I have many wonderful memories of the entire Gregory family, especially going to the car races with my dad, Donnie, and Barbara. Nancy and Donnie created a warm and loving home and always made me feel welcome when I visited during the summer.

Uncle Donnie, loved cars and racing. I remember a baby blue coupe that he built/worked on . He was so happy with it. His tools were always spotless and organized.
He was particular and took the time to get ready for the day. His hair was always just so, no matter what. he had a smile that melted your heart. He joked and teased but always was a gentle soul.
Loved him
