My dad taught me a lot of things in life From hunting and fishing to riding motorcycles and four wheelers, but he also taught me patience and love. His patience guided me through learning to wait for a fish to catch on, waiting for the perfect game to come into view, having patience in myself when I wrecked my bikes. And through all my stages and phases he loved me no matter how good or bad I was at hunting,fishing, or riding motorcycles. He just loved the time we spent together. He also passed on a lot of things from his laugh and looks to his love for films and technology. We could talk for hours about the newest technology and what movies we should watch. He would argue pc and Android were the best while I went to the dark side of everything Apple. We could spend an entire day watching movie marathons or even going to the theater and seeing two to three movies in one day. I never could of asked for a better father. if I ever needed anything he was there in a heartbeat from life advice to car troubles. Out of everything my father taught me or passed down The most important thing he instilled in me was to be myself no matter what and to do what I love no matter the cost. I will always miss you daddy. Until we meet again.

Greg, you never doubted me. You gave me the Dad I never had but always wanted, and showed me how to be the Dad I never thought I could be. I will miss your acceptance, guidance, loving nature and shining example. I will take care of your little girl until the day we all celebrate together again.

Greg was the best daddy in the world to our three beautiful daughters. He was there for them any time they needed him with the right words for that moment. He had a gift for that. Always so patient with them. He loved and adored all his grandchildren. He will be missed so much. He will always have a place in my heart. We love you, Greg.
