We just saw Greg’s obituary yesterday and were stunned and heartbroken.
Greg worked with us for the last three years coming we felt as a Godsend. Someone gave him our number because we needed help with so many different things.
One of few that you meet in today’s world that had an unspoken wonderful work ethic. He came, worked diligently, and left without expecting anything but fair pay. As a bonus many a wonderful conversation was had and a nice bond of friendship was formed.
We will never find another Greg and will miss him terribly.
Our heartfelt sorrow for his family.

So sorry to hear this. All I have is good memories of Greg and his entire family. We were neighbors many years ago and when I think back all I can do is smile. Greg and his brothers and sister and all my children were very close back then but when we all left the neighborhood some of us lost touch. Thank goodness for our wonderful memories because that keeps you in our hearts. Love and prayers to all the family🙏🏻 We will always remember you Greg with love and happiness

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Greg. When my sister Donna sent me his obituary it was heartbreaking. He was one of my very best friends growing up. I have so many fantastic memories of us riding bikes together, skating, playing back yard football. Being at the race track on weekends. He made a rope swing over a big ditch the neighborhood kids would play on daily that was just amazing! I love his whole family!!!! Our family shares So many good memories with your family. I still get happy when I see any of you out and about in different places today. I am truly sorry for your loss. The last time I saw Greg was in the dental office where I was working. I was able to spend time talking to him about our days growing up. He still had that big smile that would brighten up anyone’s day. My husband and children have heard many stories of him from me and my brother Dwayne. We spoke of them just recently again about the swing he had made and even rock fighting games we played. I will plan on being there to pay my last respects. I promise to keep you all in my prayers. I Love you all!

Greg my heart breaks. You were one of the best brother-in-laws. You were a great person, uncle, brother. You will be missed. I remember when we lived together. You would always make sure I was ok and Jennifer. You helped me during a tornado to get Jennifer and I protected from storm. Always a lot of laughter. Loved your car and remember you always jamming out to electric avenue which was one of your favorites. I love you and will miss you. Rock it out brother til meet again. Prayers for all❤️
