Gregory Alan Middleton
December 22, 1959 – October 23, 2020
Gregory Alan Middleton, age 60, of Springfield, Virginia, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Friday, October 23, 2020. Greg was born in Alexandria, Virginia, on December 22, 1959, and lived his entire life in and around Northern Virginia. He was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Champ Alexander Middleton and Evelyn Lucille Middleton. Greg was a loving son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, nephew, and cousin to his many relatives.
Greg was a 1978 graduate of Annandale High School and worked as a dedicated dispatcher throughout his career for several HVAC companies in the Northern Virginia area. He was a lifetime fan of Washington area sports teams, especially the Washington Football Team. His greatest joy, however, was watching his favorite baseball team since childhood, the Oakland Athletics. Watching games with Greg will always be one of his family’s favorite memories.
Greg lived life through simple pleasures; he enjoyed laughing with friends and family, watching his sports teams, and spending time with his many aunts, uncles, and cousins. His nieces and nephews loved their Uncle Greg and will never forget his kind-hearted nature and generous spirit. His brothers and sisters will always remember him as their beautiful brother who was loving, caring, and kind. Greg was adored by his family and will live on in their hearts and minds forever.
Family and friends are welcome to join Greg’s immediate family on Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 1:00pm at Mount Comfort Cemetery in Alexandria, Virginia, for his graveside service and burial (social distancing is required at Mount Comfort).

Catherine & I were saddened to hear of Greg’s passing. Growing up in Ravensworth was certainly a family environment and having three sets of aunts & uncles with thirteen cousins all within the neighborhood only reinforced that impression. I have such fond memories of the Middleton’s and Hawthorne’s squaring off in what seemed to be endless games of whiffle ball & kick ball replacing the chain link fence in their back yard as our own green monster. I recall family Christmas parties that often found Greg, with a dozen or so relatives, crowded around a television watching his beloved now Washington Football Team – oh how we hated losing to the Cowboys.
I’ll remember Greg as a quiet gentle man always ready to extend a kind and encouraging word. Living only a few hundred yards away, he was faithfully willing to help out when an extra hand was needed.
In the gospel of John, God provides us with a preview of our eternal reunion. “So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.”
Please accept our sincerest sympathies during this time. Our prayers are with all of Greg’s immediate and extend family.
Respectfully, Kevin & Catherine Hawthorne
