He spent much of his life in Colorado where he loved the mountains and the outdoor adventures it offered. He would also divide his time with his home state of Utah. There he spent the last part of his life enjoying the comfort and warmth of Moab—spending his time with both
new friends and old.
Greg attended BY High in Provo UT. He graduated with a bachelors degree from BYU and Juris Doctorite from the University of Denver. With a strong entrepreneurial drive he ran many businesses throughout his life. He was a natural teacher and very knowledgable. No matter
the subject he always seemed to know quite a bit about it and he relished in long discussions and debates. Greg also loved the adventure of travel. In fact, he visited or lived in every state in the United States except Hawaii.
As a young man he served a mission for the LDS church in what was then called the Alaskan Canadian Mission. And several times he made return visits to that beautiful land and more often told great stories from his experience there.
He is dearly missed by family and friends across the country.
There will be a memorial celebration at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Evergreen Chapel: 7645 Malamute Drive, Evergreen, CO 80439 at 11:00 A.M. He will be laid to rest at Horn Cemetery, Bailey

|They Live On
Those we love remain with us
For love itself
Cherished memories never fade
Because one loved
Those we love can never be
More than a thought
For as long as there’s a memory,
on within our heart.
