A lifelong resident of the central Missouri area, Greg graduated from Jefferson City High School in 1986.
Greg was known as a handyman and could always be found doing odd jobs or working in construction. He will always be known for his big heart, free spirit and stubborn demeanor. He was willing to do anything he could for others.
Greg had a love for the outdoors, whether he was fishing, hunting, canoeing, or camping with family, he was at home in nature. His favorite place was being with friends and family on the Osage River where he would grill enough food to feed anyone.

He was cherished by all who knew him and will be greatly missed by his loving family and friends.
