Greg then turned to his true love, the land, and began farming with his dad. Greg was married briefly during this time. He always wanted a daughter, and the marriage brought him 2 step-daughters, Natalie and Lillian. Greg said, “They are the best little girls in the world.” He so enjoyed going to their school events, bringing them to the farm, carving pumpkins together, and going Trick-or-Treating in costume himself.
Greg was keenly aware of the importance of hometown loyalty. He tried to do business within our area. Greg has a sandwich named after him at the local Ice Cream Shoppe.
Greg was referred to as a “gentle giant.” He supported the Chimbote, Peru fundraiser each year, buying alpaca blankets, which he loved, and then gifting them. He had a soft spot for homeless animals, mostly kitties, many of which still live at the farm. He complimented people for jobs well done. He said “Thank you,” to everyone, often with a gift of appreciation. He gave presents when there was no occasion at all.
He was known for his generous spirit, hearty sense of humor, genuine kind nature, vivid imagination and creativity. He often said, “I’ve been thinking…” He was ‘the man with the plan.’
Greg was a conscientious farmer, following his dad’s no-till practices. He researched, asked questions, and made good choices. His goal was not only to keep the family farm alive, but also to preserve the land.
Greg died Monday, October 7, 2019, at Sanford Hospital in Fargo at age 38. He leaves his parents, one brother, Jared (Lena), 3 nephews, 2 nieces, several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer memorials to a no-kill animal rescue or St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

Funeral Service will be held Thursday, October 17, 2019, at 2:30PM in Evans Funeral Home, Carrington.

So sorry for your loss. Prayers to all of Greg’s family and friends during this difficult time.
Our family will miss him every day and our lives will never be the same.
Greg was a good friend and at one time he worked for us at the shop. Greg was a very thoughtful young man. He was kind and would help anyone. He was very thoughtful and kind. He had a heart of gold. He always liked kids. I can only think that there was a young lady out there that would have been blessed to have Greg for a husband and father. We will miss him. We will miss and remember Greg with his smile and big heart.
I’ll never forget Greg. He’s one of my best friends ever. He will be missed very much. So many thoughts and prayers for his family and loved ones.
