A man of God has passed on to be with his heavenly father.
Gregg was a great preacher and teacher of the Bible. He had a beautiful singing voice that was enjoyed by all.
When my mother in-law (Doris) passed away Gregg was there for my father in-law (Art) to ease the grief of his loss and
give him hope and encouragement to handle his future.
Gregg's presence in this world will be missed. To have known him was an honor.
My heart goes out to Arlene. Her world will never be the same by the passing of her loving husband Gregg.

ARLENE

We are so saddened and shocked about the news of Gregg. He was our unofficial pastor and helped get us through the hardest time in our lives--the passing of our daughter, Kelli. He amazed us with his unique abilities and God given talents--a singer, magician, carpenter, dog lover, crack marksman, etc. I remember the Blessing of the Animals Service we did together at Drakesboro--another great memory with many sweet pictures. We will ask God to hold you close and He will. And we'll continue to pray for you in the days, weeks, months and years to come. But all you have to do is make it through today.
Love to you, Tom and Nancy Stovall

My favorite memory of Pastor Greg was his gift to the church for Christmas. He performed many wonderful songs and it was such a blessing. His relationship with our family was so special to us. Greg always lived a faithful life. He was known at Western High for his faith even then. Arlene, beyond a shadow of a doubt you will miss him. Just remember he is always in your heart may your memories comfort you.

Brother Gregg was a Mans man. Will always cherish our discussions about church, faith, nascar, gadgets, his truck with all the gizmos, sportsman activities and even a little politics. We had a lot in common and I will truly miss his friendship and seeing him at mens breakfast, spreading the gospel at CGUMC every Sunday and lighting the peace candle. One of the brightest minds I have ever met. Had a soft heart for the military and 1st responders. Will miss my buddy. God rest his soul. It was always a special service when he sang at church. Love ya brother.
