Gregor F. Scheu, born March 9, 1940, third of seven children of Otto and Elizabeth (100 years old) of Frauenfeld, Switzerland, passed away suddenly on June 12, 2009. He started with aircraft model building, then flying at an early age. He graduated from engineering school, married childhood sweetheart, Vreni Marty, and moved to the United States in 1967. He was co-founder of Mill-Max Mfg. Corp., retiring in 2005, when he moved to Florida for the winter. His interest in flying his seaplane, fishing on the bay and walking his Labrador kept him in everyone’s conversation.
Arrangements were made by the Francis P. DeVine Funeral Home, Oyster Bay. A memorial service will be held at the First Presbyterian Church, E. Main St., on June 26 at 4 p.m. Refreshments to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Boys Club of Oyster Bay/East Norwich, Cradle of Aviation or Friends of the Bay.
