New Life Baptist Church with Rev. Brian Gay, and Rev. Chad Payne officiating. Interment followed at Antioch Church Cemetery.  Musical selections will include, “Lead Me Home”, “Good Day To Fly” by Jordan Rowe, and “Home.” Serving as active pallbearers were Steven Purvis III, Jordan Rowe, Ricky Fender, Garrett Heard, Dalton Rentz, Tom Thomas III, Ethan Thompson, and Hunter Erskine.  The Class of 2015 served as honorary pallbearers.
