A graduate of the class of 1976 at Hannibal High School, Greg was a member of the Pirate Football Team. He later attended the Jimmy Swaggart Bible College.
Away from work, Greg always looked forward to the moments he could share with his family, grandchildren, and friends. A true “mountain man” at heart Greg loved the outdoors and traveling out west, with trips to Colorado, South Dakota and Yellowstone National Park being a few of his favorites. An avid reader, Greg would read about anything that interested him at the time. Histories and westerns were always favorites, especially selections by Louis L ’Amour and the Lonesome Dove series. Simply enjoying the outdoors were calming moments for Greg, whether relaxing on his deck at home or mowing the grass on his property. A collector, Greg took pleasure in adding to his gun collection and other interests ranging from “Wizard of Oz” collectibles to Hot Wheels cars to baseball and football cards. The Kansas City Chiefs and LSU Tigers were Greg’s football teams to watch. A talented griller, Greg, loved his bacon and eggs on the griddle, hot wings, smashed burgers, Zapp’s potato chips and anything peach. Most of all Greg’s most cherished times were those that he shared with family. Greg will be truly missed by all those that knew and loved him.
Greg was a Christian by faith.
Honorary pallbearers will be Steve Brink, Randy Park, Richard Renner, Lynn Hodges, Tony Green, Mark Epperson and Greg’s nieces and nephews.
