Greg was born in Grand Forks, ND on October 17, 1959 to Ron and Retta Wixo. In 1970 the family moved to Great Falls, Montana which is where he graduated High School in 1978. Post-graduation, the family made the cross-state adventure to Fargo, ND in June of 1979. Greg then secured a position at Dairy Queen where he met his future wife, Lisa. They tied the knot on May 12, 1984. They moved to Bismarck where they started their family before ultimately landing back in Fargo, ND.
Greg furthered his education by getting an Associates Degree at Interstate Business College. This landed him a job at US Bank where he recently celebrated 25 years of service.
Greg was extraordinarily passionate in his faith. He was extensively involved in the Catholic Church by attending adoration, distributing communion, teaching religious education, performing readings at mass and participating in the Knights of Columbus. Greg was fully committed to living a spiritual and full life by being an example to all he encountered. He was called to lead a life of service through the Catholic Church as well as in his personal endeavors. In his spare time, Greg was an avid bowler, inspired by his love of music and a committed Vikings fan. He loved playing and watching any and all sports. Specifically, those of and with his kids, grandkids, as well as his many nieces and nephews. If he was not on the sidelines coaching, he was always the best cheerleader. In recent years, he has excelled in his role as Grandpa by fully embracing his youthful spirit with his two grandkids. Greg lived out his life as the most genuine, compassionate, loving, free-spirited, and supportive Husband, Father, Sibling, Son, and Friend.
