So very sorry to hear about Greg’s passing. Pam and Chris will be in my prayers. Greg was always one to joke about his golf game. We spent many a day laughing about his golf adventures.

So shocked and saddened to hear of Greg's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Really enjoyed Greg's humor in church as the litergist. He was dedicated to the Lord and his church. So sorry he is gone. Prayers for Pam & Chris. Greg is resting in the Lord's prescence now. God bless him.

Christmas Party 2019

Greg was a wonderful friend to my husband and me! He always had a joke or meme to text to make us laugh. He had such a kind, servant's heart! He was someone we could count on to be there for us and so many others. Whatever he did, he gave 100%. Our loss is Heaven's gain! We look forward to seeing him again someday as we worship and serve at our Savior's feet. We will miss him here but know it's not really goodbye. "We'll see you later, friend!"
