This is a very sad day for me. Butch Hutson

Gregory (or Pretzel as we called him as kids), was a wonderful childhood friend - fun loving and fiercely independent as a boy. We got into some mischief in the early 60's but nothing too serious. He was a great and loyal friend, the kind every boy seeks growing up. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.
Like my brother Barry, I to am sorry to hear of his passing. I inherited his paper route and due to his "passionate" way of collecting the weekly subscription from his customers, I had no problem with getting my money. He was a good friend and my condolences go out to his family.

To family, Gregory was a good person and I had a lot of good times at the Fire station. We would talk for hours and he will be missed; I'm so sorry to hear he's gone. I made a knife for him years ago and gave it to him; he was so happy it made me happy just to give it to him. I will miss him, Larry Cooper

Amazing grace! (how sweet
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!
Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
