Greg was a wonderful grandfather to Alexis and great-grandfather to Elijah and Carson. He will be missed at family gatherings. Elijah loved his ‘riding lawnmower time with his Papa’.
I am so saddened of my first cousin Greg’s passing. His father Jimmy is my uncle whom was a wonderful person in my life. I met Greg when Jimmy and Shirley married and Greg was welcomed into our family. My wife Randi send our love out to Greg’s family. Bryan Cole
