His children remember him as a fun and loving father who encouraged them to pursue their goals and always supported them in all of their endeavors. Greg was accomplished at photography and all things media, and was often seen taking spectacular pictures of some of life’s most memorable moments. He was a generous and dedicated individual who loved his craft and who was passionate about making people’s memories last a lifetime through photography. He was an active and dedicated member of Liberty Baptist Church in Hampton Virginia and was often seen manning a video camera during service, working sound, or helping in anyway he could as a member of the production team.
