On August 25, 2019, Edward G. Grey, Sr. passed away at his Elephant Butte home. Ed was born in Bingham, NM on June 14, 1928. For many years, he thought the flags flying on June 14 were in honor of his birthday.

Ed is survived by his daughter, Brigitte Sutherland and his son, Edward G. Grey, Jr. Ed survived his wife of almost 68 years, Mathilde “Miss Tilli” Grey by only 2 months.

Ed and Tilli met in Salzburg, Austria almost 70 years ago, while Ed was serving in the US Army.

After his tour in the Army, Ed enrolled at NM College of A&M (NMSU) where he earned his degree in Ag. Engineering. He was hired by the Soil Conservation Service and the family moved to Albuquerque, NM where they lived until 1976. At that time, he was offered an opportunity to work in Anchorage, Alaska. Ed being the avid hunter and fisherman he was, jumped at the chance. In 2014, Ed and Tilli moved to Elephant Butte to be near their son and daughter.

Ed was a caring husband and father, who will be greatly missed…especially by his children.

Cremation has taken place and no services will be held at this time.

Edward G. Grey, Sr.
