Hunsicker, Michael Gregory (Greg) of St. Peters, MO, passed away on Wednesday, December 26, 2018.

He is survived by his mother, Mary M. Hunsicker, children Christina, Matthew, and Michael Hunsicker, his sister Mary Jo Blaze (Steve Blaze), her children, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his father Richard Hunsicker.

Greg was born October 30, 1961, in Winfield, KS. The family moved to St. Charles in 1966.

Greg went through the St. Charles education system, graduating from St. Charles West in 1980. He attended William Jewell College for a year, then joined the United States Marine Corp. Greg was extremely proud of being a Marine and made many life-long friends there. Following his discharge, he returned to the St. Charles area where he started his career in the plastic industry. He was the Quality Control Manager for both Continental Sprayers and Production Products.

Greg played ice hockey on the first team organized in St. Charles, beginning in elementary school, and continuing through high school. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting, target practice, and riding his Harley. Shortly before his diagnosis he and a Marine buddy took a 2500 mile motorcycle ride through the Mid-West to Sturgis, SD.

Greg was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, in September of 2017. He lost a courageous and hard-fought battle to defeat this horrible disease.

    I know one day the pain of your death will subside, but the hole in my heart left by you leaving will never heal. I miss you so much. So many things I wanted to tell you that went unsaid. I’m so thankful you are whole, healthy, and happy in the company of so many friends and family members who have gone ahead of you. Always remember how much I love you. Until we meet again….Mother

    Mary, my dear friend, please know that my prayers continue for you in this unimaginable loss. I wish that I’d known Greg, and know from you that he was a devoted father and marine and great guy.
    I pray that you find peace in knowing that Greg is with the Lord.

    Much Love,

    To my dear friend Mary-

    I continue to pray for your peace and healing, and know that , even though the hole in your heart will never completely heal, that your faith will sustain you and knowing that your beloved Greg is with God, will get you through the dark times.

    Although I never had the opportunity to meet Greg, I feel that I know him through your words, and know that you will see him again in heaven.

    Love,

    Gail

    Sorry for your Mom’s, his children and your lost Mary. Greg was one of the two best people that ever worked for me at Continental Sprayers. Loyal without question,extremely smart,always got the job done and a great father. I will miss him and will continue to think of Greg as my life goes on. His life was just too short.
