He attended Winston-Salem City Schools, and was employed by the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem for 44 years until retiring as a Maintenance Supervisor. Silas was a devoted husband who loved his family, church, helping others, and ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people he came in contact with.

Gray before joining St. Peters World Outreach Center where he served as a minister, adjutant, and head of the Street Witnessing Team under the leadership of Bishop James C. Hash, Sr. Always sharply dressed; Silas was quick to strike up a conversation with a stranger with an encouraging word or a laugh.

He was a volunteer with the Red Cross of NC, and was an active member of Forsyth and Davison County Prison Ministry. Lastly; Silas never missed an opportunity to dote on his wife whom he loved and adored.
