Thomas M. Gregorich, of Mesa, Ariz., died Tuesday, July 30, 2013.
He passed away after an eight-year battle with cancer, which he waged with courage and dignity. He was the beloved husband of Jeanette Gregorich who was at his bedside at the time of his death.
Tom was born March 26, 1944 in Park City, Utah, to his father, Anton Gregorich, and his mother, Utana Gregorich. They moved early in his childhood to Eveleth. He spent his life and successful career in cities across the United States and Canada. Tom accomplished many goals, touched many hearts, and passed on his wisdom to those around him.
He is survived by his wife, Jeanette Gregorich (Anderson) of Mesa, Ariz.; children, Mike (Kym) Gregorich of Poway, Calif., Shelby Gregorich of Long Beach, Calif., Deborah Brandt of Mesa, Ariz., Mark Gregorich of Long Beach, Calif.; four grandchildren, Kevin Gregorich, Justin Gregorich, Weston Brandt and Riley Sky Brandt; brothers, Edward (Maureen) Gregorich, Anthony (Lynn) Gregorich and David Gregorich; sisters, Lori (Geoff) Tomatz and Tina Gregorich; and aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
“Dear Tom, you are not forgotten, though on earth you are no more, still in memory you are with us, as you always were before.”
A memorial service and celebration will be held in Gilbert at a later date.
