As a boy he enjoyed family vacations to S.W. Iowa to visit his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins on the family farm where his father was raised. Greg joined the Navy in 1968 stationed in the Philippines, Japan, Hawaii and Vietnam. Relieved of active duty in 1970, he continued with the Navy Reserves until his honorable discharge in 1974.
Greg attended Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, graduating in 1976 with a Bachelor of Science degree. Scoring in the 97th percentile in his accounting class, he received a scholarship to the University of Denver. Passing his CPA boards the first time around, Greg made his home in Grand Junction, Colo., working in accounting and independent tax accounting up until his death. He enjoyed spending time with friends, sharing a cup of coffee or a meal, sport events and was "well known" at the public library as he loved to read. He especially enjoyed trips to Denver to spend with a special friend plus 20 years Vicki Lockhart.
