Greg was a very good friend at West. We did stay in touch through the years.

I got to know Greg at the 2005 class reunion. We talked a lot about motorcycles and compared notes on the beginning of protests at military funerals. Greg picked up the ball and helped form the Patriot Guard Riders. He called Laura Miller Beck and she called me about becoming members. Laura, Debbie and I did our first mission that winter at a soldiers funeral in Wichita. I got to know Greg much better after that and have done several other missions.  I'm very proud to call him my friend. He was a great man and a true patriot. I miss him and think of him frequently.

While we were not close friends in high school, I do remember him well.  As a retired military member myself, I very much admire his participation in the Patriot Guard.   His commitment to honoring the service of our fallen comrades is something truly special.  He will likely never know how many family members were so very grateful to their intervention with the moronic misfits that tried to defile the final moments of so many men and women that gave all so that we could have the freedoms we enjoy today.

I worked with Greg at the Carefree Awning factory the last summer I spent in Wichita. It was 1972 between my sophomore and junior years of college. We knew each other in jr high and high school, but we became friends that summer and I attended his wedding. We lost track of each other after that and I didn't even know he joined the militatry. Greg was a good guy. I am not surprised to hear of his work with the Patriot Guard. Sad to hear he is gone.
