11 Condolences for Michael P. “Mike” Gregory

  • Mike was my Ex-brother-in-law. I still think of him fondly and will miss him tremendously. Be happy up in heaven Mike and say hi to mom and pop.

    Love you. Bar

  • What may have been Mike’s last fishing trip was a great one. John and Helen Crockett, Mike and I had pinched the barbs on our hooks and were having to throw back big sea trout. It was a rare and beautiful day on the water. I am so glad I have that memory of Mike. All of the friends of Mike in the Keys will miss him greatly. We offer our condolences to the family.
    Charlie and Lynda Stroud.

  • Only thing I can say is I hope the fishing is great. RIP Mike!

  • Susan, our thoughts are with you. . . I am just sorry I never got to make Mike his meatloaf! Larry and Wendy Mayle

  • Mike was a good man. Plenty of people say that about folks that pass but Mike was the real deal. I knew him through fishing and he put me up at his house on Big Pine for the past three years each Spring and expected nothing other than good times in return. He cared endlessly about his family, and had countless friends from so many walks of life. His warmth and generosity are of a breed not often seen. Mike was decades older than me and yet we could crack a beer and catch some fish and just feel alive on the water. We could talk for hours or say nothing at all and somehow he just had a way of relating to people. He’s gone way too soon but I am comforted knowing he lived in a way few will ever know: as a magnet to countless people he treated as wholesome friends and having earned myriad life experiences on and off the water that people only dream about. My sadness is petty compared to so many that are his family and lifelong friends, but I will never forget him.

  • Mike was a great guy ,he would do anything for you .l will miss our afterwork fishing trips to Shallcross lake and our spring striper fishing trips on the Susquahanna .Good fishing Buddy!

  • My sincere sympathy to Susan and family. May Mike have many wonderful fishing trips in heaven. RIP 🙏🏻

  • My condolences to everyone who loved Uncle Mike. He will be greatly missed. Since I live in Florida now, we know of a really good charity that I think would have made him happy. So, we will be making a donation in his name to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation to keep his memories in the keys possible to future generations. Wish we could be there tomorrow. Love you guys!

  • In all of my 77 years here on Earth, I’ve never met another man as kind and caring as Mike. He was a genuinely nice man, and mere words are not enough to describe his genuine “goodness”! Since much of how I feel about Mike is written by Ed Wilson, another guest, and my writing skills are not up to his level, I echo Ed’s sentiments. (Hope you don’t mind Ed) He will be sorely missed by many, but I guess God went fishing for a keeper and caught the best when He ‘reeled’ him in. Miss you Mike!!

  • I am deeply saddened to hear of Mike’s passing. We were neighbors for years and friends even if we didn’t see each other but infrequently. He was a great guy. I was away and returned too late to make the service. I am so sorry for the families loss.

  • I met Mike on a job some 30 years ago. He had tools, tools and more tools. Always willing to help fix things. If I had any questions about elecrial issues, he was the go to man.
    Mike had just texted me photos of the fish he caught in the Keys. He had a great trip. He was a good friend and person and I will miss him dearly.
    Your friend, Steve Riddle
