Greg was my best friend, and he told me I was his best friend every time we talked on the phone. Sometimes, he would call me 2-3 times a day. And usually, after I answered his call, he would always ask how I was doing, he would then ask how my wife was. She is gravely ill, and he was always so thoughtful he would always ask how she was. When I asked him how he was, he would always say he was great and would always tell me he was moving the ball down the field. Well, my dear friend, the game is now over, and you have scored the game saving touchdown. Greg, you are the brother I never had. You will be missed beyond belief. May God rest your soul my dear friend. You have fought the good fight, and you have finished the course. Now it is time to rest in the arms of Jesus.

Greg was a good friend of mine and everyone who met him. I met Greg about 4 years ago at Saddle Creek gun range in Polk County. Greg would come up and introduce himself to every new shooter at the range and always remember their name.
Greg loved to make friends with everyone and did anything he could to help a new shooter relax and have a great time.
Greg was one of the few people in my life that I looked forward to seeing every Wednesday and Friday, and he rarely missed a day.
Greg will be missed by all his friends who loved him and I hope Mary knows that I am thinking of her during this time. He always talked about her.
Greg always called he, Rick White and I the Three Musketeers.

What a wonderful man Greg was. He was always concerned with the well being of others before his own. He would call to check on us even though he was so sick. He had a kind and gentle demeanor and will definitely be missed. My heart goes out to you Mary during this difficult time.
