Greg was an amazing man who lived a fulfilled life. He honorably served our country in the United States Marine Corps where he held the rank of 1st Lieutenant. He was a faithful member of First United Methodist and was a past member of the Elk's Lodge in Morehead City. Greg obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations from the University of Arkansas State. During high school, at A & O (Altamahaw and Ossipee) Greg played football achieving All Conference and All State honors. His incredible athletic talent afforded him the opportunity to play football in Marine Corps and the opportunity to try out for the St. Louis Cardinals. As the years went on, he traded the football field for the golf course and was known to be an avid golfer. Gardening was another interest for Greg, he kept his yard immaculate and enjoyed the beauty of his gardening.
