Sadly, Monsignor Gray, after a couple of years suffering through various ailments, died on July 27th, 1957. He never got to see the full impact of his dream. Monsignor Gray was buried in the St. Joseph Cemetery in Baraboo, WI. Fr. Vincent Browne succeeded Monsignor Gray as Camp Director, and soon thereafter, the camp was officially named Camp Gray to honor Monsignor Gray.
