Gregory “Greg” A. Mehrings, 83, of North Aurora, IL., passed away on Saturday, August, 8, 2020 at Seasons Hospice in Naperville, IL.  Greg was born on May 30, 1937 in Chicago, IL., the son of Arthur and Barbara (nee.

Greg graduated in 1955 from St. Gregory’s High School in Chicago.  He met his future wife and lifelong companion in 1962 through his sister-in-law. 

In Greg’s earlier years, he was a member of the Knights of Columbus.  He enjoyed bowling, roller skating and water skiing at his family’s summer home.  It is there where he taught his children, nieces and nephews how to water ski at an early age.

Greg worked as a computer operations manager for 34 years at the Henry Pratt Company, retiring in 2000.  After retiring, Greg enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and going to their many sporting events.  He was an active member of Blessed Sacrament Parrish and was an usher for over 20 years. 

Even in his later years, when his health was not great, he always enjoyed spending time with the family and the many conversations that took place over the holidays. 

He will be missed by all.
