It is with deep regret that we report the passing of Leo R. Gray, (Lt. Col. Ret.), a Charter Member of Post 365. He was one of the last surviving original Tuskegee Airmen and a Red Tail Pilot in the State of Florida. He was well known throughout the state and country and traveled abroad telling the story of the “famed” Tuskegee Airmen of WWII.

Leo will be greatly missed and fondly remembered. Visitation will be 6:00pm – 9:00pm, Friday, October 14, 2016 at Dignity Funeral Chapel; 7701 Bailey Rd. , North Lauderdale, FL 33068.
