A Man That Touched The Lives Of All – Ray Gravell

Without question, one of Wales’ greatest ever characters now. And forevermore was the enigma from Mynydd-y-Garreg, Ray Gravell. He was a man that touched the lives of all who had the privilege of meeting him. With his innocent excitement and genuine interest making everyone in his presence feel special.

He Made People Laugh Out Loud

Even though we lost Ray over ten years ago. I have noticed how he is still a topic of conversation when I meet and chat with people over the length and breadth of Wales. And as we chat about him. Without fail. Everyone has a ‘Gray tale’ or two. Some that make us laugh out loud. Some that make us admire the man even more than we already did. And also some that bring a lump to the throat.
