Greg was born in Maquoketa, Iowa on October 20, 1951, the son of Dale and Carla (Wolff) Scott.

He had been the Plant Manager for Square D, Federal Mogul and later, Watlow Electrical. He retired in 2015. Greg never met a stranger and truly cared for the well-being of everyone he knew. In his free time, Greg enjoyed a wide variety of hobbies. If he was not working or spending quality time with his family, you would find him out on the golf course enjoying the day, in the basement learning a new favorite song on his favorite guitar, or in the garage fine-tuning one of his classic cars so it would be ready for the next little Sunday drive. Greg also enjoyed sports and was an avid fan of the Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs.
