He loved being a father to his beloved daughter, Stevie Jean. Gregory loved his OSU Cowboys and could often be found cheering them on and was possibly OSU’s biggest fan.

Gregory was baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in Junior High at First Christian Church in Shawnee. His life was defined by his love of sports.
