Gerald Ray Gage

Article Image Alt Text

Gerald Ray Gage, 72, passed away in Austin, Texas, on March 23, 2019. His service was held at Heritage Funeral Home chapel on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, at 2:00 PM. Interment was held at Wallace Creek Cemetery.

Gerald could be viewed as a person who loved the outdoors, bird watching, searching for and collecting arrowheads and making every air show within traveling distance. If a military aircraft flew overhead you could only continue your conversation after it had left the area.

After retiring from the City of San Saba, Gerald made many trips out to the Big Bend area and to New Mexico taking in the sites by himself or with someone.

Later he spent time with his friend, Tom Allen Sloan, talking politics, solving the world’s problems and getting in the way while everyone else was working cattle.

To his immediate family, Gerald was known as Jelly Bean or Bird Man. He will be missed!

Martin Don Gray

Article Image Alt Text

Marty Gray was born May 10, 1949, to Sammye Williams Gray and Dudie Gray. He grew up on the family ranch established in the 1860’s, proud of being fifth generation of a ranching heritage. He claimed that he never wanted to be a cowboy, but as a young boy, he and his black dog roamed the pastures. He and his horse rode beyond the boundaries of the family ranch to visit neighbors who had kind words, cowboy wisdom, and cookies always waiting for him. He rodeoed in junior rodeos, he hunted, he fished, he understood livestock, and he delighted in the sight of a new Hereford calf lying on the spring-green grass. His dad said that he lost Marty as a cowboy to team sports when Marty joined a little league team at eight years old. Being a real cowboy was never lost in Marty—it was merely redefined. In later years, he called himself a country gentleman.
