Greg had a love for the outdoors at a young age, and this carried on throughout his life. He enjoyed gardening, raising a large garden every year. His neighbors also appreciated Greg’s garden as he would leave bags of his produce on their doorsteps all throughout harvest. Greg loved to fish, play cards and visit with his neighbors.
He had a very special place in his heart for his nieces and nephews, showering them with love and way too much candy over the holidays.
He had various jobs and trades throughout his life. He really enjoyed working with his hands and as a “jack of all trades”. Greg enjoyed roofing, carpentry, and trucking but his favorite job was being a part of his brother-in-law’s farming operation over the last 15 years. Greg was always talking about farming, crops and cattle with his family and friends.
