Greg was a singer and a self-taught guitarist and had a long career of entertaining in many bars and lounges in central Alberta - Hay Lakes, Round Hill, Camrose, Leduc, Ferintosh, Edberg and Kinsella, to name a few. He also had a love of truck driving and was proud of his white and purple truck that he drove for a company out of Edberg.
Greg will be remembered for the meals he prepared at G.O.’s Bar and Grill and that can of Lucky in his hand.
A graveside service will be held at a later date.
