He coached baseball and basketball for the P.A.L. program and home school basketball teams over the years. Pastor Greg was always just a phone call away from anyone in need no matter what! He served on the Smithville Architectural Review Board. Was secretary for the Garden State Fellowship of the GARBC. Greg was an avid reader, enjoyed collecting stamps and John Wayne movies. He was a die-hard "Yankee" fan! He loved camping with his wife and friends.
