James "Jim" H. Gregg
James “Jim” H. Gregg 67 of Stockdale passed away on Thursday October 3, 2019 at Monongahela Valley Hospital. Born in N. Charleroi on March 5, 1952, a son of the late Jacob and Harriett Culler Gregg. Jim was a Vietnam War veteran having served in the US Army. He worked as an operator for PVS Chemical in Allenport and would have retired in November of this year.
Jim was a member of the Stockdale VFD #17 where he served as the Safety Officer, a past president and known to have the BEST mustache of the entire fire department. He was also a member of the Roscoe American Legion Post #801, the Roscoe Sportsmen’s Association and the Long Branch Sportsmen’s Association. Jim was currently a member of the Stockdale Council and the Police Board. He was a former member and past president of the Roscoe VFD #16. Jim was an avid hunter, fisherman and always had a story to tell. He was the “go to” & “right hand man” at Melenyzer’s Funeral Home in Roscoe for more years then one can count. Jim will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Surviving is his wife of 30 years, Mary “Toni” Tushak Gregg , 2 sons and daughters-in-law Jamey and Shellie Gregg of Elco and Michael and Kara Gregg of Granville, 5 grandchildren; Jayme Ray, Scarlet, Brady, Kaylee and Rylan and 2 sisters; Glenda Gottheld of Rices Landing and Donna Corrick of Carmichaels. Jim is also survived by his 2 four legged companions; Muna and Odie. There will be no public visitation. Arrangements have been entrusted to Melenyzer Funeral Homes & Cremation Services, Inc. Roscoe.
I am shocked and grieved at the news of Jim's passing. I have always felt like an adopted Gregg growing up with Jimmy next door. Playing Euchre with Jim, Kenny, and Jake for hours on summer days. Hanging out and being kids. Sounds like a full life and a great family. He was truly blessed and will be greatly missed by many. Sincerely, David Huber

A part of my heart died October 3rd, Jim worked with me for many many years and was truly the FIRST RES PONDER for any job that need done. Night or day. Ten minutes after I got a death call Jim was on his way to be with the family.He took care of my automobiles, moved furniture and when I occasionally cooked and made extra for him, he would tell me "it didn't look real good ,but it sure did taste good". There will never be another Jim but I know when my time comes, I will see him again. Jim & Toni were the perfect couple. Bless you Toni he is watching over you.!!!
