Gregory V. “Greg” Fiske, age 64, of Townsend, DE, passed away on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, at Christiana Hospital.
Born in Red Bank, NJ, on July 27, 1958, he was the son of the late Vincent J. and Jean (Plate) Fiske. He grew up in Hazlet, New Jersey with his parents, grandparents, and sister, Carolyn. He attended the Hazlet schools there and went on to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Engineering from Drexel University and a master’s degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Most of his career was spent as a civilian employee in Engineering for the U.S. Army at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. After its closure in 2011, Greg relocated to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland where he retired in October 2014.
Greg participated in various sports such as golf, skiing, and tennis. He was also an avid softball player in a league at Fort Monmouth, and after his retirement, with the New Castle County Senior Softball League. He was a passionate baseball fan and followed the NY Mets since their inception. Greg also enjoyed reading, mostly histories and mysteries, and enjoyed participating in the Book Club for Adults at Dover Public Library and the History Book Club. Greg had a strong faith, most recently worshipping at Tree of Life Lutheran Church in Odessa. He was a generous giver who donated to multiple charities, culminating with being a donor through Gift of Life organ and tissue donor program.
In addition to his parents, Greg was preceded in death by his sister, Carolyn. He is survived by his wife of 32 years, Carla (Bates); and his three children, Nathaniel, Abigail (and her husband Dan and family), and Jeremy.
A celebration of Greg’s life will be held at a later date. Interment will be privately.
