Gregory L. Krouskop, 58, of Xenia, went to be with the Lord Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, following a 2 1/2 year battle with cancer. He was born May 8, 1960, in Bellefontaine, the son of Richard and Susa Ann “Susie” Hites Krouskop. His father survives in Clovis, N.M., and his mother preceded him in death.
Greg married Tina Flory on Aug. 24, 1991, in Springfield.
Greg is survived by his loving and adoring wife and soul mate, Tina; two sons, Derek (Ondrea Martin) Flory, of Miami, Fla., and Anthony Krouskop of Xenia; two daughters, Jackalyn Atkins of Albuquerque, N.M., and Lacey Krouskop of Bellefontaine; two sisters, Kimberly (Alan) Bowman of Orosi, Calif., and Michelle Krouskop of Columbus; father- and mother-in-law, Doyle and Ellie Flory of Troy; and nieces and nephews and their families; and many precious friends.
Greg was an avid sports fan all his life, and loved the Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Bengals and The Ohio State Buckeyes most of all. No matter where he and Tina lived the last 27 years, he remained a loyal fan to his favorite Ohio teams. His gift of storytelling was particularly evident whenever a conversation centered around sports. He rarely missed a baseball game on TV, especially while battling cancer. His laughter and love of a good gag made so many people in his life feel special and appreciated.
Greg made it his mission to make others smile. He was a hard worker his whole life, and battled cancer with that same vigor.
He rarely complained or got discouraged, as he firmly believed and shared with others that God would heal him either way. He, instead, turned his thoughts toward others. Greg was an encourager and a champion of those who struggled. His daily texts to so many family and friends will never be forgotten.
Greg loved his Lord and family and friends deeply, and he will be greatly missed by so many people across the country.
Greg leaves an indelible footprint of laughter, legacy and love on many people who are blessed to call him friend.
