Paul Gregor, 73 passed away peacefully at his home in Satellite Beach, Fl., Saturday, August 21, 2021. Born in Standesamt Villich, Austria, he came to America via Ellis Island, with his mother, Marie Schitikow Shein (now deceased) and was raised in New Jersey.
Paul was a United States Navy Veteran and served during the Vietnam War. In 1982 Harris Corporation transferred Paul and his family from New Jersey to Florida.
Paul worked very hard providing for his family while continuing to pursue his education at the University of Central Florida, where he obtained his Electrical Engineering degree. During his career he worked for Harris Corporation, L3 and retired from DRS as a senior electrical engineer.
He is survived by his wife, Nadean C. Gregor, his children Paul D. Gregor, Merritt Island, Fl., Kristen R. Gregor, Palm Bay, Fl., Edward R. Gregor, Cocoa Beach, Fl., Eric D. Wildman, Viera, Fl., Victoria C. McDavid, West Melbourne, Fl., nine grandchildren, and one upcoming great grandchild. Also Edward & Joan Lehnert, Cocoa, Fl., his in-laws (who he considered his best friends).
Paul had a passion for family get-togethers, his pets, riding his Harley, tinkering on his 1984 BMW, house projects, traveling, Margaritas, Sangria, eating all types of food, music, singing to the 60’s sounds, dancing and teaching his grandchildren how to play pool. He was a spiritual person and enjoyed attending the Methodist Church in Satellite Beach, Fl.
Paul will be remembered by his family and friends as a man who inspired and amazed them with his kind and gentle nature, his strong love of life, his sense of humor, his sparkling blue eyes and we cannot forget his million dollar smile.
