Carlos T. Gay, 81, of Hot Springs, went to join the Lord on December 30, 2016. He was born on October 29, 1935 in Chipley, Florida, to the late Theo and Nella Rae Gay.

Our family would like to express our deepest appreciation to Arkansas Hospice for the love, care and compassion they have shown and shared. We would like to especially thank Michelle Clendenin, RN for her attention and devotion, Dr. Martin Koehn and all the wonderful aides that cared for him so lovingly.

We have been very blessed for God to have shared Carlos as husband and father. There is a vacancy in our hearts with his passing but a joy knowing he is with our Lord.
