Gregory John McVeigh

BRUNSWICK — Gregory John McVeigh, 65, died Saturday, Dec. 23, 2017 at Maine Medical Center in Portland.

He was born Feb. 15, 1952 in Rochester, N.Y., the son of Raymond and Pearl Johnson McVeigh. He was a graduate of Cardinal Mooney High School, SUNY Agricultural and Technical College at Alfred, and Oklahoma State University, and later partially finished his MS degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Houston, which he put on hold once his first child was born. After graduating from Oklahoma State University, he moved to Houston to work for Brown and Root, where he met and later married Teresa Rice in Houston on Jan. 27, 1979.

He had been employed at Langford Engineering in Houston until relocating to the Brunswick area in 1987. He was most recently employed with Wright-Pierce in Topsham. He was a member of the ASCE, AWWA, and WEF professional societies and held Professional Engineering licenses throughout his career in states such as Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Oklahoma and Texas.

He was formerly an active member of St. Charles Borromeo Church, Brunswick.

He was motivated by his love and devotion to family, to which he was selflessly available as a sounding board for ideas, an extra hand for house repairs/improvements, or simply lent an ear to listen. Though he had always found enjoyment in either hiking or biking, his most recent joy lay in the anticipation of the birth of his first grandchild.

He is survived by his wife, Teresa McVeigh of Brunswick; a son, Sean McVeigh of Cedar Rapids, IA; a daughter, Meghan McBride of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia; and a sister, Tina Lynch of Raymond.

Friends and family can visit from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018 at the Brackett Funeral Home, 29 Federal Street, Brunswick. Interment will take place at a later date in Rice Cemetery, Ollie, Texas.

Memorial contributions may be made locally to The Salvation Army Bath-Brunswick, 25 Congress Avenue, Bath, ME 04530.
