He was born in Springfield, MA on July 22, 1990 and resided in Enfield his entire life. DJ worked at Gengras Jeep Chrysler and Dodge as a parts specialist.

He loved his animals and especially his newborn kitten he named “Cubby”, as that was his nickname as a child. He had a passion for cooking and was happy when he made something and watched as his prepared meal was eaten. DJ had this giddy laugh that made everyone laugh, it was contagious! He also loved his fireworks!
DJ loved his sports and looked forwarded to the football, hockey and March madness season and listening to ESPN sports radio. He always said his NCAA bracket pool was the winner that year. He was a huge fan of the NY Jets, Detroit Redwings and New York Yankees. He was an avid hockey player, having played 4 years of high school hockey and always protected his smaller teammates whenever the opposing went after them. He also enjoyed playing softball with his high school and childhood friends. DJ also volunteered a couple of years for the Enfield Starr’s Special Olympics softball team.
DJ is survived by his wife Christie (Longe) and step-son Charlie that he adored, he also leaves his dad, Daniel DeGray, Sr. & his wife Dina St. George, his mom, Kimberly (Hanna) DeGray and her companion Andrew Bak, his siblings Connor, Jamie & Hadley, his three nephews Jonathon, Jace & Jionni, his paternal grandparents Daniel & Frances DeGray, his maternal grandfather Lawrence Hanna, Sr., as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

My heart was caught when I saw you suddenly lost your precious son Dj and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose such a beautiful child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief and our words may not help but Jesus assures us at John 5:28,29 that you will have your son in your arms once again without the pain we see today. Until God’s promises come true may every good thought, every memory of the love you felt, flood and overtake you with calm and peace to help you through the dark moments. Please go to for more encouraging scriptures and videos to help heal your broken heart 💔 Sue
