    Greg was a wonderful man.   He loved his grandparents in Beaver Dam so much.  He was loving and patient, no matter how tough he tried to seem.  He loved building model cars and watching NRHA racing.  He was fantastic at baseball, 3rd Base.  Loved his dog Bandit.  So many passions.  Friend to many.   Gone too soon.   Sympathies to all he left behind, Kat and Scott

    I was close friends with Greg after he moved here from Green Bay.  Many great memories of our times together, especially at the hill climbs.  My deepest sympathy to your family for your loss.
