He was a proud ice road trucker and also worked in the oilfields of Alberta.
In July of 2014, Greg was involved in a life changing accident that hospitalized him for 5 years up until the day of his passing.
Greg and Christine were married for over 30 years, and recently celebrated that anniversary in Edmonton, Alberta. Greg loved all of his kids and grandchildren. He was so proud of all of them and their accomplishments throughout their many milestones.
During his life Greg and Christine had many adventures that took them throughout Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC. They moved often during the school breaks to many new places for endless new adventures.
