Douglas Martin Gregory 84, recently of Livingston, Montana, passed away Saturday, September 25, 2021 at Livingston Health and Rehabilitation. Doug was born on May 14, 1937 in Petoskey, Michigan. He was the son of Winifred (Martin) and Watson Gregory. Doug grew up in Petoskey, Michigan and spent many summers with relatives in the nearby town of Charlevoix. He graduated from St. Francis Xavier High School Class of 1955. He later attended Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.On August 23, 1957, Doug was united in marriage to Marilyn ("Monnie") Janice Miller, at the St. Joseph Catholic Church in St. Joseph, Michigan. Doug and Marilyn shared 58 wonderful years of marriage together. They were blessed with three children, Paul, Lisa, and Lori. Doug, Marilyn, & the children lived in a variety of cities in Michigan, moving each time Doug received a promotion, and eventually settling on the shores of Lake Michigan in Traverse City. After Paul and Lisa were off to college, Doug took another promotion in a much warmer climate- much to the delight of Marilyn!-and Doug, Marilyn, and Lori moved to Norcross, Georgia. A few years later, the lake life was calling them again, and they built their dream home on Lake Oconee in Greensboro, GA. Doug then retired, and he and Marilyn spent the rest of their lives together there. While they loved every minute of living there, the road called them frequently, and they spent their retirement years traveling in their RV, visiting their dear friends in their Coachman RV club, as well as family and friends all across the country.Doug was a self-starter. He taught himself how to build just about anything by reading about it and figuring it out. From houses to bookcases to cedar chests to walking sticks to decorative signs for his RV club members to ponytail elastic holders and everything in between, if one of us wanted it, he would figure out how to build it. His greatest accomplishment in this realm, the one he was most proud of, was the house he and Marilyn built-pretty much on their own-on Lake Oconee. He loved his family, enjoyed visiting with people, and always had his beloved pets nearby. He enjoyed boating, fishing, traveling, and spending time with his kids and grandkids. We are going to miss this wonderful man, but we are all glad he is finally happy to be back with the love of his life, "Monnie," once again.Doug is survived by his son Paul (Suzy) Gregory, his daughters Lisa (Scott) Rosberg and Lori Ernst, his grandchildren Maggie Gregory, Morgan Rosberg, Sammie and Jonathan Ernst, as well as his siblings Watson, Michael, Mary, and Patrick Gregory, and many nieces and nephews.Douglas is preceded in death by his parents, Winifred and Watson Gregory, his sister, Anne (Raad), and his wife Marilyn.A Memorial Funeral Service will be held in St. Joseph, Michigan in the summer of 2022 with arrangements TBD.
