Charles Gray, CPF, formerly the co-owner with his wife Fran Gray, MCPF, of Roney’s Creative Picture Framing and Gallery in Florence, S.C., died May 18 at the age of 68.

Charles and Fran, who survives her husband, bought the business in 1995. Charles handled the business side, while Fran designed custom frames and mats. The two were long time members of PPFA before retirement, and Fran served as PPFA president in 2008. The two were passionate supporters of PPFA and regular attendees of the annual PPFA Convention and the WCAF Expo, where they would volunteer at many events including the competition and certification events.

Prayers to Fran and family. Charles was a wonderful person and will be missed
