Dear Lynn, Paul, & Family,
Georjean and I did not have the privilege of knowing your Dad. When we read about his background: his commitment to dental education, his service in Central & South America providing dental medicine to those who would otherwise not receive it, and the activist approach he and his wife adopted with the civil rights and anti-war movements, we feel like we would have gotten along very well with him. His record of service in several different areas is a strong reminder of how much more we can do. We are sorry for your loss, and very sorry that we did not get to know him. We are proud to be considered part of the family.

With love,


Ed & Georjean Hartfield

Sorry to hear about Dr. Gregory's passing. He was my favorite instructor in dental school and a wonderful man.

His was a life worth celebrating. His devotion to family and to social justice were exemplary. I remember the free dental work he provided for Civil Rights workers who came up North for R & R in the 60's. And that his waiting room was the only one in notoriously racist Dearborn that had Jet and Ebony on the tables for patients to read. He and his dear wife, Louise, told me when i started graduate school not to worry about paying for my dental work until i was though with school and on my feet financially. I also remember how long it took him to sell his practice because he wanted to be sure that whoever took over would take good care of his patients. (And his successor certainly has done that.) It is rare in this life to find two people as thoroughly good as Bill and Louise. We are all better off for their having shared their lives with us.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Dr. Gregorys passing. He was very instrumental in my matriculation through UofM school of dentistry-specifically the 2 green clinic during my last two years. Like many others in my class, Michigan was not my home state, and he became like family to me.. Like another grandfather. He was always my word of encouragement, always there with a smile, and an excellent point of reference. Always pushing me to be the best that I could be. He was, in fact, so instrumental, that I was inspired to teach my first year out of dental school at our great institution. I remember my first day teaching, running to him in 2Green and him saying, you're still here kiddo I will be forever be grateful to God for allowing such a wonderful leader in my life, especially at such a vulnerable time, who influenced and cultivated the art and science that I practice almost every day-dentistry. To his family, may God bless and comfort you during this time of transition. And to our dental school falculty/family, may we strive to live the kind, loving, considerate, fun-loving and wise life that Dr. Gregory lived. While my humanity is saddened, my heart, and my faith reminds me that I will see him again.
God bless
UofM Class of 2011
