Greg was born in Milwaukee in 1967. He received his high school diploma (GED) in 1991, completed course work in world geography with Colorado State University in 2002 and received his amateur radio license (KB9KKC) in 2005. He worked at Pantheon Industries in Oconomowoc.

Greg lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; music, movies, billiards, biking, hiking, crossword puzzles, hanging out with his friends at Friendships Unlimited in Waukesha and spending time with his family. In the summer Greg loved attending festivals and fairs throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Greg had an uncanny ability to remember family membersí birthdays and never missed sending a card to show he was thinking of you.
