Salesman, outdoorsman

May 08, 2007

Gregory Paul Guston, a retired pharmaceutical salesman and outdoorsman, died Wednesday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. The 52-year-old Monkton resident had been injured Wednesday when his 1995 Geo Tracker ran off Merryman's Mill Road and struck a tree, according to Baltimore County police.

Mr. Guston was born in Baltimore and raised in Hamilton. He was a 1972 graduate of Polytechnic Institute and earned his bachelor's degree in biology in 1976 from what is now Towson University.

He worked for much of his 30-year career for Bristol-Myers Squibb, and retired in 2004 from Sankyo Pharma because of failing health.

"He had osteonecrosis and had undergone 11 hip replacements," said his wife of 10 years, Dr. Theresa M. Peet.

Mr. Guston enjoyed fishing, hunting and restoring antique guns. He also liked cooking and entertaining.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Ruck Towson Funeral Home, 1050 York Road.

Also surviving are his daughter, Margot E. Guston, 7; his parents, Frank and Helen Guston of Parkville; a brother, Robert F. Guston Sr. of Hamilton; and several nieces and nephews.
