Gregory retired from Ineos USA, LLC, formally B.P. Chemical Company as a Chemical Operator.  He graduated from Lima Senor High School and attended Lima Technical College. He was a member of Fourth Street Missionary Baptist Church, he often spoke of how easy it is to be a fisher of men while surrounded by all Gods beauty and wonders of the world.  Gregory was one of the best fisherman in Lima, Ohio, he started fishing as a youth and dreamed of being in tournaments and becoming a professional.  He educated other fisherman about the sport.  His smile was like beaming sunlight as he told fishing stories.  He loved telling stories to his granddaughters or anyone that would listen.  He was not a stranger to anyone.  He loved to laugh and make others laugh.

Besides his loving wife Cheryl, he leaves to cherish his precious memory a son; Gregory H. Ward, II (Tiffany) of Lima.  A daughter; Nakia M. Ward of Lima.  4 grandchildren; KiAysha, Anyjah, Kamryn and Alexis. A host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
