Gregory Wayne Gobble, “The Dog Trainer”, 59, of Mocksville, NC, passed unexpectedly on May 31, 2024.

Greg was born June 15, 1964 in Davie County, NC, son of Lorean Hunt Gobble and the late Warren Darnell Gobble. Greg is also preceded in death by: his wife, Cynthia (Cindy) Gobble; a brother, Randy Gobble; grandparents, Felix and Cloyce Gobble, Tom and Sally Hunt; and special family member, Cole Kirby.

In life, Greg attended Davie County schools. Greg was a friend to all that knew him and never met a stranger. Greg was strong in his Christian faith and passed out crosses everywhere he went. He had a passion for animals and spent his time training dogs, working with cows on the farm, and riding horses. Greg worked well with machinery, and owned and operated Sheffield Grading for many years alongside his beloved brother, Randy. Greg could play instruments, enjoyed “picking” and attending concerts and festivals. He was well known in his community and made his rounds through town everyday mingling. Greg was a caretaker to many, and loved all children, especially his own son. Greg’s proudest accomplishment was being a dad and he was the very best. Greg’s second proudest accomplishment was beating cancer and he shared his testimony everywhere he went. Greg spent his days spreading joy and kindness and doing for others and was known for being dependable and reliable. Greg was of the Baptist faith and attended Ijames Baptist Church. Greg was truly one of a kind and will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to know him.

The survivors include: his pride and joy, his son, Kendall Gregory Gobble; his caring mother, Lorean Hunt Gobble of Mocksville; a sister, Charlene Ritchie (Michael) of Mocksville; nephews, Dakota Ritchie and Kolton Ritchie; great-nephew, Nash Ritchie; special cousins, Zachary Rogers and Austen Gobble; special family members, Sheila Gobble, Stephanie Kirby Long, Autumn Hoffman, Emily Sowards, Madelyn Whitt, Jessica Smith, and Debbie Hobbs; stepdaughter, Brandi Drye (Andy); stepson, Joshua Beaver; and an abundance of other relatives and close friends. It would be hard to list all the special people in Greg’s life because every person was special to him.

A visitation will be held from 4-6 p.m. at Davie Funeral Service on Saturday, June 8 and a Celebration of Life Service will be held at Ijames Baptist Church on Sunday, June 9 at 1 p.m., officiated by Pastor Alex Heafner, Pastor Kestler Ruth, and Pastor Franklin Myers. The family requests that attire for his services be the same as the informal attire you would visit Greg wearing. Pallbearers will be Kendall Gobble, Dakota Ritchie, Kolton Ritchie, Zachary Rogers, Austen Gobble and Joseph Crotts.
