    Greg was someone that I just started to get to know. He would come and do field trips for Eakin Elementary. So sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

      My family was saddened beyond words to learn today that Mr. Greg had passed away. Both my grand children had him as their bus driver. They loved him dearly ❤️. He was always so kind and took such good care of them. We will never forget him. We will pray 🙏 for his family.

    I work for Metro schools and have been Greg’s dispatcher in the past. He knew the Hillwood area like the back of his hand and was helpful with coverage for the students. It is hard to believe he is no longer with us. I extend my deepest condolences to his beloved wife he spoke highly of and the rest of his family. This is truly a tremendous loss. I’ll be praying for your strength in this time of need.

    Last year my son talked about “Mr. Greg” ALL THE TIME. He sat in the front seat and talked with him on his bus rides to/from school each day. My son will greatly miss seeing Mr. Greg. Deepest of our sympathies to his family.

    God sent His angels to take another kind & friendly bus driver back home to Heaven with Him!! He was such a nice person with a hugh smile usually on his face! Greg, you will truly be missed! I’m praying for the family as well as his Hillwood High School cluster drivers/ co-workers!! May God comfort each of you in this most difficult time. Lift up your eyes to the hills from whence cometh your help. Your help cometh from the Lord so lean and depend on him and call on His name for He never fails! God bless you all!!
