Obituary of Ricky Gregory

Mr. Ricky Gregory - age 45, of the Oakdale Community in Macon County, TN passed away on May 20, 2011 at his residence. A Memorial Service for Ricky Gregory will be conducted Sunday, May 22 at 3 p.m. form the chapel of Alexander Funeral Home with Elder Mark Gregory and Elder Dusty Bradley officiating. Ricky Gregory was born December 21, 1965 to Elder Dale Gregory and Peggy Gregory. He was one of two children born to this union. Ricky was married to Rachel Adcock on May 19, 2005, sharing six years together. Ricky was the proud father of four sons and one daughter. He enjoyed life to the fullest, being an avid hunter and fisherman as well as a NASCAR enthusiast. He was a huge Dale Earnhardt, Jr. fan. He had worked at several places over the years as a Maintenance Supervisor. He was saved by the grace of God on June 19, 1978, and he did not tell it for 2 ½ years. He got saved at a tent meeting in the field at his grandparent's house with preaching by his father, Elder Dale Gregory and Elder D. Russell. He went a lot of years before he joined a church. He was struck with cancer before he did join Maple Grove Missionary Baptist Church #3. He said he stopped there one afternoon and sat on the porch praying to God to show him what he needed to do, so I guess he did. He joined there on June 19, 2008 where he remained a member in good standing with the Church until he passed on to be with God. Since that time, two of his sons have been saved. He was preceded in death by his father, Elder Dale Gregory and his grandparents, Tom and Eula Graves and Claude and Pearl Gregory. Ricky will be missed dearly by his family and all who loved him. He is survived by; Wife, Rachel Gregory, Mother, Peggy Gregory, Sons, Chase Thomas Gregory, Wade Allen Dye, Riley Lynn Gregory, Ethan Randall Gregory, Daughter, Kaetlyn Mikael Dye, His special Dog, Chemo, along with many friends.
