    Greg was my first boss and taught me lessons that I still use today. I have fond memories working with him, including card games after we were done working. He was an amazing individual. Rest in peace.

    Our deepest sympathy to the Pankow family! As part of the Lawrence & Marcella Wagner family, we remember many trips to Caledonia for Sunday visits, playing cards and celebrations. Greg, with his gentle smile, always made us feel warmly welcome. We all miss those who are gone, but the good memories will heal the pain of the loss. Good memories to you!
