Gregory Joseph (“Gregg”) Fleck, of Hull, died unexpectedly on Dec. 16. He was 35.
The third child of Gregory and Patricia (McBride) Fleck, he was a lifelong resident of Hull. He grew up with two older brothers, Michael and Thomas, and his younger sister, Elizabeth.
Gregg had an infectious love about him from the time he came into this world. He had many nicknames: Chico, Red-Dog, Little Gregg, Hi-O among them. Growing up in Hull, he cherished all the relationships he formed in life. He battled at “The Gut” on the football field with his friends, the “‘O’ Street Gang,” as they called themselves. He taught himself to skate and became a hockey player. He learned the drums, marching with the school band. He gave himself to everything he ever set out to do.
He was called to the ocean at a young age and was a skilled lobsterman, learning the trade from many, including his father and his cousin, Johnny Fleck. He loved being out on the water.
Gregg was a Friend of Bill and battled alcoholism and addiction. In recovery he was surrounded by love and support. Ultimately, his disease proved too deadly, and he was called home to God. His infectious, loving spirit will continue to live within all who knew him. His whole life he exemplified the spiritual principle of service, always willing to help anyone and everyone in need. He survives and is remembered as this.
Gregg is survived by his loving parents, Patricia and Gregory Fleck, of Hull; his brother Michael; his brother Thomas and his wife, Jessica, and their children, Delia, Louise, and Zelda, of Norwell; and his sister, Elizabeth Burns, and her children, Hattie and Bernie, of Hingham. He also leaves many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins; supportive friends; and dedicated mentors whose lives he touched throughout his own short life.
Gregg’s funeral Mass was celebrated privately, with limited attendance, at St. Mary’s Parish in St. Ann’s Church, Hull, on Dec. 23. A Celebration of Life will be planned for the warmer summer months.
