Fred L. Gregory, 82, of Fourmile, KY earned his heavenly reward on Friday, October 2nd , 2020
after a courageous battle with cancer. Fred was born on February 21st , 1938 in Flat Lick, KY to the late
Roger and Nellie Anne Trent Gregory. On March 2nd,1957 he united in marriage with Rosalee Hendrickson,and together, they built a life they loved. Fred and Rosalee were blessed with two daughters and three sons.

To support his family, Fred worked in the local coal mines. In his spare time, he enjoyed working
on cars, playing the guitar, cooking, and later in life, watching westerns. After being baptized on June 5th ,
2005, he picked up the hymnal of his church and sang for the Lord. His two most favorite songs were
“Bound for That City” and “Great Speckled Bird”. His kitchen was the welcoming place of his home. He
could combine ingredients and spices in a way that no one can ever replicate. His favorite times to cook
were the holidays when the generations of his family could gather within the walls of his home to love
and visit with one another. He faithfully attended church every time the doors were open. In display of
his devout faith throughout his illness, he would often say that he “was a winner either way”.

In addition to his parents, Fred is preceded in death by his brothers Herbert, Tom, Bob, and
Charles “Rog” Gregory; sisters: Vada Wilson, Nan Gambrel, Nellie “Bud” Smith, Irma Lott and Joyce
Wilson; grandson Curtis Gregory; daughter-in-law Sue Gregory, granddaughter-in-law Amy Gregory,
grandson-in-law Justin Clontz, and special friends Billy Ray and Jewell Carroll.

Left to carry on his legacy are his loving wife, of over 63 years, Rosalee Gregory; three sons:
Mike Gregory, Tim Gregory, Jason Gregory and wife Angel, all of Fourmile; two daughters: Janet Carroll
and husband Mike, and Irma Brooks and husband Darrell, both of Pineville; fourteen grandchildren:
Michael Paul Gregory, Janet Lynn (A.J.) Wilson, Christian (Jeff) Peterson, Timothy “T.J.” Gregory, Harley
Gregory, Robert “Rob” Miller, Larry (Rachael) Miller, Bruce (Beth) Miller, Will, Connor, and Emmalin
Gregory, Carrie (Joe) Daniels, Ashley (Mike) Bennett, and Amanda (Michael) Branstutter; eighteen great-
grandchildren: Brittany Clontz, Taylor Gregory, Shelby Wilson, Anna Wilson, Marcus Peterson, Gabriel
Peterson, Ethan Warren, Hannah Daniels, Annslee Bennett, Chanda Martin, Gracie Branstutter, Ellie and
Elsie Miller, Tristan and Evelyn Utterback, Gabby and Maddy Miller, and Chase and Destiny Gregory;
one great-great-grandson Weston Brent Clontz; sister Marie (Bill) Broughton, special friends Linda and
Brenda Elam, Jimmy and Betty Jones and Dale Gibbons, and a host of many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and dear friends.

We would like to thank everyone who prayed for our dad, sent a card, brought a meal, or said
an encouraging word. We are delighted to know that he is now in that city of light singing in the angel
choir. We want to express our sincerest gratitude to Dr. Michael Bidros and his staff of the St. Joseph
Health Cancer Center, Dr. William Richards of the Commonwealth Cancer Center, and Bluegrass Hospice
for their excellent care during his illness.
