It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Gregg Allen Sweeney, born in Newburyport, MA on January 3, 1971. He died of natural causes on June 28, 2021 at his home in Wilmington, NC. Gregg grew up in the Amesbury and Newburyport area.
He graduated from Amesbury High School and studied at Northern Essex Community College. Gregg was a hard worker with many careers in his lifetime; including landscaping, real estate, rental properties, outside sales, and before moving to North Carolina, proudly owned a Napa Auto Parts store in Salisbury, MA. He was fearless in his business ventures, always ready for the next challenge. Gregg was friendly, outgoing, and a big personality. If you were lucky enough to be his friend, he would do anything for you. Gregg liked cars and most anything with a motor. He loved animals, especially dogs, which brought him a lot of happiness.
Despite his own challenges, Gregg was incredibly proud of his two children, Nicholas Sweeney and Gillian Sweeney of Newbury, MA. He was also survived by his father Kevin Sweeney and wife Kate of Newburyport, MA; his mother Linda Rowe of Exeter, NH; a sister Paula Sears and husband Michael of Exeter, NH; a step-sister Michele McKeon-Stanton and husband Mike of Newburyport, MA; as well as his aunts, uncles, nieces, and many friends. Gregg will be sorely missed.
