After living most of his life in Hendersonville, NC Greg retired from Volvo Construction Equipment in 2007 and moved to Fleetwood in Ashe County to assist in operating the small non-profit Roads End Retreat and to serve as the Deacon at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Boone. He also serves as a volunteer with Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care in The High Country, as a Listener at The Listening Post at Appalachian State University and as a Chaplain at Camp Henry Outdoor School at Lake Logan Episcopal Center in Canton, NC. Greg enjoys retired life, regular exercise and his wife of 40 years, Jane and their dogs.
Why I Joined RISE:
Greg serves as an Ally at RISE to give back to the community in a more one-on-one, person-to-person relationship with those who need a helping hand to move out of poverty and homelessness. He has found the experience rewarding in helping set and track goals and brings a calming and supportive presence to the program.
