Greg was born at Long Prairie Hospital on June 25th, 1981. He grew up on the family farm by Browerville with his parents Joseph and Mary, sister Jacqui, brothers; Jason, Ryan, and Brad. Despite Greg’s disability, he lived his life to its fullest. As a child, Greg would wrestle, play football, and do wheelies with his siblings. In high school, Greg competed in the Special Olympics and earned several medals over the years. He loved to play cards, cribbage, and board games. Greg often filled his time with working on his computer, woodworking, and making paracord bracelets. He never kept idle for long. He worked at S.T.E.P. Inc for 20 years and made many friends there. He lived at Hidden Acres AFC with Dion and Jamesty Claseman for over 15 years.
Greg always had a smile on his face which made you wonder what he was up to next. His love for the outdoors was expressed through hunting and fishing. He enjoyed his trips out to South Dakota for prairie dog hunting. He learned how to turkey hunt from Dion and shared his love and talent with his family. Greg enjoyed deer hunting with his brothers, dad, uncles, cousins, and friends over the years. The comradery, games, and stories were always the highlight of the weekend. He enjoyed going fishing and took several trips during the summer with his family. Greg enjoyed joking around and just being around people. He was able to build on his faith thanks to Jamesty and Dion and went to church in Clotho. Jamesty was like a second mother to him and took him to several appointments over the years. He had a special song “Out of My Hands” by Jeremy Camp that helped soothe his soul during stressful times. Greg was known for his smile and big heart. He was the best of us in every way. He was awesome, wonderful, brave, and the strongest person we knew.
Greg is survived by his parents, Joseph and Mary Lamusga; sister Jacqueline (Jason) Dahms; brothers Jason Lamusga, Ryan Lamusga, and Brad (Susanna) Lamusga; Nieces and nephews Hailee and Harrison Dahms, Brayden, Brooklyn, Madison and Weston Lamusga, MaryGayle, and Renee Lamusga; Special Friend Jessica Arnson; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
