James Gregg Aistrope, 81 of Glenwood, Iowa passed away Nov. 15, 2019 at Glen Haven Village. He was born November 30, 1937 in Red Oak, Iowa to Clifford Donner and Ruth Larue (Ware) Aistrope. Gregg was lifelong resident of Glenwood graduating with the “Class of 57”. He followed his father’s footsteps by managing the family business, Aistrope Insurance. When you entered his business, you were usually greeted by his beloved bulldog Maggie.
Gregg was a member of the First Congregational U.C.C. He was very proud to be a retired member of the Glenwood Fire and Rescue where he served for over 25 years and as Captain of the rescue squad. He was the first certified E.M.T and was instrumental in starting the E.M.T. program for the department. He was also a Mason, Shriner, Rotarian and a veteran in the Army National Guard from 1959-1964. He decorated for holidays around the cul-de-sac where he lived and always planted knock out roses around the sign of his business as well as beautifying the entrance of the Glenwood Lake Park where he served on the board. He enjoyed golfing with others and riding his bicycle. Gregg and his twin brother Gordon had a lot of fun playing shenanigans when others confused them for each other. He was devoted to his family and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Preceding Gregg in passing were his parents, brother Clifford Donner Aistrope, Jr.; sister Jane Rider and husband Al.
Survivors include his children, Kip (Lori) Aistrope; Aaron (Lori) Aistrope and Annette (Allen) Gill all of Glenwood, Iowa; 8 grandchildren; 1 great-grandchild; twin brother, Gordon Aistrope of Ottumwa, Iowa; brother, Fritz Aistrope of Seattle, Washington; several nieces, nephews, extended relatives, friends and girlfriend Judy Kelly.
