September 19, 1974 - September 1, 2015
Greg passed away suddenly at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 after a brief illness.
Greg was born on September 19, 1974 in Lanigan, Saskatchewan. He grew up in Lanigan attending school there as well as in Yorkton during his teen years while playing hockey with the Yorkton AAA Mallers. Following graduation, Greg spent some time playing Junior Hockey before returning to the Family Farm near Esk, in 1995.
Greg married Janelle Renwick on July 5, 1997 and together, they raised three sons – Trey, Kade, & Bostyn.
Hockey was a big part of Greg’s life. After his Junior years, Greg played for the Senior Pirates having great success in League and Provincial play. As the boys grew into hockey, Greg coached many of their teams in Lanigan, then Humboldt and Watson as the boys moved up to “AA” leagues. Greg knew the game well and that was evident in all his teams.
Greg had a great passion for farming. He has built a large, successful farm by hard work and constantly keeping up with the latest developments in the agricultural world. He took pride in keeping his machinery and equipment new and equipped with the latest technologies. Of course all of big machines were John Deere Green. He was ever aware of new trends in farming and looked forward to the positive changes that they would make. Greg loved the farm and he instilled this love in Janelle and the boys. The boys could operate the equipment at an early age and they understood the operation of a large successful farm. All of this love and pride is evident when one arrives on the yard and sees the home and buildings that they all have developed.
Greg’s greatest love was his family. Everything he did was focused on them and for them. Greg, Janelle and the boys worked, planned, and dreamed together. Greg and Janelle loved to travel with the boys exposing them to the world beyond the farm. They made numerous summer and winter trips in North America as a family, visiting places like Hawaii, the Caribbean Islands, Disneyland and Disneyworld, and they enjoyed many winter ski trips in Canada and the United States. For years, most summers were spent at Greenwater Lake, where there was never a quiet moment, spending hours on the water with the boat and evenings around the fire with family and friends. Greg always had time for the boy’s friends and others who stopped by. He was a perfect host.
Greg was predeceased by Grandparents John Daelick, and Jack and Violet Zenert.
Greg is survived by the love of his life, his wife of 18 years, JANELLE, their three sons, TREY (Megan Blair), KADE (Kennedy Morrow), and BOSTYN.
