Albert "Al" Henry Gregory

Albert "Al" Henry Gregory went to be with his heavenly father on Saturday, Oct. 18, 2003, at the V.A. Hospital in Fayetteville, Ark.

He was born on June 19, 1929, in Brutus, to Iva (Morris) and Frank Gregory. He most recently pastored churches in the Harrison and Texas area. He was also very proud to have been the guest pastor at several churches in the Brutus area.

He married Charlotte (Clark) on Dec. 21, 1957, in Petoskey. Before moving to Arkansas in 1974, he was employed at Hyde Equipment and worked in heavy equipment construction. He also owned and operated the Sunoco service station and operated Bay View Texaco. He was very active in the Lion's Club in Michigan and started a new club in Harrison, serving as the charter president. He was also the district governor for the club.

Surviving are his wife, Charlotte Gregory; two sons, Ray of Springfield, Mo., and Ron and his wife, Tracey, of Garland, Texas; three grandsons, Jacob, Matthew and Austin; two granddaughters, Allison and Ashley; one brother, Bill Gregory and wife, Marylee, of Petoskey; one sister, Anne Armstrong, of Jackson, Miss.; a sister-in-law, Inez Gregory, of Bangor, Mich.; two brothers-in-law, Arthur Clark and wife, Bertha, of Pellston and Bill Clark and wife, Frances, of Brutus; two sisters-in-law, Leona Burrows of Boyne City and Emeline Nestell of Petoskey; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at the Brutus Mennonite Church in the summer of 2004 and Mr. Gregory's ashes will be placed in the Brutus Mennonite Cemetery at that time.

Memorials may be made to the Brutus Mennonite Church or to the charity of choice.

Arrangements were handled by the Coffman Funeral Home in Harrison, Ark.
