     Gregory Gordon Grace was born on 15 September 1967 at Truro, Nova Scotia.1 He married Shirley Verner circa 2000.1 Gregory Gordon Grace died on 23 July 2016 at Saint John, New Brunswick, at age 48.1

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gregory Gordon Grace on July 23, 2016 at Bobby’s Hospice. Gregory was born in Truro, NS on September 15, 1967 to Bill and Karen ([Bezanzon]) Grace and was the loving husband of 16 years to Shirley (Verner) Grace.

Gregory was a very hard working man, starting out as a car salesman in Truro, and then continuing when he moved to Saint John. He loved cars – both selling new cars and working on older cars, fixing them up and then selling them to others who would appreciate the effort put into fixing them. Eventually, he decided to move to working on Oil Rigs, which he really enjoyed, mostly because it gave him the ability to provide well for his family. Greg was a strong and confident man, with a dry sense of humor and an ability to just make you feel comfortable around him and like you were his friend after your first meeting. If he wasn’t singing and playing his guitar along with his ‘80’s rock music, he was with his family. His family was everything to him – his wife was his best friend and he genuinely enjoyed being at home with her and their kids. He was taken much too soon, and everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him will just miss this wonderful man.

In addition to his loving wife Shirley and his parents, Gregory is survived by his sons; Riley Grace, John (Sheryl) Gray and Michael (Tara) Gray, and daughter Sherry (Berley) Ebbett, grandchildren; Hailey, Brittany, Katelyn, Hannah, Derricka and Bentlee, brothers; Billy (Kim) and Dale (Donna) Grace, and sister Tammi (Dan) Grace, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Arrangements are entrusted to Fundy Funeral Home, 230 Westmorland Road (646-2424) where visitation will be held on Monday from 2-8pm. A funeral liturgy will be held on Tuesday, July 26, 2016 at 2pm from the Fundy Funeral Home Chapel.1
