Gregg moved to our community in 2007 from Atlanta, Ga., where he was in facilities management leadership for Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia State University. His volunteer service began long before retirement with multiple roles at All Saint’s Episcopal Church and First Baptist of Atlanta. He also volunteered at the Piedmont Park Art Show and Project Open Hand/Atlanta.

Gregg is a graduate of Southern Polytechnic Institutions with a BS in Architecture. He is married to Peter Franklin. Hobbies include visual arts, home design, woodworking and reading. He would like to be remembered as being a thoughtful, caring and exuberant member of the community. 

The mission of Second Wind is to identify those outstanding volunteers who contribute so much to the quality of life in our community and to provide recognition of retirees sixty years and over who had a useful and productive life continuing beyond retirement, while others paused to rest.  They caught a ‘second wind’  and began a new career of service to the community and to mankind.

Second Wind Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) organization and welcomes nominations for induction.  Requests for nomination forms may be sent to carolbrowning72@gmail.com.
