Greg enjoyed many sports in his life. In bowling he made the 400 club, in softball he and his team mates brought home many trophies and enjoyed great accomplishments including winning the tournament with Greg being named MVP competing in the BC Provincials with his Smithers softball team.

Greg shared many of his accomplishments with those around him, receiving academic awards and scholarships in high school & possessing the uncanny ability to do complex mathematical equations in his head.
