Gregg R. Salisbury

Portage, Michigan - Gregg, age 61, was hunting, doing what he loved most, at a family farm in upper Michigan, when he tragically passed away. Gregg lived at a high rate of speed. Whether it was his beloved KX500, his 1994 Dodge Dakota, or his Polaris Predator 500, all of which he raced competitively, Gregg did not dawdle. Just a few months ago he finally threw out all but three of his trophies, filling a dumpster. He truly had a character larger than life; even after his health issues began, he continued to attack life with gusto.

Gregg was born in Lansing, MI, to Phyllis and Ray Salisbury. Gregg lived in Lansing as a child and into adulthood. He met his wife, Susan, at a KWings game, they went on a date the next day, and were married six months later to the day in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Gregg and Susan eventually settled in Portage, Michigan.

Gregg was predeceased by his mother Phyllis and brother Dennis. He is survived by wife, Susan (Cordell) Salisbury; father, Raymond Salisbury; sons, Richard R. and John C. (Angela) Salisbury; grandsons, Devin, Christopher, and Trace Salisbury and brothers-in-law, Randy (Lil) Cordell, Clint (Caroline) Cordell, and Robert (Denise) Cordell. Also surviving are many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Per Gregg's wishes, he will be cremated and buried in a family plot in Evergreen Cemetery in Lansing, MI, at 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, November 25, 2020. Due to the virus, social distancing will be expected. Memorial contributions in Gregg's name may be made to Freedom Hunters, PO Box 600, Elizabeth, CO 80107, 303-884-0059,
