Michael Edward Gregory

July 31, 1956 - August 17, 2014

Michael Edward Gregory, 58, passed away on August 17, 2014, from complications following pneumonia. Michael was born in Elizabethtown, NY, on July 31, 1956 to Lorie and Edward Gregory and lived in the Town of Keene all his life.

He graduated from Keene Central School in 1974. Michael was a good student and an exceptional athlete. He loved sports with his favorite being soccer.

Soon after graduating from High School the dark cloud of mental illness blotted out much of the sunshine in his life. He carried on, though, living life simply, kindly and with great courage.

Michael left many friends with whom he chatted over coffee or coke most every day at theNoonmark Diner, Stewarts and the Baxter Mountain Tavern. Years ago Michael became the caregiver to a stray cat around Stewarts which he fed daily, no matter what the weather - Michael loved all animals.

Michael was predeceased by his father, Edward Gregory. Surviving is his mother and best friend Lorie, sisters Wendy Sheasby and Suzanne Preston, nieces Heidi Sheasby and Elly Preston and a nephew Morgan Sheasby.

All are invited to celebrate Michael's life this Sunday, August 24th from 1:00 -3:00 PM at "The Barn", home of Sue & Seymour Preston in Keene Valley. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
