    Dang sad to hear of your passing buddy. You were a good friend to us over here at AutoZone and a great guy! Your goofy cheer will be missed. "take er easy Greg" (he'll take it any way he can get it, was always his retort)... Peace be with us all... Godspeed Greg!

    I grew up right around the corner from Greg. We rode our bikes every day and played hide-n-go seek, climbed trees, played in the stream, etc....wonderful memories of him. RIP Greg, see you on the other side brother..

  9. Colleen (Johnson) Remmers

    We lived across the street from Greg when he was a little boy in Pecatonica. He would always come over and say his name was Gregory Scott Pals. It would tickle us so. He would always work on his bike and then come over and ask my Dad if he could fix it for him. Our thoughts prayers are with the family.
