If you knew Gregory, you would know he was a gentle giant a fun-loving “never met a stranger,” type of a guy, with a competitive spirit who loved his wife deeply. He was a faithful MLG&W league bowler for over 20 years. Gregory also volunteered annually as a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He enjoyed cookouts, playing poker, Trunk Dominoes, University of Tennessee and Memphis Grizzlies.
His Mother-in-Law, Mrs. Rolene Jones said, “I loved Greg like he was my own son…I don’t know why he had to leave us, but it was God’s will. There are some of us born to live a long mediocre life and some of us born to live a short great life. Greg was born to live a short but great life.”
