Dr. Gregory A. Winteregg, 66, of Palm Harbor, Florida passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, July 13, 2021. He was born June 8, 1955, in Berne to LaMar and Joan (Habegger) Winteregg. He was married to Sandra Wacker.
He graduated from South Adams High School, received his bachelor’s degree from Indiana University and his doctorate from the IU School of Dentistry, where he was president of his class all four years. He began his dental career in Plymouth. Following several years of great success, he sold his practice to devote his time to providing professional management consulting services to tens of thousands through his unbridled passion for the dental profession. He touched people of all walks of life, helping those in need and inspiring those around him to become better human beings.
In his book titled Fun at Work, he was quoted as saying “I have a basic rule: If it’s not fun, I’m not doing it!” He encouraged everyone to always have a game in life, providing the inspiration to live a life of purpose and fulfillment, every day.
He loved adventure and speed. He fulfilled that love by racing Ferraris in Italy and Corvettes (his only car the last 40 years) at Sebring.
He was a husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, dentist, author, philanthropist, lecturer, entrepreneur and dear friend to many around the world.
He is survived by his mother; his wife; two sons, Vince (Michelle) Winteregg; and Neil (Katlin) Winteregg, daughter, Abigail (Aaron) Johnson; three grandchildren, Aidan, Ava and Griffin; brother, Jon (Cindy) Winteregg of Franklin; two nieces, Stefany (Curtis) Dolan; and Stacia (Kurtis) Jones; and uncle, Bryce (Karen) Winteregg.
He was preceded in death by his father.
A memorial service is planned for Sunday, July 25 at 2 p.m. at MGE Management Experts in St. Petersburg, Florida.
He traveled the world but dearly loved his homeland of Switzerland, where he travelled with his mom and family many times. His greatest joy was his family. He was deeply loved beyond measure and will be sorely missed all over the world. He leaves behind an incredible legacy that transformed the lives of many who were blessed to have crossed his path.
He dedicated much of his life to helping businessmen and women grow their businesses into thriving and prospering endeavors. A scholarship has been established in his name at the Hubbard College of Administration. Memorials may be made at https://gofund.me/d65d4331.
