Obituary for Donald “Donnie” Dean Gregory

Donald “Donnie” Dean Gregory, 70 of Harmony Day Support Group Home in Forest, Va., formerly of Pulaski, passed away peacefully in his sleep Tuesday, July 21, 2020.

Donnie was born May 7, 1950, the youngest of five siblings to Thomas Lee Gregory and Susan Smith Gregory. Donnie was deaf and mute from birth, but made up for the lack of these senses in other ways. He was incredibly strong, had a great love for animals, particularly dogs and loved to laugh and make others laugh, which they said he was doing Monday night before he passed.

Donnie was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers, Marvin Gregory and Doug Gregory and his sister, Lola Stout.

Donnie is survived by his sister, Shirley Eden of Pulaski and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their heart-felt thanks to the staff of Harmony Day Support for their many years of care they provided Donnie.
