Jim Gray, 68, associate senior adult minister at First Baptist Church of Woodway, near Waco, was killed Jan. 30 in a head-on crash as he drove to the church for Wednesday night services.
The accident happened a month and a day after the death of the church’s senior pastor, Mike Toby.
The other driver injured in the head-on collision just before 4 p.m. Wednesday between a Dodge pickup truck and a minivan at the intersection of Old Lorena Road and Church Road was flown to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center by helicopter, where they later died.
Gray, a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, joined the church in 1999, according to First Woodway’s website.
He is survived by his wife, Kay; sons, Richard, Steven and Michael; daughter, Linda; and grandchildren.
Pastor Mike Toby, 65, died on Dec. 29 at his home after he was diagnosed with brain cancer in October.
