There was one year when the snow was horrible. We didn’t get snow days lol and the bus either recked or couldn’t make it up the hill. Greg walked to us with something a garbage can lid or whatever and walked us up the hill and then we would slide down the other side so that we could get home. Very fun.

I remember going to going to grandma's house when I was little about 6years old and we would go fishing in the pond behind Gregg's house. We had fun back then. My mom's name was Brenda Bittle,grandmother's name was Louise Hoehns,great grandmother's name was Mora Parker . I also worked with Gregg at Nowell's grocery store. Gregg was always soft spoken and in a good mood every day. Would see him at Moser's every now and then . He will be missed greatly.

Sincerely, Debbie Hannibal

The one memory that always comes to mind is when Gregg came home with dry ice and fogged up the whole kitchen. I don't even remember how old I was but to this day I can remember how cool it was.
