Gregory McCray Obituary

Gregory McCray was born May 21st, 1956, to the late Joseph and Mildred McCray. He graduated from Conway High School in 1973.

He leaves to cherish his memories his four children, Terrance Mishoe, Tyrone McCray, Pamela McCray, and Gregory M. McCray Jr. Four beautiful grandchildren Braxton Mishoe, Terrance Mishoe Jr., Jayla A. McCray, and Zion L. Sparks. Two Loving Sisters, Andrea, (Leonard) Chatman and Felease Cutner. Two siblings who preceded him in death, Kathy McCray, and brother Ivory Joe McCray. Two loving aunt’s, Helen (Doc) Hunt, Jesse (Lonzell) Mishoe and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. 

After graduation in 73’ he lived in Chicago for several years, He tried out for the Chicago bulls and later played for the Semi-Pro Lake Region Cougars.

Joseph, his father, broke ground with the family business and paved the way for Greg to eventually take over and continue the legacy, but it didn’t stop there. He worked for Palmetto Paving for 15 years. Later, in life Greg revisited a passion he once had when he was 10 years old. Unlimitedly, he was dubbed the name “Shoe-Shine”. Greg created a name for his self, not only in the Bucksport Community but the Conway-Myrtle Beach area. Greg was able to tap into a niche that most people would have never gained an interest. Shining shoes was his passion however, fishing was his ultimate hobby.

Greg had a love for creating smiles and touching hearts. To know him was truly to love him.

“I just called to see how you was percolating”- One of his favorite lines when he called. 

Quiet and Greg never truly existed in the same room. Greg was big on getting his point across! He enjoyed a good time and was never shy about meeting a friend along the way.

All these qualities helped us build memories of this man whom we loved and will miss dearly!
