I am heartbroken to announce the death of our father, Gregory Allen Vermillion, better known as Big Greg, who unexpectedly passed away at the age of 65 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
His journey began on June 1, 1957 in Cleveland, Ohio. His parents were Ida B. Denham and Charles Vermillion. He was a resident of Virginia Beach for almost 30 years but his hometown was in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was a lifelong, proud Bengals fan who loved Cincinnati chili. He worked as a skilled roofer and owned his own roofing business for many years. He met his former wife when he was 21 and was married in 1984. They went on to have three beautiful children whom he was very proud of.
Greg enjoyed watching a good football game, while eating wings, pizza, or peel and eat shrimp. In his earlier years, if he wasn’t working on a roof, you could often find him out by his pool, with his dog, Snoopy, cracking jokes, listening to the Rolling Stones and drinking a cold beer. Before he passed he was able to witness the Bengals make it to the Super Bowl, give his daughter away at her wedding and spend his days sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee while watching his youngest granddaughter live her first year of life.
Greg leaves to cherish his loving memory his three children (and spouses), Ashley Buxton (Johnnie), Gregory Vermillion (Becky), and Houston Vermillion (Val); their mother, Dena Vermillion; seven grandchilren, Halie, Carson, Mariah, Andrew, Logan, Gabriella and Ava; and his four sisters, Nancy, Donna, Cyndie and Laura.
A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 at 12:00 PM, 5033 Rouse Dr., Virginia Beach, VA 23462.
Bless you all during this time! ❤️❤️
Love you all
R.I.P. my dear friend
