August 20, 1946 ~ May 30, 2018 (age 71)
Gregg, Larry R., 71, of Liberty Township, passed away Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at Hospice of Butler and Warren County. He was born August 20, 1946 in Greenville, TN to Fain and Tabetha (Barr) Gregg. His parents then moved the family to Richmond, Indiana where he grew up. He grew up diligently working alongside his father farming starting at the age of 6 years old. Larry graduated from Richmond High School in 1964 from which he went on to join the Army and was sent to Munich Germany where he met his wife Christine and married her in 1967. Christine had a son Greg whom passed away in May of 2013 at age 51. Larry and Christine welcomed their son Marc C. Gregg in 1969. Larry left the Army as an E-5 and worked very hard to become a truck driver before taking a position as a State Trooper for the State of Ohio. He was stationed at the Hamilton post 9. He was very successful in apprehending stolen vehicles along with those whom were driving them which earned him a Blue Max award. After several years on the force, Larry went back to the trucking business working as a Safety Supervisor for 20 years and was awarded for his good service and recovery of stolen goods. He joined a different company Yellow/USF Holland Trucking Company and was also very successful in his position as Safety Supervisor there until retirement. He took a job with the City of Middletown in transportation, he enjoyed his job, the many people he worked with, and the public he met while working. Larry is survived by his wife of 50 years, Christine (Skotton) Gregg; son, Marc (Heather) Gregg; grandchildren, Hannah, Caleb, and Sarah Isaacs; great- grandchild, Oliver Isaacs; sisters, Norma Jean Werner and Lynette Werner, and numerous nieces, nephews, and family. He is preceded in death by his parents and son, Gottfrid “Greg” Pressler. Larry was always eager to lend a helping hand to everyone. He loved the Freedom of the outdoors and loved gardening and harvesting crops for many years. He was a kind and loving man that was eager to learn new things so that he could share his knowledge. Larry was a very quiet man but never refused a request for help and was a very hard worker whom will truly be missed.
