Hendersonville attorney Tom E. Gray died on May 26 at the age of 77. A native of Shelbyville, Gray earned his law degree from the Nashville YMCA Law School. Prior to practicing, he began his career as a teacher and eventually served as dean at Martin Methodist College and Volunteer State Community College. In 1980, he began practicing law until 1982 when he became judge for the Family Court for Sumner County. In 1986, he became Chancellor for the 18th Judicial District and served until his retirement in 2014. Visitation with the family will be held Thursday from 4 to 8 p.m. at First United Methodist Church of Hendersonville and again on Friday at 11 a.m. A funeral service will follow at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations to be made to the Volunteer State Community College Foundation in Gallatin, or the Gallatin Noon Rotary Foundation Christmas for Kids in Gallatin.
