His Legacy…Charles William Gregory, 67, passed away May 16, 2022.  He was born on September 14, 1954, in Chicago, Illinois to George Gregory and Irene (Dahlbom) Gregory. Chuck enjoyed a variety of activities, including fishing, camping, cross-country skiing, karaoke, collecting knives, scratching lottery tickets, and huge bonfires. One of his favorite pastimes was sitting in his garage for socialization with his friends, family, and a cold beer. Chuck loved people, was selfless, dependable, and was always willing to help others in need. The day he was connected with his daughter Brianna was one of the best in his life. In Brianna’s own words regarding her father: “The life experiences that he had been through without losing his decency, heart, and light is the definition of strength…He was strong, stubborn, witty, funny, life of the party, dad, brother, husband, uncle, and best friend to all.” He will be greatly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to have met him.

His Family… Chuck will be missed by his significant other, Laurelyn Clement; his children, Melissa Clement, Eric (Stephanie) Clement, and Brianna Vanderpool (fiancé Josh Burgess); half-brother, Jerry Sandstrom; grandchildren, Spencer and Alexis Saxon, Harrison Clement, and Levi Burgess; many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his brother George Gregory and his parents, George and Irene Gregory.

His Farewell… Chuck’s family and friends will gather for a Celebration of Life at a later date. Memorial contributions are suggested to the American Cancer Society or may be given to family for future designation.  Please leave a message of comfort for Chuck’s family at 1-877-231-7900, or sign his guestbook at
