Born in Princeton, Greg’s family moved to Osoyoos when he was a young child. He lived his whole life in Osoyoos. After working for a short time at the Rickshaw restaurant and Pope and Talbot mill, Greg spent the next thirty five years working for the Town of Osoyoos as an equipment operator.
He was predeceased by his father and mother: Joe and Dot Tweedy and his sister Gayle.
Greg will be remembered and sadly missed by his wife and best friend Linda; his treasured children Todd (Laura) of Victoria, BC, Shara (Brenden) of Surrey, BC; his dog Chief and cat Vader; his mother-in-law Nanny Kaye; brothers and sisters-in –law; many nieces and nephews; extended family and friends. The Osoyoos community residents will all miss him greatly and will forever remember him in our hearts.
A memorial celebration of life was held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday May 14, 2011 at the Sonora Centre.
In lieu of flowers, donations are gratefully accepted for the Heart & Stroke Foundation, 4 – 1551 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9 or the Southern Okanagan Association for Integrated Community Living, PO Box 138, Oliver, BC V0H 1T0.

Greg introduced Tim and I 25 years ago and here we are married with 3 children later! We’ll never forget (and sometimes forgive- ha ha) him for that. We will both miss seeing him and waving to him as we saw him going about his job with the town. Our condolences to his family – he will be missed by many. Take care.
