Greg loved the outdoors. He loved cod jigging, trouting, berry picking, camping, growing vegetables and he also loved picking at things. He enjoyed campfires, swimming, being in his boat and working in his shed. He loved to laugh and could tell a good joke. He certainly loved his belly, but most of all he loved his family. His wife Donna was his best friend and buddy. His 2 children were his world and his grandson was his pride and joy.
