Greg Etue

Professionally, Greg was a salesman for most of his life. As a good friend and colleague said, “Greg is probably already selling in the sky. Greg was good at what he did because he was honest, hardworking and dependable. Greg excelled when challenged by a problem and took good care of his clients. He took pride in knowing the intricacies of whatever he was selling.”

Greg loved to travel and play golf in his spare time and was very skilled at doing woodworking projects. He was a member of the First Christian Church of Tyrone.

One of Greg’s best qualities was his out going personality. Greg never met a stranger. He always loved meeting new people and had a heart for helping those in need. A private graveside service with family and close friends was held on September 3, 2021 at the College Park Cemetery. The family asks that donations be made to Southwest Christian Care, www.swchristiancare.org or St. Nick’s Closet, www.stnickscloset.com.
