Greg had many talents and hobbies. He shared his love of railroads and trains with friends and family. Greg had a giant track at his home, hand laid and carefully thought always ensuring it was built to perfection. He held a deep passion for anything automotive, from drag racing; to building his own street rods; and an honorable nod to his many passions through his career choice as a mechanic. Eventually leading him to own Denomme Automotive, Greg’s truck business of over fifty years.
Greg and Jan enjoyed many rod runs around Canada and the United States. Often in the big yellow 1948 Chevy pick up or his fuchsia navy topped 1937 Chevy Cabriolet convertible. Greg was also an avid hockey fan who loved watching his children and grandchildren on the ice, or cozy at home under a blanket watching the Toronto Maple Leaf’s. Greg was also a talented woodworker; helping build the beloved home on the lake as well as many squirrel feeders, shelves, and odds and ends around his home. Above all, Greg’s strong faith in God and deep love for his family were always his top priority.
