We first met Greg and Lynn in the late 90’s when we sang together at an event. The past year I got reacquainted with Greg. He was a fine Christian man! He talked about his kids and grandkids and the 2 little ones a lot- he loved his family! Great sense of humor- he never failed to make me smile. We always talked about music and he talked about his work in the Veterans’ ministry. He truly had a servant’s heart. My condolences to John, Hayley, and the family. He will he greatly missed.
I I first met Greg when he came to the school I was teaching at to sell meat. We quickly became friends as everyone did who knew Greg. He was always so positive and always had a story to tell, usually about food. My favorite memory of Greg is the sauce he gave me for the meatballs Oh my gosh, I couldn’t believe it!!! When I asked him about it and how he made it he sweetly smiled and said, “I have no idea my wife makes it.” What a wonderful man Heaven has gained. RIP my friend.
I graduated High School with Greg and we were usually getting into some sort of teenaged mischief. After graduation we went our separate ways. Over the decades when I would be back in the area I would look up Greg and we would have a wonderful visit. He was always positive and a pleasure to talk to. He will be missed
My husband, Scott Criswell, graduated with Greg at CHS in 1968. I always appreciated how Greg would share the gospel with anyone, and especially how he witnessed to his fellow classmates from CHS over the years, sharing his deep desire for them to know Jesus as he did. We are very sorry for your loss, John, Hayley, and families, but know that your dad made such an impact on so many lives. We know that because He lives, we also can live, so we can be assured of the fact that Greg is now truly living eternally with his Lord Jesus Christ!! Naomi Criswell
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of cousin Greg. He always had a smile, a funny story and a contagious laugh that pulled you to him. I always remember the oldies playing when visiting and enjoying the dances he would DJ. I am so sorry for your loss but comforted in knowing he is with Lynn and the Lord. Praying for comfort and peace to the family. Cousin Terri (Ranieri) Wyman.
Hayley, John, and family: Greg and I were students in Cassopolis High School over a half century ago. Back then, neither of us knew the Lord, Jesus. After we left home, we each traveled different paths that brought us to faith in Jesus. After decades, we were reunited and developed a friendship that was based on our mutual faith. It even led to working together to reach the veteran community with the Gospel. I will miss my good friend and Brother, but I am comforted, knowing he is with the Lord Jesus! You may be SURE of that fact!

Greg was such a wonderful man, coach, friend, spiritual leader and more. He has always been an influence in my life. I’ve always considered Greg and Lynn as family. I love you, Greg. I pray I see you again one day.
I love you dad! I miss you especially in the mornings and how every morning how you always said hi to me! It was comforting!
John and Hayley and families: My heart breaks for you guys as Greg was a very special person. His love for Jesus and how he spread his love for him was always a great meeting with him. I and my brothers, Byron (deceased) and Keith and I all accepted Jesus as our savior with him. He’s going to be greatly missed by so many. Love, hugs, and prayers for all of us
