David Gregory, 58, passed away peacefully at his home in Coconut Creek, Florida on February 8th. A 1973 graduate of Park Ridge High School, David maintained many lifelong friendships from his boyhood town.
He was born in Buffalo, New York to Patricia (nee Kelleher) and Herbert Gaines and was a loving son.
