WILMINGTON — Gregory Lee “Greg” Matheson passed away early Saturday morning, March 20, 2021. Greg was the proud father of Hendrix Lee Matheson, 8; and husband to Courtney Lee Matheson for 12 years.
In addition to his wife and son, Greg leaves behind his parents, the Rev. Gary Lee Matheson and Wanda Laws Matheson of Bee Mountain Ridge Road, Lenoir; brother, Kevin Matheson, and sister-in-law, Crystal Matheson; niece, Kierston Matheson; nephew, Keegan Matheson; sister, Andrea Page; brother-in-law, Rodney Page; cousin, Erica Laws; aunts, Maxine Matheson and Barbara Hawkins; and many cousins and innumerable friends.
Greg was a passionate family man, musician, historian, traveler, mixologist, sports enthusiast, wrestler and penultimately a friend to everyone he encountered. He made his home in the place he felt most content, the beach. Greg leaves an enormous void in the hearts of those here in Caldwell County and in his adopted home, Wilmington.
A private memorial service for the family will be held Wednesday, March 24, at the City Club of Wilmington, where he served as general manager. A public celebration of Greg’s life will be held from noon to 6 p.m., Saturday, March 27, outdoors at the Goat and Compass and adjacent promenade, 710 N 4th St., Wilmington.
