Gebbie September 22, 1977 - January 9, 2010 Summerville, SC - Gregory James Gebbie, Lieutenant US Navy retired, age 32, died Saturday, January 9, 2010 at his home in Summerville, South Carolina after a long illness. He leaves the love of his life, Kristin Sparks Gebbie along with his two loyal Labrador companions Keyser and Mojo. He was the son of Darwin and Priscilla Gebbie, and eldest brother to Alexander, Nicholas and Christopher all of Lebanon, CT. Greg also leaves behind his grandparents, many aunts, uncles and cousins, two nephews and many friends. Born in Norwich, CT, on September 22, 1977, Greg attended the Lebanon school system where he enjoyed participating in the band, soccer and wrestling. After high school he attended the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, majoring in systems engineering and receiving his commission as a Naval submarine officer. Upon graduation from Annapolis in l999 Greg completed the Navy's nuclear power training in Charleston SC. He then received orders to serve on the USS CHICAGO (SSN 721), a fast attack submarine stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. During this period he met and married his wife Kristin of Mountain Top, PA. Throughout the time spent with the Navy, they enjoyed living in Hawaii, Louisiana and South Carolina. Upon receiving the diagnosis of his rare form of cancer in 2005, Greg chose to participate in medical studies for treatment at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. The family is very grateful for the expertise and care provided by the staff there with special thanks to Dr. Nieman. During the course of his illness both Greg and Kristin were brave and cheerful, dealing with each treatment in a positive manner. Greg and Kristin had a wonderful life together, enjoying sports, the outdoors, playing scrabble, traveling and visiting with friends. One of Greg's passions, besides the New England Patriots, was the design and installation of home theaters. Another was his love of gourmet cooking and sharing his refined recipes. Greg and Kristin enjoyed the visits from family and friends in their home and were thankful for the time spent with them. Greg loved his family and close friends, especially brother-in-law Will Bonifant and his childhood school friends known with pride as the Lebanon Boys. Neither time nor distance could erode the bond that Greg and these friends formed and maintained. They will forever cherish their memories of a reliable, generous, and remarkable man who always took all their money in poker. A memorial service celebrating Gregory's love of life will be held January 23, 2010 at 11 o'clock at the Lebanon First Baptist Church. Donations may be made to the Gregory James Gebbie Scholarship Fund, C/O The Savings Institute, 554 Exeter Road, Lebanon, CT. 06249.
