In memory of Joey Gregg

Created by Family Of Joey Gregg

Joey Gregg

On December 20, 2003 my 21-year-old brother took his own life. He was addicted to crack. He wanted to be clean, and he hated the person he had become with the drug use. His addiction started with weed, then coke, then crack. He has a son named Michael who is now 10. Michael is currently being raised by our parents because Michael’s mother is also addicted to crack. My brother’s death has broken all of our hearts and now my sister is using heroin. She is trying to tell us that she is not addicted. I feel so helpless with the situation. I really hate drugs. I loved my brother so much. It hurts just as much today as it did the night I got the phone call telling me he passed away.


This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.

Joey is my little brother and I miss him so much. I hate DRUGS more then anything in this life. I just tell myself Joey is at peace now and I will be with him again. I was just with Amy which brings such joy to me because I know he loved her to death.

Lisa my heart goes out to you and Joey's family. It seems the swetest people get taken by this drug. My son had so many people who loved him and now he is just a memory to them, a good memory but still just a memory. Hang on to your memories they make you strong and keep you going. Talk about your friend that will keep him alive. God's peace be with you.
