Gregg B. Gagliardi, 37, Baltimore chemist

Gregg B. Gagliardi, a Baltimore chemist, died of cancer Thursday at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Fullerton resident was 37.

Mr. Gagliardi was a manufacturing chemist with Millennium Inorganic Chemicals, formerly SCM Chemical Co., which he joined in 1987. Before then, he was a chemist with the now-defunct Courtney Industries.

He enjoyed competing in local marathons and 5-K races; lure coursing, or racing, his Irish Wolfhounds; saltwater fishing; bicycling; and brewing beer.

He was born and raised in Perry Hall and earned a bachelor's degree from Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., in 1983.

A Mass of Christian burial was offered yesterday.

He is survived by his wife of six years, the former Denise Burgard; a son, Daniel H. Gagliardi; his parents, Joseph and Bernardine Gagliardi of Perry Hall; two brothers, Christopher Gagliardi of White Marsh and Michael Joseph Gagliardi of Locust Grove, Va.; and a sister, Bridgit Gagliardi-Staubs of Glen Rock, Pa. A memorial service for Francis V. Morgan, a retired Bethlehem Steel Corp. clerk, will be held at 12: 30 p.m. Nov. 9 at First Unitarian Church, Charles and Franklin streets, where he was a member.

Mr. Morgan died of lung cancer Oct. 6 at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care in Towson. He was 77 and lived in Charles Village all of his life.

He retired from the steelmaker's Sparrows Point plant in 1982 after 35 years as a clerk in the rod and wire mill. He was a 1938 graduate of City College and repeated his senior year at Boys' Latin School, graduating in 1939.

The World War II veteran served in the merchant marine.

The lifelong bachelor is survived by a cousin, Calvin Rogers of Severna Park; and close friends Al Filbert of Bel Air and Michael Barrett, Alice Rodman and Doris Singer, all of Charles Village.
