Greg graduated from San Antonio's Winston Churchill High School in 1979. He went on to receive his AAS in Laser Technology from TSTI Waco in 1981. After graduating from TSTI, Greg held a variety of technician, supervisor, and R&D positions in the Geophysical, Medical devices and Semiconductor industries. He worked in Houston, Phoenix, and primarily San Antonio; most recently as a Senior Mechanical Technician at Seno Medical, helping to develop new instruments for early cancer detection.

During his life Gregory had a love for adventure and a quirky sense of humor. He loved the outdoors, and enjoyed hiking, fishing, hunting, motor cycling, and gardening. He prized himself on growing blue ribbon tomatoes and sharing them with friends and family. His other hobbies included Ham radio broadcasting, astronomy and spelunking. He spent many years volunteering with Boy Scouts of America & children's sports leagues. He will be dearly missed by many family members, friends, and colleagues.

Our heartfelt sympathy to Greg's children and family. We are going to miss Greg. We were so pleased that Greg joined us at Jerry's 80th birthday party on December 1st. The ol' guys from VLSI have known each other for over 30 years. Jerry, Greg, Woody ((Parker Wood) and Lynn Caton shared many good stories.

Good morning babe.today will be the most difficult day that I will face which is coming to visit you and seeing your handsome face for the last time . I'm going to try to be strong for you because I know that's what you would want.
I know you're in a more peaceful place now but I'm being selfish and would rather have you here surrounded by all of the people who love you dearly. You will always have a special place in my heart and I will never ever forget you and all of the great times we shared together. I love you always my sweet man ❤❤❤❤❤❤

Good morning honey bunny
I can't tell you how much my heart is hurting
I keep thinking about our talks,our plans for the future,the cruise we were going to take this summer,the next movie we were supposed to see....i keep looking at our pictures and all the great memories we made together and it makes me smile. I know god will help me heal my heart but at the moment the pain of not being able to hear your voice,see that smile with those adorable dimples,look into your beautiful blue eyes or to feel your touch is more than I can take. You were my everything,I'm so lost without you.
I look forward to the day that we meet again in heaven.
I love you forever and ever my sweet man ❤

We never would have believed when you called me from Houston the night before your surgery that you would not be coming home again. Our hearts are so heavy. We know God took you home for a reason, and someday we will see you again, but for now it's very hard to understand why someone who has so much to live for was taken home too soon. We will miss your smile and laughter, your kindness and friendship, and having you come over to visit us. No words can express how sad we feel. Rest in peace in God's loving arms, Greg. We love you and will miss you terribly. To Ben, Isabelle, and Bianca, Mike and I offer you our prayers, our love, our support, and our deepest sympathy. We love you and will always be here whenever you need us. All our love, Grammy and Grandpa Grimes

Greg with his two daughters, Isabelle and Bianca at the children's garden at the Botanical Gardens in the spring of 2018. He always loved teaching his daughters to garden, and this was a great place for them to learn from dad and spend quality time together on Saturdays. He was a wonderful father.
