Geigus and the late Andrew J. Viscuso. In addition to his mother and wife, Gregg is survived by his daughters, Tori L. Cooper (Robert), Ashley M. Viscuso and Taylor L. Viscuso; as well as two granddaughters, Grace Cooper and Claire Cooper; brother Thomas Viscuso (Linda); sisters Jayne Scamuffa (Jim) and Carol Usnik (Tim), and 9 nieces and nephews.
Gregg’s wife and best friend, Joan, will forever miss the love of her life. From the moment they met, it was love at first sight. Throughout their 32 years of marriage they were inseparable. They had date nights every week, whether at home or out. They spent hours on the porch talking about every big and little subject. They were in sync with every decision in life. The greatest show of their love was when he was sick and they spent 24 hours a day togetherloving the pain away.
Family was at the center of all Gregg did. Sunday dinners were the highlight of his week. He tailored his life and career around his girls. He spent every second he could with his three beautiful daughters. He drove them to and from school every day, he coached their every sport, and he never missed an opportunity to find a teachable moment. Then, he finally got his son when Rob came along. Their bond was strong and deep.
All his life he talked about becoming a Poppy. He wanted to do it differently, which he sure did. He visited Gracie and Claire almost every day and showered them lots of love and kisses.They are his pride and joy.
When his best friend, his father, passed away, Gregg promised he would take care of his mother, and he certainly did. His parents were always there to love and support Gregg too. He had a strong bond and love for his brother,whom he idolized, and his two sisters, whom he thought of as close friends and confidants. His in-laws became more like true siblings. He also adored and reached out often to check in on his nieces and nephews. Their well-being and happiness made him so proud.
Gregg was the best possible friend a person could have. When you became Gregg’s friend, it was for life. He kept in touch and always checked in to show how much he genuinely cared. He would drop everything to help his friends, and that love was certainly returned to Gregg in the most supportive ways.
Gregg’s life was lived following health, wellness and sports. Gregg was an avid fan of all Philadelphia sports teams. His favorite team of all was Alabama football. Roll Tide! He was “Coach” to many. He not only trained them for their sport, but often taught many life lessons along the way. Those he coached became like family to Gregg. He followed their successes and kept in touch with his athletes.
He enjoyed his 35 plus years proudly in pharmaceutical sales. He was a master of his craft. More importantly, everyone in the offices he visited lit up when he came in. He was always sure to ask everyone how they were and how their family was doing. He genuinely remembered, cared and wanted to know about each person.
Gregg enjoyed his relaxing summers in Ocean City, NJ. He loved bike riding, sitting on the beach, swimming in the ocean, and celebrating at our alley parties. He was always surrounded by neighbors that were like family, especially his little buddies.
Despite his challenging illness, he always kept his strong faith in God. His positive attitude and ability to remain hopeful was truly inspiring. His legacy will go on through all of the loved ones his wisdom touched along the way. His larger than life personality will be missed by all. There certainly is a void and vacuum left around us. His family and friends take great peace in knowing he is fully healed and restored to his perfect, strong and healthy self. Thank you, Gregg, Dad, Poppy and friend for the love and life you shared with us all. You are forever in our hearts.
