Greg's greatest passion in life was dance. In the early 70's Greg was a Choreographer and traveled from California to different states and countries which included Japan and Germany. Greg taught jazz dance for many years. He influenced many to become dancers and his favorite influence just happened to be his niece Nicole. Most importantly, Greg loved his family and was such a joy and had a very funny and witty personality.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be on Monday, May 2nd at 12:00 noon at the Pherigo Cemetery, Unionville, Missouri. Greg had the biggest heart and loved his family more than anything. All who knew him loved him. Greg is now in his heavenly home with Jesus, as he was a Christian. We thank the Lord for his life.
