Greg’s “gift of gab” always put people at ease, and everyone really enjoyed being around him. And what a dance! He could groove with the best of them.
Greg loved playing horseshoes, a great pool shot, and no one could beat him at Spades. He really enjoyed all sports, especially basketball, football, and Nascar (he once went fishing with Dale Earnhart). March Madness and WVU games were always a party at Greg’s home.
