Gregory A. McDonald

January 28, 1959 — June 2, 2022

Gregory Albert McDonald, 63, passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home in Southampton, PA, on June 2, 2022.

Greg was born on January 28, 1959, to the late Grace and Emmett McDonald in Philadelphia, PA. He grew up in the Northeast Philly area where he started his lifelong career of being a residential painter - a skillful, meticulous painter. He took great pride in his work, but he sure did enjoy his Break Time snacking on Wise Potato Chips and Tasty Cakes.

Family meant everything to Greg. It brought him true joy to be around his grandchildren – watching them grow and being present for their events and activities. He loved celebrating birthdays, especially his own. While he was young at heart and connected with his grandchildren with ease, he was an old soul often deep in thought reflecting on a lifetime of experiences.

Greg enjoyed the simple things in life – feeding the birds, observing the life around him, and listening to good music – especially the Allman Brothers Band. He attended many of their concerts over the years. He had a soft spot for all animals, in particular the family dogs. Greg spent quality time watching Philly sports with his family. In his younger years, he loved riding his Harley Davidson and had an appreciation for classic cars and boats. And last – but certainly not least – one of his most favorite and consistent pastimes was playing the lottery.

Greg is survived by his sisters, Darlene McDonald, and Kimberly Pommerer (Bill); his four sons, Gregory (Patti), Christopher (Cait), Michael and Matthew; and his four grandchildren, Melissa, Madeline, Callum, and Olivia – along with his nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his wife, Elizabeth, and his brother, Emmett.

As per Greg’s wishes, there will not be a formal service. His ashes will be spread at the gravesite with the love of his life, Beth.

Rest in Peace, Greg, Pop-Pop, Brother, Father, Uncle, and Friend. You were “unbelievable.” Enjoy your Break Time.
