Nov. 14, 1933 — Dec. 8, 2012
Orville E. Gregerson was born in northern Badger, Minn. He was the third of 14 children born to Gilmore and Alice Gregerson.
When he turned 18, he joined the Army and was stationed in Germany from 1954-1956. He was very proud to have served his country. He returned home and moved to Ortonville, Minn., where he met and married Dorothy Johnson.
In 1965, the family moved to Washington. He worked for Rognlin’s Construction until 1982, where he enjoyed working construction and running heavy equipment. He made many lifelong friends while living in Grays Harbor. The last three years of his life, he had the blessing of seeing his three grandchildren every day: Drake, Kylie and Kyndra Rademacher. They were the joy of his life!
He is survived by daughters Kathy Gregerson (JD Keys), Karen (Tom Jr.) Hranac and Kelly (Tom) Rademacher, and 11 brothers and sisters.
He was preceded in death by a daughter, Karla Gregerson.
A celebration of his life will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, at the Elks Lodge on Boone Street in Aberdeen.
