Calvin Newton "Newt" Gregory Jr., 67, of Hagerstown, Md., passed away Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016, at his home.
Born Aug. 8, 1949, in Martinsburg, W.Va., he was the son of Jean (Sensel) Gregory of Berkeley Springs, W.Va. and Calvin N. Gregory Sr.
Newt was a free-spirited man who loved the open road. His passion for new adventures led him to a fulfilling career as a truck driver for 44 years. He was a dedicated employee and won the safety award for his many years of safe driving.
He had a great love for country music, Western movies and his truck.
He had a vast collection of memorabilia reflecting his passions, which he spent many hours enjoying with family and friends.
Newt had a unique personality, filled with love and laughter.
He had a great love for his family and his pets. He openly gave love to everyone, not always because he had to, but because that's who he was.
This is not the end of his journey, it is just the beginning. Newt will continue to travel the open roads of our beautiful country in the hearts of each of his family members and friends.
