    My condolences to Gregg’s family.
    Over the past 11 years at Mentor/Coloplast Gregg has taught me alot about engineering, but even more importantly he loved talking hunting and fishing. He will be missed.

    Aunt Nancy, Uncle Joe, and all of Gregg’s family:
    I am so sorry for the loss of Gregg. He was much too young and I’m sure your hearts are broken!
    I remember the times we shared when we were young at family reunions and holidays spent together at Ryegate and in Miles City with fondness! I remember Gregg as a nice, fun guy with such a great smile! He always had something to say and was so friendly! He had a wonderful way of making everyone feel welcome. I’m sure he’s having some good conversations with my brothers and the rest of our family in heaven. May you find peace and comfort in this difficult time. Love and hugs to you all!

    I had worked with Gregg for the past 27 plus years. He was one of my closest friends. He was an extraordinary Engineer for Mentor/ Coloplast – automated processes and/or brought the technology in-house. We did a lot of things together – softball, bowling, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, meat raffles, and cutting wood for the Winter months. There will be a large void in my life now but have great memories of him. One thing about Gregg, he was the only person that I knew that would start laughing before he could finish his joke.

    Wish peace to the family members during this difficult time,

    Tim and Luann Kramer

    I had the privilege to work with Gregg for almost 4 years. He treated everyone with respect and was always willing to take on new engineering challenges. He had a unique sense of humor that was fun to be around. It was well known the significant contributions Gregg made to the company over the years and he took pride in his work.

    It was also fun to hear the stories of raising wild birds, hunting, fishing, and challenges that come from living on his own in the woods. He has touched the lives of many people at Coloplast and will be dearly missed.

    Stacy, Rachel and Matt;
    I know Gretchen has met you, but I was thankful to be able to put faces on the names I have heard for a number of years. Your Grandmother is very proud of you. To repeat what I said at your dad’s memorial, I am so sorry for your loss. Remembering the very good that he was – that is the legacy he leaves – will serve you well. Blessings on all of you.
