SANDBORN — Donald R. Gregg, 83, of Sandborn, went home to heaven surrounded by his loving wife and family at Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes on Monday, June 9, 2014. Don was born in Shelburn, on Oct. 26, 1930, to Richard A. Gregg and Freda J. (Reese) Gregg. Don married the love of his life Beverly ‘June’ Blackwood on Aug. 19, 1951.

He served on the board of directors at Citizens National Bank in Linton, American National and Regions Banks in Vincennes. In recent years, Don went on the “Walk to Emmaus”, a Christian retreat and became active in the Mens’ Weekend Events. He enjoyed his hobbies of restoring, collecting and showing Model T’s and Model A’s, volunteering at Sandborn Community Park and decorating his yard for special occasions.

Surviving are Don’s loved ones: his wife, Beverly June Gregg; three sons, John R. (Lisa) Gregg of Sandborn, James ‘Rob’ Gregg of Bloomington and Dr. Joseph ‘Joedy’ (Shelley) Gregg of Vincennes; grandchildren, Jozie Gregg, Justine Gregg, John Blackwood Gregg, Hunter Gregg and Stevie Kelly; and two sisters, Barbara (Amos) Musselman of Newberry and Patricia (Phillip) Poe of Linton. Don was preceded in death by his parents; and one sister, Donna Anleitner.
