Greg was born on May 27, 1961, in Riverton, Wyoming to Thaine C and Vi Fleak. Greg was the youngest child of 6. He spent his childhood growing up in Riverton playing many sports, football, basketball, track, baseball, and softball.
As youngsters Greg and his sister Jody were constant companions often creating mischief and memories bringing laughter and joy to their family.

Greg graduated in 1980 from Riverton High School in Riverton, Wyoming. He played both ways helping the team win the 1979 Wyoming State Championship Football team.

Greg moved to Gillette, WY taking a job as manager at the Village Inn where he met the love of his life Bobbi. They went on to marry on December 9, 1989, spending their honeymoon in Billings MT. From that day forward they celebrated every Anniversary Christmas Shopping in Billings. Greg worked hard to support his family working in the oil and gas drilling industry as a driller for most of his life. Spending many years working alongside his brothers-in-law and father-in-law making great memories.

Greg and Bobbi happily welcomed their first and only son in 1990 Anthony Fleak. Followed by two beautiful girls, Kayla Schwartz in 1991, and Shantel Shanks in 1993. The family spent their early childhood traveling and watching him playing his favorite summertime sport Fast pitch Softball. Where he perfected the art of pitching creating fear in the hearts of many who faced him at the plate.

When he wasn’t working Greg loved spending time with his wife, kids, and grandkids. He was a great father always leading the fun riding roller coasters, playing ball outside, and spending time at Keyhole. As their greatest fan he attended all his children’s activities and High-School Graduations. Greg watched his son follow in his footsteps playing high-school football. Along with his wife, daughters, mom, and sister he was privileged to attend his son’s graduation from the University of Wyoming. He watched as his girls fell in love and walked them down the aisle giving them away. Truth be told he made it clear to each of his new son-in-law’s that he loved them first and they would forever belong to him. Greg gained two wonderful son-in-law’s that he would claim as his own.

Greg and Bobbi celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary on the long-awaited honeymoon trip in Cancun Mexico. Where he surprised his loving wife asking her to renew their vows!

Greg spent the final 11 years of his life in his absolute favorite role Grandpa! He and Bobbi were blessed with four beautiful grandchildren. Three girls Kylie, Raelyn, and Adalynn and one grandson Tyson. He was wrapped around each of their fingers. Always the Champion of fun, Grampa, when not attending one of their activities could be found hanging out with his grandkids and loving their time, especially camping. Grandpa was the best wrestling buddy in the world, no can ever feel that void. He will be missed.

Greg is survived by his wife of 33 years Bobbi Fleak, son Anthony Fleak, daughters Kayla (Corey)Schwartz, Shantel (Dalton)Shanks, grandchildren Kylie, Tyson, Raelyn, and Adalynn. His sister Jody (Ted)Ray, and brother Bill (Lyn)Fleak. As well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, friends, and loved ones.
