Doyle Hayes Gregg

EDMOND —     Doyle Hayes Gregg, 92, left this world peacefully to enter into his heavenly reward on November 17, 2013. He was born June 26, 1921 to John Hiram and Ila Collier Gregg in Rockford, Ill.

    The family moved to Edmond, Okla. when his father was discharged from the Army, then moved to Dallas, Texas when Doyle was in high school. Doyle served in the U.S. Navy during World War II as a ferry pilot. After honorable discharge from the Navy, he was an independent grocer in San Francisco, Calif. and then moved his family back to Edmond, settling in The Village in Oklahoma City.

    He worked for Tom’n’Jerry Markets while attending Central State College, was a postal clerk, and then found the job he loved, air traffic controller at Will Rogers, and Wiley Post Towers. He later taught air traffic control at the FAA Aeronautical Center. He loved gardening and fishing, particularly enjoying family trips to Red River, N.M.

    Doyle was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 53 years, Mildred Sipe Gregg; his parents, Hiram and Ila Gregg; his step-mother, Ana Gregg; brothers Ward, Robert, and Harold, and sisters, Dolly Dollar and Helen Caldwell McDonald.

    He is survived by his son, John Benjamin Gregg and wife Patricia of Granbury, Texas; daughter, Karen Kay and husband, Donald J. Moore formerly of Edmond, now Coweta, Okla., and daughter, Cherry Marie and husband, James King of Oklahoma City; grandchildren Darin and Rika Jeffers, Ted and Amanda Jeffers, Jerry and Eden Moore, Rebecca Moore, Joy and John Perrin, and Ben Gregg, and step-grandchildren, Todd and Sheri King and Stacy Kauk, and 10 great-grandchildren: Derrick, Rianne, Emily, Abby, and Jack Jeffers, Whitney, Madelyn, and Ainsley Moore, and Josh, and Sam King.
