Please accept my deepest condolences in the passing of Greg. I met Greg ( I always called him Covy) in junior high school. Covy was an amazing guy with a great sense of humor. He always wore a smile on his face. We were in school together until graduation. Then we reconnected for a while about 13 years ago when he was working for Burger King. He was still the same awesome Covy that I knew in school. I am sure has left such a legacy and great memories for all of his family and those who knew him. Your family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I am grateful God blessed me to know him and to have him as friend in school.

Sweet Robin, I am so, so sorry for you and your family's loss of Greg. In losing my dad in January, I know that this kind of pain is so deep. Your two sons were good guys that grew into fine men and I know you were proud of them. I pray God helps you through your hard days ahead and gives you comfort. I will pray for you and your family.

Robin, I am so sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you. I haven't seen Greg in years but I know you were proud of him and he was a wonderful young man. I will be praying also for his wife and children. Having lost Jess in January I know the loss must be very hard. I pray for peace and strength for you all.

I met Greg when we moved into the apartment above his in Huntsville, AL. Greg was always happy and loved being with his kids wether it was at a softball game with Abi or football with Ethan. So many days he'd be outside tossing softballs with Abi. He was so funny and was just an all around nice person. My heart breaks for his babies because he was their rock and the best dad. Abi and Ethan I am so very sorry for the loss of your dad. If you need anything just let me know.

I met Greg a few years ago when our sons became good friends. We didn’t talk often, but when we did it was at a HHS wrestling tournament or we were on the phone trying to figure out how to raise our teenage children and get through their most recent shenanigans. It was a struggle sometimes, but somehow we managed to get Ethan, Garrett and Abi graduated and moving on to adulthood. We laughed a lot and complained a lot, but I knew from our conversations how much he loved his kids no matter what! I’m so very sorry that his family is going through this unexpected loss. There are some things in life that are so hard to understand. I have been thinking about you all daily and hope that you can find some peace as you move through these hard days.

Greg was always so welcoming to us on all our trips to Chattanooga. He was just a joy to be around. I know my children will miss him. Prayers to the entire family.

Cov., where do we start? All the fun times in Tunica, and through the years' we were still able to connect. Playing football in high school , partying over at Sharma's or just hanging out and having fun. I know that you touched a lot of folks around Hixson and Chattanooga through your work. You were always able to connect with people and make them feel welcome even in awkward situations. Thanks for all the great memories. You will be really missed my friend. Someday, I will see you on the other side of the rainbow. Rest in Peace, Love Jimmy!!
