December 27, 1959 - May 21, 2021
Pastor Gregory Scott Hon, age 61, of Hebron, Indiana passed away on Friday, May 21, 2021 at IU Methodist Hospital Indianapolis, IN. Gregory was born on December 27, 1959 in Hammond, Indiana to Frank and Donna (Deering) Hon. Greg is survived by; his wife, Jan and son Joseph, both of Hebron; his parents, Frank and Donna Hon of Hebron; sister, Pamela (Ken) Douglas of South Bend; brother, Steven (Jill) Hon of Hebron; and sister, Beth (Brad) Garner of Hebron. Greg is preceded in death by his brother, Roy. Pastor Hon was diagnosed at birth with cystic fibrosis. Being told their son would not live past the age of five, his parents dedicated his life to the Lord. At the age of five, Greg trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and instead of facing an expected end to his life, became more alive than he ever had before. God continued to bless Greg with good health. At the age of 13, Greg responded to the lament in Ezekiel 22:30, “And I (the Lord God) sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.” He had always felt there was a reason God had allowed him to live, and now knew the call of God to the ministry was on his life: By God’s grace, he would be the man to stand in the gap. Even at a young age, Greg was afforded opportunities to preach. While attending Bible College, he became the youth pastor of his home church, and married his high school sweetheart, Jan, now his wife of 40 years. Pastor Hon served the Lord and ministered to the communities in Northwest Indiana for over 40 years, and pastored Graceway Bible Baptist Church in DeMotte, Indiana, since 2011. On October 31, 2005, Greg received a double-lung transplant. His family is forever grateful to God and the donor’s family for giving them 15 more years with Greg. It is their prayer that his testimony will continue to encourage and strengthen those facing trials in their lives. Friends may visit with the family on Thursday, May 27, 2021 from 3:00PM to 8:00PM at Graceway Bible Baptist Church 9171 N 1000 W, DeMotte, IN 46310.
