Greg worked as a Claim Representative at State Farm Insurance Company, where he retired from after 35 years of faithful service. Greg enjoyed going to the Railhead Smokehouse in Aledo to visit with his friends who he played Fantasy Football and solved the world’s problems with over a few drinks. His competitive nature inspired and drove those around him to strive to put their best efforts forward, even when the circumstances were difficult. He was also a lover of music, especially when it came to discussing records with his son, Ben. Greg had an inseparable bond with his pets, who will miss the quiet hours that he would spend holding them every day. He had a wonderful marriage to his wife, Denise, to whom he was married for over 29 years and was proud of their son, Ben. Greg had a tenacious spirit about him and always loved to make others laugh. He will be greatly missed by all who loved and knew him. He was preceded in death by his father, Charles Roy Jopling, and grandparents, Edmund and Colene Jopling and Ralph and Gracietta Books.
