He enjoyed helping with 4-H projects. One of his true passions was four-wheeling, even when his health was not the best, he found a way to ride. Greg loved being outside under his tree or in his barn, just soaking in the peacefulness. He had said more than once, "I wish I could have been a farmer"

So sorry for your loss Mari. You forgot to mention Greg’s intellect for marrying someone like yourself. He was a calm and brave soul whenever I had the pleasure of spending time with him. You and your family will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
