Greg enjoyed working as an Electronics Engineer for radio companies in Ohio and Pennsylvania, dating back to the early days of WSTV/WRKY in Steubenville, OH and most currently ForeverMediaInc in Robinson Twp. PA. He was a kind and great friend to all who had the pleasure of knowing him and working along side him. Greg had a quick wit, mostly filled with one liners and always cheerful to be around. He loved his wife and kids and his only “daughter”, Marlee, his little dog with everything he had and put them before anything else. Greg was one of the biggest sports fanatics you’d ever meet. He’d be the first one at the field/event whenever he could. He cheered for his beloved Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his Brooke Bruins. He supported all kids, playing any sport from any school. You never know where he’d pop up.
