Greg was born in La Porte, Indiana, where he graduated from La Porte High School. Greg was very proud of his time as snare drummer in La Porte’s Drum Corps, the Maple City Cadets. He served in the US Army, later becoming a member of the American Legion of La Porte. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business from Purdue University and proudly followed their sports teams. Greg worked as a factory supervisor for several years, and then, retired as a salesman. After moving to Long Beach, he joined the Long Beach Civic Association, and was a past president. Greg loved, above all, being Papa G to his eight grandchildren. He enjoyed golf, Jack Daniels, Chicago sports (well the good ones: Cubs, Bears, and Bulls), music (like the Who and TSO), and movies (“Give me Paw!”). Greg was a member of the Catholic faith, and attended mass at Notre Dame Catholic Church. Service and celebration of life will be open to all, but planned for the spring or summer at Notre Dame Catholic Church in Long Beach, IN. Details will be posted to Facebook when arranged. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to kidney.org, Friends of DCI Scholarship Fund, or Notre Dame Catholic Church in Long Beach, IN.
