Greg was born October 18, 1950, and raised in Marengo, Iowa. He was the son of Gerald and Vivian Harrison. He graduated from Iowa Valley Community School District, Marengo, in 1970. After graduation, Greg worked in the family furniture store and funeral service businesses. Greg was exceptionally talented at working on electronics and electrical equipment. Electronics and CB radios were his passion. He also loved listening to 60’s and 70’s music and was very interested in space exploration, current events, politics and world news.

Greg cherished his family and friendships above all else. He was kind and compassionate by nature. He sat by his mother’s side religiously for several years as she battled Alzheimer’s Disease. He loved hearing news about his family and their interests. He was a big presence in the lives of his family, and he will be missed.

Greg’s family extends our thanks to Jones County Regional Medical Center and Kloster Funeral Home for their assistance to Greg and his family. Thank you to Monticello Nursing and Rehab Center, and each of their staff and nurses, who provided compassionate care to Greg over the past two years, with special mention to Cassie, his favorite nurse.
