Gregory was born in Walnut Creek, Calif., moving to Southern Oregon at age five. Gregory graduated from St. Mary's High School in 2008 and the University of Oregon in 2013, Summa Cum Laude. Gregory was a graduate student at the California Institute of Technology. Education was Gregory's passion and teaching chemistry at the highest level was his professional calling.
Gregory enjoyed playing the saxophone, acting, raising goats and sheep as a youngster in 4-H, cartooning, trail running, and teaching others his passion for exploration and deeper understanding. Gregory touched our hearts with his endless courage, his wonderful sense of humor, his inspiring humility, his vast intellect, his authentic beauty, and his selfless devotion to others. In death, as in life, Gregory gave of himself fully to the betterment of others. His final gift of organ donation carries on this beautiful, life-giving legacy.
Gregory is survived by his mother, Joyce Emerson Graham; sister, Jennifer Ellen Harlow; and step-father, Robert A. Graham.
