Randell Scott Gregg, age 62, a resident of rural Ft Scott, Kansas, passed away unexpectedly early Friday, August 20, 2021, at his home.
He was born March 21, 1959, in Odessa, Texas, the son of Charles L. Gregg and Joy R. Locke Gregg. Randy graduated from the Center High School in Kansas City, Missouri.
He married Barbara Diblasi on August 28, 1999.
In his younger years, Randy completed the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) in Lander, Wyoming. He loved the outdoors, camping, backpacking and being a mountaineer. He later worked for NOLS where he taught outdoor skills to the next generation. A lifelong learner, always teaching himself and others new skills such as woodworking, carpentry and photography.
Above all else, his favorite thing to do was explore the world with his beloved wife Barbara. They always shared a love for adventure. Randy and Barbara moved to Ft. Scott approximately twenty years ago to pursue a dream of organic farming. Randy enjoyed renovating their one hundred-year-old farmhouse. He was actively involved with the Ft. Scott Farmer’s Market.
Survivors include his wife, Barbara, of the home; his mother, Joy Gregg of Kansas City, Missouri; two sisters, Barbi Wood of Overland Park, Kansas and Drenda Hall of Lee’s Summit, Missouri; a brother, Mark Gregg, of Kansas City, Missouri and eight nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father.
Randy Gregg, a devoted son, brother and friend, always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. A father figure and role model to many. His passing is a great loss to all those who
