Gregory W. Pirrone, 57, of New Castle passed away on Sunday, April 11, 2021 at his home. He was born in Muncie, IN on September 3, 1963 and was the son of Emanuel & Linda (Curtis) Hicks who preceded him in death.

Greg is a graduate of Muncie Southside High School (1983). He was a talented painter who worked for several years at Walt Disney World. Most recently, he worked for more than 15 years at Brook’s Painting in Muncie.

Greg loved to fish! One of his favorite places to be was on a boat in the middle of a lake. He enjoyed watching television and attending flea markets in Strawtown and Muncie. He will be fondly remembered for his sense of humor and the nicknames (and playful harassment) that his friends and family happily endured.

Greg is survived by one sister, Doris McMahan of Portland, two sons, Tyler Hicks of Georgia and Zach Pirrone of Florida; one step-daughter, Joy Pirrone of Florida; four grandchildren; two nieces and two nephews. Greg’s loving companion of 17 years, Thelma Day of New Castle, also survives and will miss him dearly.

A celebration of Greg’s life will be held at a later date.
