Gregory was born February 7, 1979, a carbon copy of his dad (Pete & Re-Pete) and light of his mom's life. At 4 years old, he watched All My Children while his great-grandma, Pearl VanBebber, worked so he could keep her apprised of developments.
Laying hardwood floors was in Greg's blood. He learned from the best, & seeing a flawless result brought him true joy. With appreciation for the simple things in life, Greg delighted in the cool side of the pillow and said if he ever won the lottery, he would never wear the same pair of socks again. He talked to "The Big Guy" daily, praying for his loved ones.
Taking pride in manners his mom instilled, his Sara was always on the inside of the sidewalk (and his heart).
"NO RETREAT. NO SURRENDER."
"I love you, baby kid."
