I had the honor of knowing Gene Gregory. We were in the same Police Academy class in Seminole State College.
He was a very honest, caring man devoted to his family, faith and law enforcement.
He had given me a Thank you card at the end of the Academy , thanking me for all the help I gave to the class. He was so thoughtful and I’m so glad I still have that card today.
After Graduation I was hired by the Altamonte Springs Police Department where I worked with one of his sons
“ Dusty”. His family are very kind and gracious . I send my love and Prayers to the Gregory family and to the entire SCSO.
