Walter Charles Gregory, 91, of Caseyville, IL passed away on November 26, 2019. He is preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Vinnie Gregory; his wife, Shirley Gregory; siblings, Robert (Betty) Gregory, Wanda (John) Steinheimer, Leland (Lou) Gregory, Mary (Jose) Franco, and Nancy (John) Connor. He is survived by his daughter, Cindy (Bernard) Heintz; grandchildren, Samuel, Evan, and Morgan Heintz; and his sister, Ruth (the late Pepe) Manso. Dear uncle, cousin, and friend.

Walter loved to travel all over the United States and enjoyed spending time outdoors. Though he was afflicted at a very young age with a virus which caused the loss of his hearing, nothing would hold him back and he led a very full and rich life. In his youth, he was very active in athletics and was an accomplished basketball player. He became the President of the IL Deaf Club and was a father figure to many. Walter loved to socialize and was always the life of the party. His feisty spirit and loving energy will be missed.
