Life Story / Obituary


Greg Anderegg passed away on April 12th , following complications from an extensive surgery in late January. Greg was born on March 8th, 1955 in LaCrosse, WI to Dwaine and Virginia (Williams) Anderegg. His family moved to Racine when Greg was five years old and he considered himself a Racine native. He attended Wadewitz Elementary School, Jerstad-Agerholm Junior High (in the AT Program) and graduated from Horlick High School in 1972. He was a UW-Parkside graduate, as well.

On August 18th, 1979, he married the love of his life, Carol Zimmerman. Just a month later, he took a part-time job with SC Johnson as a tour guide while working full-time at Taylor Children’s Home with recently adjudicated youth. A year later, he took the opportunity to move to work full-time at SC Johnson and the rest was history. Greg worked in Public Relations/ Community Relations for all but three of his 36 years at SC Johnson, retiring in July 2015 as Director-Global Community Affairs. He was very interested in Frank Lloyd Wright and the history of SC Johnson, leading tours for special corporate guests and dignitaries, until the end of his career. After retirement from SC Johnson, he lived out his passion as a consultant with the Johnson Foundation at Wingspread.

He valued that his job involved connecting the company with the community that he loved so much. Because of the nature of his work, he was deeply involved with many local organizations and non-profits, including Rotary International, Society’s Assets, Downtown Racine Corp., RAMAC, Racine Theatre Guild, Racine Community Foundation, Wisconsin Humane Society, St. Monica’s Senior Living, UW-Parkside Foundation, Racine Art Museum, All Saints Foundation, Racine Area United Way, to name a few.

Greg’s greatest love, however, was family. He loved growing up in a family with four boys. He and Carol built a family of their own, but with girls this time. He was an amazing husband and much adored dad. He was exceedingly proud of his daughters. The family took a vacation every summer, usually two weeks in the minivan visiting a different corner of the US. Travel was a very important part of Greg’s life, beginning in childhood. He visited 49 US states (never made it to Alaska) and 34 foreign countries. He also enjoyed golfing, reading about current events, and talking politics with friends.

Greg is survived by his wife Carol, daughters Samantha Anderegg-Boticki (Eric Boticki) and Danielle Anderegg, brothers Terry (Sue) Anderegg and Rex (Coral Mateu-) Anderegg, sister-in-law Roberta Anderegg, mother-in-law Doris Zimmerman, brother-in-law Brent Genke, six nephews and two nieces and a wealth of friends who were like family to him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Tim Anderegg, father-in-law Harvey Zimmerman, brother-in-law Bruce Zimmerman and sister-in-law Barb Zimmerman.

We will honor Greg’s life with family and friends on Saturday April 27th, at Preservation Hall, Racine, 740 Lake Avenue with a visitation from 1:00-4:00pm, followed by a celebration of Greg’s life. Greg gave us a colorful life, please feel free to wear your colors.
