So sorry for your loss. We often bring up the great last second hunt we had with Greg to get Garry’s Cow Elk AND now know the reason for the last second which gave us more time to enjoy Greg’s knowledge of hunting and life in general. Will plant extra flowers in our garden for both your Mom & Dad. God Bless Them, Garry & Jeannie Fries

I was lucky enough to have spent time hunting, visiting and talking with Greg over the past 6 years. A lot of my hunting stories have something I did with, laughed about, learned from and or enjoyed with Greg. He could make me laugh before he said anything. He had a look about him that made me think OK what’s next. He was definitely one of a kind. Thank you Eric and family for sharing your dad with me I’ll never forget him, what he taught me, or the enjoyment I got spending time with him. Let his memories live with us forever!!!
