Greg retired from Wilson Iron Works as a Project Manager after dedicating 28 years to a job he loved. He was a volunteer fireman in his younger years and was an avid sportsman.

He was devoted to the Swamp Plantation Hunting Club. Greg loved everything about being outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating on the water, camping at the beach and going to the mountains. He was a wealth of knowledge on just about anything outdoors and could make anything. Most of all, Gregory loved spending time with his friends and family and lived by the quote “Everyday is a Gift”. Greg had the ability to befriend anyone he came across, and would help anyone in a moment's notice without expecting anything in return.
