He was a man of many talents but enjoyed auto mechanics. You could usually find him under the hood of a vehicle with grease up to his elbows. He could make just about anything run again.
Whenever a situation came up and layoffs would happen, Greg’s sense of responsibility always moved him quickly to another job.
Greg was a wonderful husband and father and always provided for his family’s needs. When he wasn’t working overtime or doing odd jobs for friends, he loved hunting, camping out rough style, and playing horseshoes with his family in the backyard or floating down the Blackfoot River.

He was also blessed to be a grandfather to three special children; Emma, Kyndra and Orion.
