July 15, 1983 - Jan. 22, 2019
Dillon James Gregor, 35, died on Jan. 22, 2019 in Wausau. Dillon was born to Laura Gregor in Milwaukee on July 15, 1983. When Dillon was six, they moved to Wausau; then later moved to Merrill, where they made their home for approximately 15 years. Dillon then moved back to Wausau, where he spent the rest of his life.
Dillon attended Merrill High School for a number of years, then went to Blackwell Job Corps, where he attained his GED and basic construction training, and later attended NTC in Wausau, where he graduated from the Welding Program. He spent a number of years doing construction work, then moved on to welding after graduation.
Dillon had a wide variety of interests, including video gaming, biking, fishing, camping, cooking, eating, listening to music, reading and just hanging with his many friends. He loved animals and would care for any strays he found over the years, and doted on his iguana.
Dillon loved to laugh, to make other people laugh and had a great sense of humor. He was a very caring individual and was always willing to lend a hand when asked.
He is survived by his mom, Laura (Mike Schneider), Phillips; his grandma Kay Theilman, also of Phillips; many, many aunts, uncles and cousins from all over the state; and many friends he made during his lifetime.
He was preceded in death by his great-grandparents, Robert and Doris Gregor and George and Fern Cvengros; his grandpa Dale, grandpa Bob, great-uncle Bob, uncle Michael and cousins Luke Gregor, infant Connor Gregor and infant Isabella Leighton.
Generations Funeral Home, Tomahawk, assisted the family with arrangements and the cremation.
