Mr. Gregory Lee Detienne Sr., age 68 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Sunday, July 12, 2020.

He was born on November 10, 1951 in Mexico, Mo., the son of Paul and Mildred Detienne. He was married on September 21, 2016 in Jefferson City to Sandra Kay McLaughlin who survives at the home.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, Greg was born and raised in Mexico, Mo. and was a 1970 graduate of Mexico High School. Greg later moved to Columbia and then Jefferson City when he met his wife, Sandy.

Greg was a gifted mechanic and worked in multiple shops throughout his lifetime. He retired in 2013 following a 22-year long career at AB Chance Co. After retirement, Greg did janitorial work at Christian Cleaning Service.

Greg was happiest outdoors. Whether he was hunting, fishing or camping at the river access, Maries River, the Osage River, or in Warsaw, he was at home in nature. He could often be found enjoying a drink at The Office or The Outpost Bar & Grill with his friends and family. Greg loved music, had a talent for playing the bass guitar and was even in a band in his youth. Greg had a need for speed. He had vast knowledge of mechanic work and could be described as a “muscle head” as he liked to tinker under the hood and even fully rebuild motors. Greg had a passion for motorcycles, racing, and cars in general. He was a huge supporter of Harley Davidson bikes as well as apparel and he, along with his wife, enjoyed attending biker rallies to support their brand. Greg was funny, witty and knew how to have a good time.

Survivors include: his loving wife Sandra; two sons: Greg Detienne Jr. (Shamecca) of Fulton, Mo., Ben Baham (Sarah) of Jefferson City, Mo., three daughters: April Detienne (Shawn) of Fulton, Mo., Calla Cannon (Keely) of Jefferson City, Mo., and Debra Cannon of Dallas, Tx; three grandchildren: Kayla Detienne, Austin Detienne, and Alexis Baham; and many other extended family members and friends.

Greg was preceded in death by his parents

Greg was a great friend of mine. We had a lot of good times back in the days, racing cars, getting together on the town square with others. Greg was best man at my wedding. Lost touch with him after he moved away. RIP
