Greg was born on November 30, 1963 in Marshfield to Donald and Joan (Wolf) Kleifgen. He attended Pittsville High School.
Greg was a loving and enjoyable young man. He loved to fish and hunt and enjoyed his fishing trips to Canada with his best friend Keith Leach. He drove truck for 27 years and had many miles over the road, visiting many states. His dream was to be an ice road trucker in Alaska. Greg worked seasonally for Borek Cranberry Company in City Point.
We loved our time with our brother. He had a unique sense of humor. We will miss him dearly.
We would like to thank Chris for all his help, taking care of him and being here when he needed him the most. Chris was a true friend to Greg, more like a son he never had.
We will miss you Greg.
