Rueschhoff, Gregg S.
May 17, 1960 – Dec 31, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family of Gregg Rueschhoff announces his sudden passing on December 31, 2018. Gregg was born on May 17, 1960 in West Point, NE. Gregg is lovingly remembered by his wife of 36 years, Janet (Graybeal) Rueschhoff, his two children, Jason Rueschhoff and Lisa Rueschhoff, his daughter-in-law Jiear Rueschhoff and son-in-law Rod Trice. Gregg was recently a proud new grandfather to Jemma Rueschhoff, born June, 2018. Gregg also leaves behind his mother Janice Rueschhoff, his siblings, Jeff (Tracy) Rueschhoff, Jerry (Jodi) Rueschhoff, Julie Schmidt and Steve (Darcie) Rueschhoff, mother-in-law Leona Graybeal, and many nieces and nephews. Gregg was preceded in death by his father, Leo Rueschhoff, and most recently by his father-in-law Dick Graybeal, who passed away in October, 2018.
Gregg’s quick wit and zest for life made him a fast friend of many. Gregg had a way of making everyone he connected with feel special, whether they were a family member, lifelong friend, or a cashier at the local Menards or Costco. Gregg possessed a generous and giving spirit and built many of his hobbies and pastimes around generating happiness by sharing with others. This was true of his passion for creating BBQ or other culinary delicacies. He was his happiest when out at the lake with family or friends, always excited to take anyone out for a jet ski or boat ride. Gregg had close connections to numerous people through his various interests. As a result, he leaves behind a multitude of family and friends who will miss him dearly.
Gregg was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather and was often the epicenter for his extended family. He was a natural teacher and trusted counselor for all who knew him, always giving sound advice when asked. He was very proud of his children, whom he and Janet raised to be wonderful adults. He was also very fond of their dog, Buster, and grand-dog, Baylee, whom he spoiled relentlessly.
In addition to his devotion to family, Gregg had an accomplished career as a pension consultant and Enrolled Actuary for over thirty years. He was also an Associate of the Society of Actuaries and a member of the American Academy of Actuaries. Gregg was a Principal at Milliman. Gregg was a practical and engaging consultant, and his clients loved his down-to-earth, hard-working style. His fellow consultants remember him for his ability to take complicated pension reports and boil them down to easily understandable conclusions.
