Alfred was born on February 27, 1937 to Herbert and Josephine Gray of Masonsville (Baltimore) Maryland. Later the family moved from Masonville to the Venice on the Bay area of Pasadena, Maryland. In September of 1962 he married Kay Shaw of Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. They were married for 59 years until her passing in November of 2021.

 He attended and graduated from Glen Burnie High School in 1956 where he played on both the varsity basketball and baseball teams. 

 After high school he was drafted into the army, serving 2 years at Fort Bliss, Texas. After his service in the army he worked in the masonry field in and around Baltimore, first as an apprentice, then bricklayer, foreman and estimator with the Sorenson Masonry company. In 1972 Alfred and a Sorenson co-worker struck out on their own and founded Carson & Gray, Inc. He became sole owner upon Mr. Carson’s retirement.

 Alfred attended and was an integral part of the Brooklyn Bible Chapel since he was 3 weeks old.

He also was the song leader, a preacher, choir director, a teacher at the Baltimore School of the Bible and had a gospel singing group in the 1970’s called “The Chapel Singers”.
