BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Hundreds of people gathered at Mt.
Pilgrim Baptist Church in North Baton Rouge To remember the life and legacy of
longed loved Southern University band director Dr. Isaac Greggs. Greggs
was director of the Human Jukebox from 1969 to 2005.
Celebrating his legacy through
song and prayer, Pastor Jesse Bilberry Jr. said Greggs was a longtime friend.
And one of his proudest moments is when Greggs allowed him to be his pastor.
"I knew then that we will be
together forever," said Bilberry.
His son Dedrick Greggs was also
at the funeral. He said he learned a lot from his father while growing up. He
would travel with across the country.
"That's one thing that helped me
a lot growing up. Along with his stern hand. And a lot of times it was his
words of wisdom," said Dedrick.
Dr. Greggs will be remembered not
only in the Southern community, but the Baton Rouge community. A legacy that
will live for generations and generations to come.
