On May 11, 2000, God blessed Greg and Dawn with a wonderful son, Colton, and in 2004 the family moved to Georgetown, Texas. His innate knowledge of computers allowed him to excel as a software support team leader with Texas Mutual Insurance Company."A member of San Gabriel Presbyterian Church in Georgetown, he appreciated the compassion of this church family and enjoyed their men's group. His love of the outdoors was heightened by many years at summer church camp, both as a camper and as a counselor.

He would start a conversation with anyone, believing that all had unique qualities that were worth his time and attention. Greg was a rabid Texas Longhorn fan, who loved going to the football games with his family. Above all, he loved his wife and son and took great pride in providing for them."Greg is survived by his wife, Dawn, and his son, Colton; his parents, Darwin and Nancy of Round Rock; sister and brother-in-law, Rhonda and Bobby Roten of Round Rock; two nieces, Megan and Mackenzie Roten of Round Rock; godparents, Uncle Daniel and Aunt Sadie Blaha of Taylor; parents-in-law, Leroy and Pat Mynar of Bryan; sister-in-law, Shannon Mynar, and her fiance, Patrick Wallace of Richmond; best friend, Mark Olsen of Taylor."Visitation was held Tuesday, January 2, 2007 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at The Gabriels Funeral Chapel, 393 North IH 35, Georgetown, TX. 78627.
