Gregory Allen Black

September 15, 1953August 14, 2020

Gregory “Greg” Allen Black went home to be with the Lord on August 14, 2020 in Houston, Texas at the age of 66.

Greg is survived by his wife of 50 years, Jennifer and his three daughters, Denise Swainson, Melissa and Tim Wilson, Kimberly Staley, nine grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and his fur babies. He is preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Lydia Black, and three sisters, Beverly Black, Jackie Wiseman, and Marylin Wade.

Greg was a simple man who enjoyed working, barbequing, watching westerns, and spending time with his family.

In keeping with Greg’s wishes, there will be a private ceremony; however, his life will be celebrated in the hearts of family and friends, and his memory will live on always.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Cancer Society.

A prayer for Greg's family:
May your hearts find peace and tranquility through the healing power of God's love. There will be things that trigger tears and things that bring laughter but they will gently remind you of all the wonderful details that made life with Greg such a precious gift ... husband, father, sibling, friend. My deepest sympathy for your loss.
