Robert Wright Gregson, Jr., 83 of North East, MD, died Saturday, March 2, 2019 in the University of Maryland Medical Center, Baltimore, MD.
Born in Elk Mills, MD, on March 30, 1935, he was the son of the late Robert Wright Gregson, Sr. and Agnes Harriett (Riggs) Gregson.
Prior to his retirement, Robert worked as a repairman for Chrysler Corp. Most of his life he willingly worked two jobs, taking care of his family.
After his retirement, he enjoyed camping, especially at Outdoor World. He liked working cryptograms and watching football, calling his son during the game to see if he was also watching. Most of all he loved his family, cherishing the time they spent together. He took great joy calling each of them on their birthdays, singing happy birthday, then to his delight, hanging up as soon as he was done so they didn’t have a chance of thanking him.
