Cregg Alton Andrews, of Raleigh N.C. passed away March 13, 2010 at the age of 65.

He was born September 28, 1944, in Alamance County, NC to Alton and Lucille Andrews. Cregg is survived by his wife of 43 years, Eva Morris Andrews, his daughter, Tambra of Raleigh, NC, a son, Tony and Linda of Raleigh and a son, Tommy and Michelle of Rolesville, NC. Five grandchildren, Brittnie, Jesse, Bryson, Caitie and Allie.

After four years in the Navy, Cregg was employed for thirty years by the railroad, CSX Transportation. After being injured, he took an early retirement.

Cregg was full of life and never seemed to meet a stranger. His ability to remember and tell jokes entertained many over the years. He loved riding his motorcycle, camping and boating. The family spent many years camping at Kerr Lake, the mountains, the beach and then at Lake Gaston where close friendships were made. After the grandchildren came along, he turned his attention to spoiling them. After his retirement, they became the focus of his enjoyment.

Cregg's strong will and sense of humor never faltered, even as it became apparent that he was losing his battle with lung cancer. He passed in the home surrounded by his family.

Memorial service will be held Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 2:00 PM at Brown-Wynne Funeral Home, 1701 E. Millbrook Rd., Raleigh, NC. His family will receive friends at the funeral home following the service.

"I met Cregg many years ago. He was known by his hunting buddies in Granville County as "Railman" and "Railroad". We always knew when he was near as he would..." Mike Norwood (Oxford, NC)
