Edgar Edward Gregeris, also known as Ed or Poppop, passed away in his sleep on Sunday, May 21st, 2023. Ed was born on May 27th, 1943, in Kaunas, Lithuania, to Luidas and Rosalia Gregeris. He spent his early life moving due to the Russian occupation of Lithuania. Once settling permanently in the U.S., Ed received a B.A. in Foreign Languages and Mathematics and Electrical Engineering at Southern Illinois University, where he met his future wife, Jeramae Clark. They were married on July 29th, 1967. In 1965 he joined the Navy as an officer and rose to Lt. Commander, serving three tours during the Vietnam War on the USS Enterprise. He then went on to receive a M.S. in Computer Systems Management at the Naval Postgraduate school and continued to serve our country as the Assistant Head of Computer Operations for the Naval command systems. He retired from the Navy in 1974 and pursued a career in computer system operations as well as focused on his already growing family. Ed was an adventurer as he enjoyed a wide variety of hobbies including scuba diving, skiing, hiking, rollerblading, and reading. Not only did he enjoy these things, but he loved to share these hobbies with his 5 children and later 5 grandchildren. He will be dearly missed and in our hearts always. Ed is survived by his wife of 55 years, Jeramae, his children Kristina Stites (Greg), Ryan Gregeris, Michael Gregeris (Margaret), Jaclyn Gregeris, Eric Gregeris (Jennifer), and 5 grandchildren Emily, Carlin, Johnathon, Mykolas, and Maya.

Memories Timeline


  1. Wonderful man with an amazing history and I am so glad to have known him. One of my favorite memories is the arrival of Brutus Ali to Virginia, with a short stay at our house while yours was made ready. My Dad awakened in the middle of the night and got up, becoming trapped in his office the rest of the night because Brutus, a true sweetheart of a Doberman, believed he was also the protector of his family even while in our home. Ed and Jeri just smiled with pride the next morning. ❤️
    God bless the entire Gregeris family.

  2. Dear Jeramae I am thinking of all of you and remembering the times we spent with you.
    God bless you.
    Love Alice

  3. Ed worked for me at Boeing. He was one of the smartest guys I knew. Great guy. Very sorry to hear of his passing. Joe Supplee

  4. So sorry for your loss. His “old” co-workers will always remember him fondly-dedicated, hard working, but never took himself too seriously. – The Family Krahulec

  5. I didn’t know Ed but I know he must have been a great guy because you married him, Jeri. You are a strong person and you will get thru this. You and Ed had many good years together and many good memories. I am thinking of you and my heart goes out to you.
    Love you,

  6. I am so sorry for your loss Jeri. I had the pleasure of working with Ed for many years – he was a great engineer and a wonderful man. He was the self proclaimed “grumpy old man” on the projects, but really was a sweetheart! I loved working with him and have many fond memories to include his conviction that margaritas have medicinal value – which of course I totally agreed with! Ed will be missed. Prayers and hugs to you and your family.

  7. My heartfelt condolences to Jeri and family. Ed will truly be missed. Our sons brought our families together and a wonderful friendship developed. Ed will be missed but left a family legacy that will carry on his memories…I keep you all in my heart and send love , prayer and hugs…❤️. …Cynthia Mayer
