I knew Greg from playing softball with him on Tuesdays in 2020. I didn't know him that well but he was always a quiet and nice guy. Greg always seemed to get hits even when the rest of the team wasn't hitting well. He didn't hit the ball far but was one who could consistently get singles. I remember telling him one evening that he hits really well. He simply said that it's softball so it's easy to get hits. I guess it came easier for him to do that consistently than it did for the rest of us. Here's hoping that Greg is continuing to find it "easy to get hits" in his next world. RIP.

Greg was my dear friend for over 20 years. He was an incredibly positive person who saw the good in everyone. Nothing could hold his spirits down for long. A dependable confidant, I could always count on Greg for support during the tough times, and to join in cheering the good times. He had a great sense of humor with a quick laugh and welcoming smile. Greg's warmhearted nature turned any gathering into a cordial fellowship.

I send condolences to Greg's family. I have known Greg for a couple of decades, not well, but well enough to know that he was a friendly, kind, and helpful man. I always respected him and I am sorry he passed so suddenly. I send my love and prayers.

Greg had participated in Mountain Christian Church’s open play volleyball group for many years. A quiet, gentle soul who loved the camaraderie as much as the competition. He embodied the spirit of character and community that we have always tried to foster among that group. He will be missed.

I was so sad to hear of Greg's passing. He played volleyball with my mom and I for years, and boy was he a load of fun to be around. An excellent volleyball player, great sportsman, and overall great friend. His bright, sarcastic personality made me smile each time I saw him. He always kept a positive attitude and listened to how you were doing. You will always be in our hearts, Greg. Thanks for such a wonderful experience getting to know you.
