Greg was born on March 25, 1954, in Clinton, Iowa, the son of John and Eulaine Stokesberry. He was united in marriage to Patricia Weis on Aug. 16, 1975, in Springbrook, Iowa. Greg was self-employed as a civil process server, car show promoter and designed and produced shirts for various events in the community. He was a member of St. Ludmila Catholic Church in Cedar Rapids, president of Flying Eyeballs Motor Club, Cedar Rapids Stamp Club and Knights of Columbus 5677.
Greg enjoyed reading, collecting antiques, watching "Jeopardy," doing crossword puzzles, attending Kernels baseball games, and praying and leading the Rosary. Most importantly, nothing compared to the love Greg had for his family, his faith in God, and living life to its fullest. He especially enjoyed being Papa to Jon and Medow. He will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed.
