Gregory Michael Sum

June 20, 2014

Gregory Michael Sum, 66, of Orlando, Florida, died June 20, 2014, of Lung Disease. Greg was born in Amsterdam, New York to Anna and Stanley Sum (deceased.) Greg lived in Miami and Amsterdam; but resided most of his life in Orlando. A Mass of the Resurrection is planned for October 11, 2014 at 9:15AM at St. Mary's Church.

Greg was an avid historian, writing articles on the French and Indian wars, and Rogers Rangers. He was proud of the fact that he was born on the day that Burgoyne surrendered at Saratoga, October 17, 1777. Greg was a priest with the Diocese of Orlando for 10 years before he found his second calling which was to be a husband, father, and a teacher. Greg taught English for over 20 years in Lake County School System, retiring in 2009.

Gregory is survived by his mother Anna Sum, and his sister Mariann (Louis) LoSasso, and his nephews Louis Anthony and Michael.

Greg married Marguerite (Margie) Smith October 15, 1983. Together they raised three awesome children - Jacob Benedict Sum, Christine Gloria Sum, and Corey McGregor Sum Bejblik (Jacob Adam). Greg has one wonderful grandson, Zackery Xavier Bejblik.

In October, Greg will make his final journey via the highways and byways to Amsterdam, New York. Along the way to his family's final resting site, Greg will stop at his favorite historical sites and National Battlefields from Florida to New York.

Greg's entire family will now rest easier that he knows all the Jeopardy answers, ride with Rogers Rangers and be able to march with General Patton over the fields of Normandy.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Boy Scouts of America or the Kiwanis Club of Clermont, Florida.
