Gregory H. McTigue

Gregory H. McTigue, of Milton and Nantucket, passed away May 23, 2018.

Beloved son of Susan (Wilkins) McTigue and the late Hugh J. McTigue of Milton, brother of Gretchen A. McTigue of Milton and Uncle of Phoebe A. McTigue of Milton.  Greg leaves his faithful sidekick, his Chocolate Lab, Chance and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Greg was a celebrated athlete who collected an impressive number of accolades over his career, in both high school and college.  One of Greg’s most cherished moments was playing for Coach Goodless, and winning the 1988 Basketball State Championship at the Boston Garden.  Greg was proudly inducted into the Milton High School Hall of Fame for both being a member of this celebrated basketball team and for being an overall standout athlete in 3 sports (football, basketball and baseball).  Greg continued his football career at Stonehill College where he was a member of the 1991 ECFC Championship team and a conference all-star wide receiver for two consecutive years.

Greg had a successful technology sales career, most recently at HP Enterprise, where he just celebrated being a top 1% performer at HP in 2017.  Greg’s outgoing personality, natural leadership and his zest for life surely contributed to his many successes.

Greg loved the beach and the ocean, especially at sunset. He was most happy, relaxing at his home in Nantucket, hosting and entertaining friends and family.  He will be missed tremendously by so many but, most significantly by his niece Phoebe Ann; as she soon hits the fields and courts, hopefully with her uncle’s phenomenal athletic abilities, drive and determination.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in Saint Gregory Church, 2215 Dorchester Avenue, Wednesday May 30 at 11:30 AM. Relatives and friends invited. Visiting hours at Dolan Funeral Home, 460 Granite Avenue, EAST MILTON SQUARE, Tuesday 4-8 PM. Interment Milton Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Greg’s memory to The Milton High Boosters Club, P.O. Box 375, Milton, MA 02186.
