Gregory Thomas Monrad
Greg was kind and creative. He played guitar which was the perfect accompaniment for his favorite music: the blues. He loved cars, and his talent to fix almost anything came in handy because many cars found their way into Greg’s life.
He made people happy with his amazing barbeque recipes and passion for cooking. He proudly owned two BBQ restaurants where his tall stature made for an imposing character in the kitchen.
He felt he was blessed with the “Monrad luck” because things just had a way of working out for Greg. Even in his final days, when he received a few essentials from his sisters, he told them that he was “the luckiest guy in Omaha.” Always positive, always grateful; he was a thoughtful son, brother, uncle, stepfather, and friend who will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved him.
Greg was preceded in death by his parents, Emlin and Eveonna. He is survived by his sisters, Becki Haviland (Jeff) and Tammi Bishop (Colin), and his niece and nephews, Rylan, Brogan, and Costen. He also leaves a wife, Barbara Cameron, and a stepson, Jason. There are many more friends and family, near and far, and Greg’s sisters would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone for their kindness and support.
