It will be impossible for the family and friends of Devon Patrick Gray to ever view the Wood County Fair in the same way again. The young man’s tragic death in April 2013 was deeply felt at last year’s fair. This year his presence will remain a part of the yearly event.
The 15-year-old Otsego High School freshman died as the result of an ATV accident. The fair board approved a family member to show his goat at last year’s livestock sale. Gray was a member of the Beaver Creek Boosters 4-H Club and the Otsego FFA. His brother, Benjamin Gray, showed Devon’s goat in memory of his brother at the annual livestock sale.
The bid for the goat reached $2,600 and that money and countless other donations resulted in a memorial donation to the goat department of nearly $5,000.
That donation allowed the goat department to purchase 12 new goat pens for their barn at the fair.
The Grand Rapids resident was the son of John and Jane Gray. In addition to the donation a memorial brick has been approved for installation to memorialize Devon near the Livestock Exhibition Barn, commonly called the Champion Barn.

Farmers around Ohio will soon be faced with several choices concerning the national safety net for agriculture.
To help farmers get fully informed about coming ag commodity program changes due to the 2014 Farm Bill, the Ohio Farmers Union along with several sponsors will hold a Farm Bill Implementation Forum on Friday at Bowling Green State University.
"Because this new law brings change - and a new set of issues for farmers to consider - the Ohio Farmers Union is bringing together some of the nation's foremost experts on ag commodity programs to explain the new law," Joe Logan, president of OFU said.
Under the new law, farmers will take one of two paths regarding the ag safety net. One option is Price Loss Coverage, or PLC, a price-based assistance program. The other is Agricultural Risk Coverage, or ARC, a farm revenue-based program. The choice farmers make around the country will stick with them for the next five years.
