In April of 1976, he, along with his family, confessed his belief in Christ while attending Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Waukegan under the leadership of the late Reverend Jonathan N. Lightfoot.

As a young man, he liked bingo and card games, and he also enjoyed traveling to places such as Las Vegas, New York, Washington, DC, the Carolina's and the Bahamas. Greg loved listening to "old school" music and attending concerts given by his favorite performer, Diana Ross.
