Greig was our much loved son, brother, family member, friend and colleague.
Shortly after his 25th birthday, he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer, Cholangiocarcinoma. Greig fought his battle with bravery, determination and dignity. Sadly, 6 months after diagnosis, Greig passed away.
Greig had the most beautiful smile, infectious laugh and put those around him instantly at ease with his warm and welcoming character. He loved nothing more than being outdoors, surrounded by his beloved animals and spending quality time with loved ones. Greig always had a sense of adventure and at the age of 16 he travelled solo to Australia to spend a month with family. Having a keen passion for horses from a very young age, Greig volunteered every weekend to muck out and take care of the horses at a local farm, where he learned how to horse ride. In his adult life, Greig owned three beautiful horses, Simba, Beau and Kipper. His love for horses also led him to his career working for a Police Force as a groom at the Mounted Branch, although he was fondly given the honourary title as “Yard Manager….” As well as his love for animals, Greig enjoyed skiing and deep-sea diving and his hobbies took him exploring to many different countries. Although 25 years was far too short a life, we are so thankful that his sense of adventure allowed him to pack in so many amazing experiences and create lasting memories which family, friends and colleagues cherish.
