Gregory C. Herzog

1956 - 2021

Bel Air


Gregory C. Herzog, of Bel Air, MD, passed away on 9 March 2021 at 64 years of age. Born and raised in Kingsville, MD, Greg served as a Merchant Marine for over 30 years and always spoke fondly of his times at sea. He was a history enthusiast, a fan of baseball and football, and a lover of dogs. Greg is survived by his daughter, Lauren Ziegler; his siblings, Lawrence, Janice, and Mark; sister-in-law Christine; brother-in-law Mark Vyrros; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins whose lives he followed avidly on social media. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Harford County Humane Society. A memorial service will take place at Highview Memorial Gardens in Fallston at a later date; but for now, please listen to your favorite Beatles album or watch an episode of The Andy Griffith Show in his honor – they were his favorites.

Sea Fever
By John Masefield

I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

I am thankful for all you taught me and the memories we shared. When I think of you, I think of driving around in your red pick-up truck when I was a kid, going on hikes with our Dalmatian Gunther, hearing your stories about your family and growing up in Kingsville, and scuba diving with you in Cozumel. I wish you could have met your first grandchild, who arrives later this spring, but I know you will be watching them grow up from above. I love you, Daddy.

To Greg's family,
I piece of family has been lost. I will always cherish Christmas day at the Herzog's back in the 1960's. I especially remember the train set up and the fancy meal around the dining room table.
Rest in peace. Until we meet again.

To his sweet Daughter,  The time is never right to have a loved one depart from their life and especially from yours.  Hold him dear, choose a memory, build it to a tiny story and share it with his grandchild....he will know and you will be comforted.   Always remember there are those who have loved you Lauren, and lose who continue to do so.
Ms. Michele & Mr. Jack
