November 27, 1940 — November 3, 2015

Robert William McGray, 74, of Breckenridge, MN, passed away on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, at Sanford Hospital in Fargo, ND. "I'm at peace and my soul is not searching for happiness because I'm already there. If you hear I have passed on, have a party in celebration of life! Remember I didn't give up, but we all need to rest at some point. If you awake and I am no longer here I have taken Christ's invitation to come home."
The visitation for Bob will be from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, November 6, at Joseph Vertin & Sons Funeral Home in Breckenridge. The visitation will continue from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m., on Saturday, November 7, at Breckenridge Lutheran Church, followed by an 11:00 a.m. funeral service. Because of Bob's love for hunting and the outdoors, the family welcomes guests to come to the visitation in their hunting attire. Pastor Mark Manning will be officiating. The interment will be at Riverside Cemetery in Breckenridge.
