  1. I'll always remember the day Greg brought Jennifer in with him to get a haircut when Jen was about 4 years old. She had a little white fuzzy coat on that cold winter day, and now Bailey is a little Jennifer. I started out cutting Greg's hair, then became neighbors then I became he and Becky's realtor when they sold their house in South BA then Greg got so excited when I took him to see the house they currently live in. Greg was a great friend, with such a kind and gentle spirit. Can't hardly believe that sometimes lives are taken home before we are ready to let them go, but I know that he is walking the streets of gold with his savior and his loved ones that are there welcoming him. I'm so proud of the little grand kids that were able to speak at his service today. That speaks volumes of the legacy that Greg has built in his family. May God continue to give you peace and comfort in the coming days, weeks and years. With love for you all~ Sherry Cover

  2. To the family,
    I am so sad to hear of Greg's passing. As Greg's cousin I would see him at family reunions. I did speak to him when both of my parents passed away.
    To Becky, Jennifer and Brian and Steve.
    I am so sorry that I couldn't be there. Please know that you are all in my thought's
    And my prayers always'.
    Love Always,
    Ann Miller

  3. Greg was such a great person. When Gloria Duncan lost her son and husbsnd, Greg would go to her home and mow and do odd jobs without hesitation. BIG HEART! My heart goes out to his family! Jeanne Sullivent (Gallio)

  4. So sorry to hear about Greg's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all his family and friends. I will always remember him working on cars with my brother Dan back in the 70's. He will be missed.

  5. Although I haven't seen Greg since high school, he was a good friend of mine through grade school and junior high. To Greg's wife & children, may God comfort you in his absence and forever keep his memory alive through his many wonderful grandchildren. Steve Wells, Katy TX

  6. My foundest memory of my dad is him calling me up and telling me we had a new project to do. Started off with the 91' mustang he got me when I was about 18. He told me to not change a thing on it. But of course give a teenager a fast car and he'll find a way to make it faster. Wasn't until later in life dad bought a hot rod for himself. And off dad and I went making it faster and tricking it out with all the chrome he could and yes he loved his trucks low. And we lowered them together, well I did the work and he supervised as he called it. But he always trusted me working on his cars and that meant a lot. I miss him more than I ever imagined I could. I stare at the work we did together and fell that we weren't finished yet.

  7. When I think of Greg, I just smile…
    He was always such a fun person to be around.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
    Love always,
    Anthony, Jennifer, Xavier, Reese, and Maxwell Ratica

  8. My first memories of Greg were in the 2nd grade … it doesn't seem possible that was more than 50 years ago now. We became good friends and played baseball and football together all through grade school. I remember spending a lot of time at Greg's house playing slot cars and later on listening to the Beatles. I think Greg had the first record player I ever listened to and I still remember those 45's going round and round… RIP GREG.
