We are sad to announce the passing of Bruce Brian Gregoric of Trenary, Michigan on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 at the age of 59. Bruce died at his home under the care of loved ones and North Woods Hospice after a sudden, but very brief, battle with cancer. Bruce was born in Cleveland, Ohio on October 24, 1963 to Joseph John Gregoric and Clara Nell Gregoric (nee Lott). He lived in Cleveland throughout his childhood into his teenage years. At the age of 17, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee where he worked at ComData in maintenance for several years, and learned the HVAC trade. While at ComData he met his wife Kathleen Gregoric (nee Reeves). Bruce and Kathy married April 6th, 1985. They had four children. Bruce and Kathy subsequently moved to Dickson, TN where Bruce worked for Soll's Appliance Sales & Repair. After several years, Bruce and his family moved to Battle Creek, Michigan in 1995. Kathy and Bruce separated in 2003 (official divorce in 2013). In 2005, Bruce met Janet Eberhard with whom he would spend his remaining years. In 2020, Janet and Bruce moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and other than a short stint back in Battle Creek in 2016, that is where he would live until his death. Bruce enjoyed being at home and enjoyed watching movies and NASCAR. He was an avid Cleveland sports team fan, especially the Cleveland Browns football team.
Bruce is survived by his four children Brittany Rachel Gregoric, Nicholas Cameron Gregoric, Joseph John Gregoric, and Jacob Scott Gregoric; his longtime companion - Janet Eberhard and her children Melody, Larry, Vickie, Christopher, and Chuck; and his two sisters –Danette (David) Reiff, Deedra Parker and his three grandchildren Jade Gregoric, 16, Korbin Gregoric, 10 and Elijah Gregoric, 5; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and additional extended family.
