Obituary

Daniel Dean Gregory, 77, died June 18, 2020, with his family by his side in Virginia Beach, Va.

He was born February 10, 1943 in Jackson, Michigan. From childhood to adulthood, he was always known for his creativity. As a boy, he loved fishing, music, and performing, as he learned to play the trombone and accordion. He attended a one-room schoolhouse during grade school, graduated at seventeen-years-old, and entered the Navy upon graduating high school. He married his wife of fifty-seven years, Linda Gregory, in 1963.

He served in the Navy for twenty-nine years. During his time in the Navy, he served many unique roles, including reading and reporting news on the ship, and writing articles for naval publications. He was also known for his comedy skits and routines he performed on the ship, as well as making documentaries of his time with his fellow sailors. He also served as a drug and alcohol abuse counselor during his service in the navy, and had a positive impact on many.

He began working part-time at radio stations during his time in the Navy, and turned this experience into an impactful career upon retiring from the Navy. His time working for various radio stations was highlighted by his program “Dangerous Dan Gregory and the Midnight Frolics” on WCMS, as well as his Sunday morning program on WFOG, “Music for Meditation.” He was very active in his church, Princess Anne Plaza Baptist, starting in the early 2000’s. Dan was especially loved and known in his family as being the family videographer, for his many stories and songs, and for the joyous spirit and pure character he embodied as a husband, father, uncle, and grandfather.

He was preceded in death by his father, Russell Gregory; mother, Ruth Gregory; and brother Stanley Gregory.

He is survived by his wife, Linda; sister Caroline Curl; and daughter, Debbie Gann (son-in-law, Eddie Gann; grandson, Josh Gann; grand daughter-in-law, Hailee Gann; and grandson, Jacob Gann).

In lieu of flowers, consider donating to the Wounded Warriors Project.

A celebration of life will be held at 1:00 pm, Thursday, June 25th at London Bridge Baptist Church. Mr. Gregory will be interred at Albert G. Horton Jr. Veterans Cemetery at a later date.

Please share a memory with the family via the "Condolences and Tributes" tab.
