Gregg Libecap died at Banner Medical Center Sept. 3, 2012 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He had lived in Susanville since 1963, graduating from Lassen High in 1966. He immediately joined the army and was in Viet Nam in the Engineer Corps. This was his defining experience. He was badly wounded and eventually received a medical discharge and returned to Susanville.
Complications from the injuries followed him throughout his life. But he was an avid fisherman, loved his dogs and was adored by his niece Sarah and nephew Cap.He had many, many friends in Susanville, and they will miss him. He loved them all. Gregg was preceded in death by his mother Lois Libecap and father Don Libecap, both of Susanville.
He is survived by his brother, Gary, of Santa Barbara and Seeley Lake, Mont., who misses him deeply. A family ceremony will be held in Montana later this fall.
