Mr. Gregory Dewayne Drummond, 36, of Spartanburg County, South Carolina entered rest on October 16, 2017, at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare Hospital. Gregory attended New Testament Church. Gregory had the opportunity to enjoy one of his greatest passions in life as a cook for Buffalo Wild Wings. Most cooks would have to go to Culinary School to master the art of cooking, but not Greg. He was born with a God given talent to cook and he learned from the best, his late Grandma Minnie and his Aunt Louise. Family celebrations with Greg were so much fun and enjoyable because of his love for family and the way he always brought smiles to people faces when they tasted the delicious foods he prepared. Another one of Greg’s passions in life was his love for rap music. Greg was well known by his rap name of “Drac Gotti”. The rap music Greg made was loved and adored by both family and friends. He rapped about his real life experiences and his rap lyrics touched the souls of all of those who listened. Greg was also known for his giving heart and his compassion for people in need. To know Greg was to love Greg because he was: A faithful father, A special son, A beloved brother, A nice nephew An understanding uncle, A cool cousin, and a fearless friend. This is who he was and this is how we will all remember him.
