Greg was born October 11, 1956 in Pampa, Texas to Marshall Albert and Bobbie Louise (Ayers) Gann. He retired from NGR Power Plant in Jewett, after 34 years of service, as a Safety Manager. Gregg married the love of his life, Linda Carol Phillips on January 12, 1996 in Mexia, Texas.
Greg was a true Christian, he put God first, then family, and others. He was a very selfless man, always willing to help anyone in need. He was a dedicated prayer warrior and when praying for individuals, no matter a how long it took, he was going to call each one by name. Greg loved his family and there was never any question or doubt, they knew if they needed him, he would be there for them. He enjoyed family gathering, especially, when Justin and his family could be there with them; living out of the country, he didn’t get to see them often enough.
Greg loved music. He enjoyed playing Blues music on his harmonica. Justin’s love for music was, evidently, passed on from his dad. Greg was very patriotic and very proud to be an American; he loved the USA. Something else that was very special to him was his faithful companion, Baylor, who has been in training to become a therapy dog.
Greg was a longtime active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Mexia.
Greg was preceded in death by his parents, Marshall and Bobbie (Ayers) Gann; and brothers, Mike, Gary, and Bill Gann.
He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Linda Gann of Mexia; children, Justin Gann and wife, Kendall of Hungary, Misty Barrientez and husband, Pete of Palestine, Tara Waggener of Wortham, and Brittney Wood of Wortham; grandchildren, Logan, Teigny, Dillyn, Mason, Addison, Hunter, Breckyn and Britton; brother, James Allen Gann; a number of nieces and nephews; and Baylor.
