After high school graduation Greg furthered his education at Sam Houston State University earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Photography.
After his college graduation, Greg settled in Normangee Tx where he worked for the State of Texas for over twenty plus years. He had recently retired and in his spare time enjoyed being an umpire and referee for high school and recreational teams, including Normangee Little Dribblers. He spent many hours on the road traveling because it was something that he loved. Many players and coaches would call him their favorite ref, and some liked to give him a hard time about calls he had made. Greg was also a wonderful cook and loved to experiment with new recipes and create his own dishes. He especially excelled at smoking the best brisket. Greg will be missed by many, especially his children whom he loved very much.
