Gregg Leakes has passed after battling colon cancer.  The family publicist released a statement saying in part, “Today the Leakes family is in deep pain with a broken heart. After a long battle with cancer, Gregg Leakes has passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by all of his children, very close loved ones, and wife NeNe Leakes.”  They added, “We ask that you pray for peace and strength over their family and allow them to mourn in private during this very, very difficult time.”  Several celebrities including Andy Cohen and Cynthia Bailey, went to social media to honor Gregg.  Gregg was 66 years old.
