Vigil held in Gloucester for 2 fishermen presumed lost at sea

GLOUCESTER — They gathered to pray for their lost fishermen. In the windy darkness at the edge of the ocean, they lit and relit flickering candles. Behind them, lights from distant boats shone on the water.

About 80 people attended a vigil on Sunday night at the Gloucester Fisherman’s Memorial to honor Wally Gray Jr., 26, and Wayne Young, 50, who steered their scallop boat out of Gloucester Harbor last Saturday for one final voyage before the holiday. They never came back.
