    The life Maynard Gregory lived speaks volumes of all his ambitions while he done his duty here on earth. Maynard was as tough as leather and as ridgid as steel. He said what he meant and he ment what he said. As I worked by Maynard’s side on different job sites , I knew he wanted his work to be beyond satisfaction and right beside excellence. There were plenty of times while talking with that I realized those grandkids had him hooked ! lol! But most remembered moments was when he supported my family while my son and his granddaughter at such young ages encountered a sichness they had no control over. I saw right then his love for family and also to be a God-fearing man. He always had great advice for anywhere he would see me and would get off his swing or golf cart and ride down to the shop to help me fix an old busted water pump with some strap- iron ,nails and duct tape. He said “Son that’ll gotcha through the weekend don’t worry what it looks like and run with it! Maynard , it was great spending at little time with you here getting to know over the last 28 years was an honor. Enjoy that first plate of collards!!!😊🕊

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all—Tootsie, Kimberly, and Wesley—during this difficult time. Maynard and all the Gregory’s are very special to me—I only wish we could have known each other much sooner in life. I have enjoyed being included in your gatherings and remember so fondly the delicious BBQ Maynard cooked. He was a delight to know and be around—a true gentleman! I’m so proud to say he was a very special cousin of mine. Remember God will help you through the coming days. With lots of love and sympathy, Ann Honeycutt Medlin
