Graveside services for Paul Henry Gay, 79, of Heflin, AL will be at 1:00 PM, Tuesday, February 9, 2021, at Heflin City Cemetery with Will Payne speaking.

Paul Henry Gay, 79, died February 7, 2021, at Cleburne County Nursing Home following complications from Covid-19.

Radio or Dobber, as Paul was affectionately known, was a longtime resident of Heflin. He started working at age fourteen at J. W. Bennett Lumber Company. As an adult, he worked over thirty-five years for the City of Heflin in the Street and Water/Sewer Departments. Paul was actively involved in scouting for over thirty-five years where he served as an assistant scout master for many years. A humble, selfless man, Paul touched the lives of those who knew and worked with him, especially Boy Scouts in Heflin Troop 206. He gladly participated in scouting activities, and he made countless trips to Camp Comer Scout Reservation in Mentone, Alabama, during his tenure.

Pallbearers will be: Massey Griffin, Elis Bennett, Jonathan Fordam, Will Payne, and Jay Grubbs.

Because of Covid concerns, a graveside service for Paul Henry Gay, 79, will be at 1:00 PM, Tuesday, February 9, 2021, at Heflin City Cemetery. Plans are underway to honor Paul by Troop 206 later in the year.
