Gregory "Rocky"'s Story
Gregory A. “Rocky” Gauron, 66, of Seabrook and a former longtime resident of Hampton, passed away peacefully at Massachusetts General Hospital on Sunday, December 11, 2016, surrounded by his devoted family.
He was born in Exeter on October 10, 1950, a son of the late Alfred and Alice (Semacko) Gauron.

He started as a mate, then Captain and eventually owner of Al Gauron’s Deep Sea Fishing and Whale Watching.
