Gregory J. Meck, age 66, of Maumee, passed away Sunday, July 6th, 2019 at Cayuga Medical Center, Ithaca, New York. He was born May 21st, 1953 in Toledo to Chester and Florence (Schetter) Meck. Greg was a 1971 graduate of St. Johns Jesuit High School and went on to attend The Ohio State, where he majored in Journalism.
After college Greg entered into his longtime career as a Sales Executive. He found out early on that what he loved doing most was getting to know and care for people. Greg was well-known and respected in the Auto Sales Industry, receiving many awards and recognition, most recently the Mark of Excellence Award through Taylor Cadillac.
Greg began his career at the former Bob Schmidt Chevrolet in Maumee, working there for 14 years. He continued his career with Taylor Cadillac for the next 28 years, just recently vowing to work less and enjoy more time with the love of his life, his wife Anne. Greg and Anne enjoyed traveling to areas all over the United States, wherever Greg could play a good game of golf, have a cold beer and watch an entertaining football or Detroit Tiger baseball game.
In addition to his parents, Chester and Florence, he was preceded in death by sister, Phyllis Meck-Emery; brother, James Meck and nephew, Eric Meck.
