Nicholas “Gregg” Dunphy

January 15, 1941 - April 13, 2017

Nicholas Gregory “Gregg” Dunphy, age 76, a Florida resident since 1980, formerly of Toledo, OH passed away Thursday, April 13, 2017 in Hospice. He was born January 15, 1941 in Toledo, OH to Nicholas and Loretta Dunphy, now deceased.

Gregg was a man who could fix, or make nearly anything from cars to furniture; and built condos on Pine Island Florida. He loved fishing and golf. He remained proud of the award he received for bravery as a firefighter in Toledo, when he was a younger man; but, more than anything, he loved his family and was proud of his beautiful daughter and two sons.

He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Sandra (Sandi) Dunphy of Cape Coral, FL; three children, Nicholas Dunphy of Manhattan, NY, Holly Marvin and husband Jim of Lithia, FL and Daniel Dunphy and wife Jacqueline of Gainesville, FL; two grandchildren Kathryn Marvin and Emily Marvin; as well as two great grandchildren, Grayden and Benjamin.

Gregg was preceded in death by his younger brother Gaylord Dunphy in March.

At the end, he gathered his family around him and told them once more how much he loved them, and how very lucky he felt he was. He passed that night in his sleep with no words unspoken and no regrets.

In lieu of contributions, please celebrate Greg’s life with a song, a drink, and a remembrance of his valediction, “You’ve got to enjoy every moment, the good and the bad times.”

A private Wake will be held for the immediate family.
