Gregory grew up on a farm in Republic, Ohio and graduated in 1968 from Republic High School.  He enlisted in the United States Marine Corp in 1968, serving in the Vietnam War from 1969 to 1970.   While in the Marines, he received the Good Conduct Medal and earned his SCUBA license. 

In 1972, he earned his private pilot’s license from Tiffin Aire Gnepper.  He played and sang music for fun and laughs and earned honorable mention for the song he wrote “Memories of Wounded Knee” in 1994.
