Larry R. Gregory
September 28, 1964 ‒ October 25, 2020
Larry R. Gregory, age 56, of Chesterville, passed away at his home, Sunday, October 25, 2020.
On September 28, 1964, Larry was born in Mount Gilead, Ohio, a son of the late John Herman and Shirley Maxine (Lane) Gregory. He graduated from Highland High School in the Class of 1982.
For many years he worked as a machinist at H.P.M. in Mount Gilead then at Precision Tooling in Sunbury.
Larry was a great outdoorsman. He loved fishing, foraging wild mushrooms, trap shooting and bow hunting. One of his passions was to spend weekends with fellow flint knappers. He didn’t hesitate to lend a hand when a friend or family member needed help. Larry also spent time volunteering teaching teenagers archery at Marengo Christian Church and Sportsmans Fellowship. It didn’t matter how big or small of a job it was like building a log home or replacing a distributor cap on a friend’s car. He was an accomplished mechanic and machinist. He was a caregiver for his father, mother, and sister as they struggled with serious illnesses. His passing has left a big hole everyone’s hearts and he will be greatly missed.
Larry is survived by two sisters, Penny June Gregory of Brunswick, Georgia and Marla Cay Butler of Tucson, Arizona; one Uncle, Wilbur Dean Gregory of Idaho; three nephews: Lance Joseph Sabbe, John Paul Sabbe, Mathew Arron Pope; and one niece, Melissa Jo King. He had three grand nephews and four grand-nieces as well two great grand- nieces.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his oldest sister, Joan Marguerite Gregory.
A private memorial service will be held by his family. He will be laid to rest with his parents in Maple Grove Cemetery.
