Gregory John Schreiber, 26, passed away on December 30th, 2018 while free diving in Panama. Gregory was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. From a young age, he fell in love with the ocean. He sailed his entire life and had a deep appreciation for the sea.

Gregory graduated from Texas A & M Galveston with a bachelor of science in Marine Transportation and a minor in Marine Administration, in 2015.

He worked for SEA CORP as acting second mate aboard the tugboat, Sea Power.   In his short life, Gregory sailed around the world, visiting more than five different countries, countless islands, and states on every coast. Gregory would spend forty-five days working on the ocean, and get right back on the water as soon as he was home. He cared for his surrounding environment, loved to free dive and sail, and would catch and cook fish for everyone he loved. He loved his family and friends greatly, and never passed on a chance to spend time with them. Gregory is survived by his parents John and Victoria, his younger siblings Alice and Michael, his nana Patricia Moss, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
