Hugh Stewart Gregg

Amelia - Stewart Gregg, age 81, of Amelia, OH, originally from Felicity, OH passed away September 5, 2018. He was born January 13, 1937, the son of Hugh Marshall Gregg and Esther Mae Gregg (nee Stewart). His father was founder and owner of A-1 Dry Cleaners in Cincinnati and Gregson Cleaners of Hyde Park. His parents were deceased in 1962 and 1974 respectively. Stewart graduated from Walnut Hills High in 1955 and attended the University of Cincinnati. He graduated with a BS in Group Work Education from George Williams College, Chicago receiving the Mott Fellowship and National YMCA Scholarships. He did post graduate work in Group Work Administration and simultaneously obtained certification as a professional YMCA Director. He served in the Peace Corps in Honduras service from 1962-1964. Working with Honduran colleagues he built roads, developed water systems, and taught fund raising, and health education. Stewart also instituted boys and girls activities, a carpentry school, and fun in a community center in San Pedro Sula. Until 1969 he worked as director at YMCAs in Minneapolis and Cleveland. He then worked in Human Resources at the University of Cincinnati and College of Medicine. In 1974 he became proprietor of Felicidad Farm in Felicity. He initially raised cattle and tobacco. After upgrading the land and trees his farm was awarded Certified Tree Farm from ATFS. Stewart considered this his most tangible contribution. He considered his association with the Clermont County Job Training Partnership doing career counseling and seminars as his most fond career niche. After retirement in 1974, he and Brenda Brown, his life partner, went on cruises, day trips, parties, and enjoyed retirement and life together thereafter. Survived by partner Brenda Brown, son Ralph Welsh, grandsons Trystan and Simon. There will be a private Celebration of Life, Sunday afternoon September 16. Contact Brenda for details.

Stewart was a fantastically interesting man who shared with me at lunches at Mercy Hospital Clermont about his love of work in Honduras, and his travels with Brenda. If only the world had more caring folks like him... Good thoughts and prayers for a delightful man.
