I was very sorry to hear about the passing of Greg. I worked with him at CenturyLink, he was the technician for a lot of my orders for one of my largest customers. I could always rely on him to be prompt, responsive and professional. I will miss working with him, he was one of the good guys! My prayers go out to his wife and children, he was too young to leave this earth. I pray for peace , rest and understanding as you navigate through your loss.

My deepest, heartfelt condolences go out to the Tincher family.

It was my honor and privilege to know and work with Greg. He was a man of strong principle, firm conviction and great compassion. He treated others following the golden rule, and his quick wit and sense of humor were endearing.

For those of us who worked with him, we knew he loved his family deeply, and he was a loyal, trusted teammate. Greg Tincher will be incredibly missed and fondly remembered by us all.

Goodbye, my friend.

I was sorry to hear the news of Greg's passing. I had the pleasure of being one of Greg's teammates at CenturyLink and over the past year had developed a friendship with him. It was obvious over the course of that friendship that he loved his family and was always willing to help no matter the situation. His expertise and guidance for our team will be gravely missed. He always tried to make the work environment fun and enjoyable by cracking a prank or joke here and there. I will miss you man.

So sorry for your loss! I remember Greg as a kid and having fun with Juvena and my brother Scott.

I just want to send out my deepest condolences to the Tincher family. I worked with Greg briefly, which is to say that I knew him. We crossed paths about two years ago when we became co-workers at CTL. Our relationship was not stellar in the beginning, but as I grew to know Greg, and visa-versa, we became a bit trusting, and closer. I liked him, but wish I could have known him more. It turns out we have a lot more in common than we both knew. After perusing Sonya's FB page with her permission, it was obvious that Greg was very fun-loving guy, and that makes this an even greater tragedy.
Greg really worked hard, and was a great asset to our existence as a team. He was always there to assist when we needed his support in the field, and I will surely miss his expertise and his dry sense of humor.
Love you man/Captain!

I only got to work with Greg for just under a year, but it didn't take long to discover his big heart. He cared deeply for his people and I will miss him very much.

"G. Tincher", as I called him, will be sincerely missed. Despite challenges, negativity, nay-sayers, movement from twtelecom, Level 3 to CenturyLink, he always strived to maintain good character. His loving, caring and do things the right way attitude was infectious. This good employee, colleague, friend, brother, son, father and husband will be sincerely missed! Your stress and worries of this world are gone. Rest well friend! Love Angela and the Cody Family...

I started working with Greg almost a year ago and spent the most time of that from 8 to 5 with him. He was always there for me no matter what time of the hour or on any day he would always answer that call or call and check on me. Short story, we had trolls at work we had small brass weights that would bolt on the bottom of racks at work. He would add one at a time to my backpack day by day and I would not notice it till it weighed 50 pounds and I have toted it around for weeks. He was always like that, having a good time . I have lost a friend, brother and Mentor and he never will be forgotten.

Greg, my cousin, I didn't know well because of the years and many miles between us. I never saw him without a huge wonderful smile. I am so sorry that your life on earth has been cut so short and sorry that I didn't have the opportunity to know you better. You are and will be greatly loved and missed.

I would like to send my sincere thoughts and prayers for Greg Tincher and family. I have worked with Greg for the last 6+ years and I will miss him tremendously. Greg was always the person that you could count on no matter what was going on day or night. My memories of myself and Greg working on those long nights and days will be cherished forever. He was a great man at and away from work, no matter what was needed he made sure things were done so the mission could be completed. We had a great deal in common with being in the Air Force together and we really new how to deal with things from the perspective of the military to the work atmosphere, no matter what the challenge presented to us. Aim High My Good Friend and know that you will always and forever be missed. God Bless you and your family.
