Obituary

Michael Francis Grego
Michael was born on August 3, 1951 in Hazelton, PA. He graduated from Wyoming Valley West High School in Kingston, PA in 1969. He then went on to earn a bachelors degree from the Penn State University College of Communications in 1973. Just before his college graduation, Michael met his future wife, Lauren Anne Harris, while working at Pomeroy’s Department Store. He then left home to start a career in journalism, working for the PA Legislature as a speech writer and on a state wide governor campaign.
After dating for five years, Michael asked Lauren to marry him. They married in 1978 in West Pittston, PA. Michael earned his MS in Communications from Shippensburg University. He worked for the Russell National Bank for five years until eventually starting his own advertising agency in 1983. He worked as a self-employed ad consultant for over thirty years. Michael constantly had to evolve his business, working in meeting management, association management, marketing, and teaching at Penn State University Park.
He is predeceased in death by his parents Joseph A. and Kathryn (Salzer) Grego. He is survived by the love of his life, Lauren (Harris); daughter, Kimberly (Wayne) Kauffman of Burnham; sons, Paul (Pamela) of Mechanicsburg and David of Lewistown; granddaughters Sarah (Joshua) Cram, Megan Rodriguez, Kiara Noland, and Grace Kauffman; great granddaughter Kaylee Cram and great grandson Kaiden Cram; brothers, Mark and Martin (Carol) Grego; nephews Eric (Katie) and Kyle Grego. His family was his world. Mike was an avid Eagles and Penn State fan and enjoyed golf and tennis. Mike was an active volunteer in our community, working with Mifflin County 2000, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, the Friends of the Mifflin County Library, Santa’s Bookbag, and was the first president of the Juniata Valley Striders. He was devoted member of Grace United Methodist Church in Lewistown.
Private arrangements are under the care of The King-Barr Funeral Home LLC, 120 Logan Street, Lewistown.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to: The Mifflin County Library, 123 N Wayne St, Lewistown PA 17044, Grace United Methodist Church, 101 Logan St, Lewistown PA 17044, and the American Cancer Society, 342 S Logan Blvd, Burnham PA 17009.

Sincere condolences from our family to you and yours, as we share the loss of our friend, neighbor, colleague and mentor. Memories from the early days, when we shared times together with Lauren, Mike and Kim; and Mike and Jim worked at RNB, our lives paralleled as each of our families grew and we became neighbors and our sons shared as students at IVHS. “The Circle of Life” has come to pass with the loss of Mike, we are eternally blessed to have known the Mike and his beloved family, personally and professionally. Our love, prayers and blessings are with each of you through these most difficult times.❤️🙏🏻😇

My condolences to Michael's family. Even though he and I met late in life, it always seemed like we had known each other forever. He was a good man.

Dear Lauren, Deeply saddened to hear of Mike's passing. Great memories of our shenanigans together in band at WVW. I didn't always agree with him politically, but I know we shared a common bond in our love for Christ. I am grateful for our 50th high school class reunion. Not only did I get to see him again but I got to meet you. It was obvious to all that he had a deep love for you and the family. I was deeply touched when he wrote to me back in early June and asked me to pray for him and his illness. The Holy Spirit had brought to mind Mike, you and your family many times since then. Mike has now fought the good fight and finished the race. He kept the the faith. He is now receiving a crown of righteousness which the LORD himself is awarding him. He has received a healing which can never be reversed. May God strengthen you and comfort you and your family as we grieve for you and your loss.
