Andrew T. Gregg
December 30, 1964 - June 12, 2020
Andrew Thompson Gregg, a San Francisco resident since 1994, died suddenly from effects of an internal hemorrhage. Born in Newport, Rhode Island, most of Andrew's youth was spent in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. A Duke University graduate, Andrew's career interests ranged from international to municipal political affairs. After Duke, he taught in a "non-racial" school in South Africa and was active in the anti-Apartheid movement. In Washington D.C. he worked for the US Department of Energy, before becoming a program manager for The Center for Democracy's global hunger-relief effort. Moving to California he served as a senior policy advisor to Mayor Susan Hammer of San Jose. Following partnerships in two San Francisco consulting firms, in 2008 he established his own practice, ATG Public Affairs, specializing in land use planning in the city and Bay Area.
He is survived by his parents, Robert and Mary Layne Gregg of Stanford, by his brother Clark, his sisters Courtney Gregg Phillips and Amy Gregg Masterson and their families.
A vital person devoted to social justice, Andrew Gregg enjoyed strong friendships, challenging work and good vacations, and sports--especially Duke basketball and world soccer. Andrew's spirit and humor are cherished by his family and by all who knew him.
Due to the pandemic, no services have been planned.

Andrew and I went through a very challenging experience together in 2018. I saw him quickly transform into a new man -- healthy and radiant. I'm a contractor, and we have a large job right by his place in the Marina. I would often bump into him as he was headed out for, or returning from, a run at Crissy Field, looking like the very portrait of health and success. I was sure he had turned that critical and difficult corner once and for all. I was grateful that my friend Andrew was actually achieving what so many others like us could not. I was so proud. I had been wondering why he was no longer returning my texts. I finally did the dreaded search online and was hit with this sad blow. If anyone could put me in touch with his family, I would greatly appreciate it. I would like to share my memories of Andrew with them. -Sid. [email protected]

Andrew was my sister’s boyfriend many, many years ago. He was always one of my favorites! I have not seen or spoken with him in decades. We had such good times with him and in my family circle have reminisced about him and those times over and over again. I will always remember him as so engaging, passionate, funny, and handsome. Those who knew him in any capacity will never forget him. My heart and condolences goes out to his friends and family.

I am sad. I didn’t know Andrew well in high school, but we bumped into one another while living in Washington DC and had lunch. What stood out to me the most about Andrew was his passion for his work and his compassion for others. His accomplishments and his life are certainly to be celebrated, and I will cherish my memory of Andrew.
