Greg loved to eat! Especially good home-cooked soul food! He was most famous for saying "I don't want NO GREENS on my plate!" or "Who made the Mac and Cheese? It better be right!" In addition to his food he loved sports with his glass of wine! Greg did not play about Sunday Night Football or his basketball games. he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He loved to tell stories about very skilled abilities back in the day!
