Our Prayers go out to Verna, Greg was a great racer bought some parts from him and he gave me some great advice. God has gained another angel! Rest in Peace my friend.

When I made the jump from crewmember to Owner/Driver it was Gregg that did the machining for the first motor that I assembled. It was fast from the get go - in many ways thanks to his work. I won B/SA Class at the Las Vegas AC Delco Nationals in my very first National Event. That was an unforgettable weekend!

One of the quotes I often repeat that came from shooting the breeze with Gregg still stands out : “There’s 1000 ways to lose in racing, and if you stick around long enough you’ll experience them all. The Book of Winning is pamphlet, and the Book of Losing is an Encyclopedia.” We laughed about it at the time, but it’s so true.

Gregg must have a lot of those Winning Pamphlets on the shelf. I especially loved it when he finished #3 in SS with the Nova wagon he campaigned. A Classic car driven by a Classic dude. Another legend has left the track, and another Final Round has been run. God Bless Verna and Gregg’s family in this time of sadness.

It was always a pleasure dealing with Gregg, as he was as fair and honest as anyone could ever hope for, but it was the hours we spent talking about everything from honing blocks to music and life while sharing our stories that made him feel like a close friend, I'll miss you buddy.

I truly don't know how to express gratitude of being able to call Gregg a Friend!! I bought Big Red and the Red Duster from Gregg and we became great friends. Throughout the years I bought all my own machining equipment and he was always there to mentor me with any questions!! Last Spring when some friends of mine hurt an engine I asked if Gregg could help and as he always did he stepped up with help and parts!! He will be missed and every time I fire up Big Red I am sure Gregg will be smiling!!

My thoughts are with Verna and her and Gregg's Families.

I had several long conversations in person with Gregg the
last few months, when we knew his time was coming
to an end.

He told me that he had accomplished everything that
he want to do in his life and was content with what he
knew was soon impending.

He touched so many of our lives and he will not be forgotten!

My son Jon thought of him as a Second Dad and cannot stop
thinking about him.
