Greg retired from the printing industry after 39 years. He was never one to sit idle. He went on to work at Walmart for 10 years. He loved being around people and never met a stranger. He was an avid baseball fan and a lifetime fan of the Cincinnati Reds. He also enjoyed bowling, reading, and gathering as much knowledge as he could as well. There was always something new to be learned or a new skill to be mastered-100% effort. After retirement, he added golfing to his list of activities. He was a great teacher with almost endless patience, loved to share life lessons and experiences. The mentality of a lifelong coach.
