James Carroll "Bo" Bray of Panama City passed away Wednesday, May 22, 2013.  He was born December 15, 1935 in Panama City.  He married the former Linda Gail Pyle in 1955, and after several years in Germany, where he served in the US Army, the couple made their home in Port St. Joe and then Panama City.  Bo enjoyed his family, golf, and fishing.  He is fondly remembered for welcoming anyone into his home, his ability to make the most mundane subjects funny, and laughter that was so outrageous you had no other choice, but to join in.

Bo was preceded in death by his wife, Linda Pyle Bray, his parents Basil Whitmire Patrick Bray and Mary Carroll Bray.

He is survived by his daughter, Mary Margaret Madden, son-in-law Don, grandsons Andrew Bracy and Owen Madden; his son, David Bray, daughter-in-law Lisa, grandchildren, Austin, Patrick, Alexandra and Riley Bray.

Graveside services will be held Sunday, May 26, 2013 at 2:00 PM at Holly Hill Cemetery in Port St. Joe.

All services are under the direction of Comforter Funeral Home.
