Just to note that there is an article on John Gray published in:
Richardson, B.; Wu, R.; Shin, P.; Lam, P.; Fleddum, A.; Elliott, M. ; Sheppard, C. 2008: A tribute to John Stuart Gray (1941-2007). Marine Pollution Bulletin 56(1): 1-4.
Begins: "The marine science community has been greatly saddened to learn that Professor John Gray, PhD, DSc, passed away on Sunday 21st of October at the age of 66 following a battle with pancreatic cancer. John was an internationally renowned environmental scientist whose research was dedicated to moving benthic ecology and studies of marine pollution from observation to hypothesis testing and finally, in a natural progression, to practical, applied usage of monitoring techniques. John was also a dedicated educator, not only of undergraduate and post-graduate students in Norway and abroad, but also of governments and the general public, and his intellectual contributions will undoubtedly continue to shape the future of marine benthic ecology, marine pollution studies and their various applications. Above all, John was a wonderful friend, colleague, mentor and gentleman (in all senses of the word), and will be greatly missed."
