Gregory Pettiford, Jr.

July 16, 1985 — May 4, 2019

Gregory Dean Pettiford II was born in Philadelphia, PA on July 16, 1985 to Gregory Dean Pettiford and Margo Rainey. Gregory departed this life on May 4th, 2019 at the age of 33.

Gregory, affectionately known as Greg or Ti to his friends, was the second of three children. He received his education in the Philadelphia school system. Greg loved art and drawing. He also loved collecting sneakers and sunglasses. Often you would see him looking fresh and walking oh so cool as to not put creases in his sneakers. Gregory was an avid Dallas Cowboys fan and would defend his Cowboys at all costs. He was also skillful at cutting hair and was the neighborhood barber for many friends and family members.

Greg was also a great father. He loved spending time with his daughter Amirah. There was nothing that he wouldn’t do for her. He loved to take her bike riding, to the movies, to Burger King, and to get water ice. But what he loved most was showering his baby girl with hugs and kisses.

Gregory leaves to cherish his memory: his father Gregory Dean Pettiford; mother Margo Rainey-Watson; step-father Darryl Watson; grandmother Emma Rainey; daughter Amirah Jubilee; sister Danielle Rainey; brother Aaron Pettiford; a special lady Lisa Bowman; step-sisters Erica Watson, Angeline Watson; Kimberly Watson; step-brother Darryl Watson Jr. He also leaves to cherish his memory a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Lovingly Submitted,

The Family
