Gray's funeral is at Trinity Baptist Church on Hammond Boulevard.

Reverend Tom Messer will preside over the services.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office arrested Gray last year on molestation charges.

At least twenty women and one man have since come forward to claim Gray abused them as children.His hospitalization last month delayed the start of his criminal trial, which had been set for this week.

The criminal charges, however, have been dismissed due to his death.

Six civil lawsuits accusing Trinity Baptist of knowing about Bob Gray's behavior but doing nothing to protect the children are still moving forward.
