Greg was known as a hard-working individual who loved his family, sports, music and being outdoors. After being a painter, he worked for North Eastern Correctional Center and True Manufacturing until he retired in July of 2020. Greg enjoyed sports, serving as a volunteer coach for Khoury League, American Legion Baseball, and any teams his children were involved with. When his daughter signed on to play DIV-I college basketball with the University of Mississippi, he could always be seen sporting an Ole’ Miss shirt. Outside of his children’s sports activities, he was a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan and never missed listen to or watching a game. Greg enjoyed the outdoors, gambling, and music. Greg looked forward to being outdoors and having the chance to deer hunt and fish. He was a huge Creedence Clearwater Revival and ZZ Top fan. He took his children to their first concert to see Hank Williams Jr. when they were young and his love for music has passed on to them. Above all, Greg loved and supported his family in whatever they were involved in. Whether it was his children or his grandchildren, he was always there either as a coach or in the stands cheering them on. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Memorials may be made to the Cardinals Glennon Children’s Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, or The Refuge Church.
