Gregory L. Thurber (75) passed away peacefully on November 20, 2023, at home with his family in Centennial, Colorado. He was born on August 18, 1948, in Ogden, Utah. Greg displayed artistic talents from a young age that led to a lifelong career in art and design.

As a young man, Greg ran track on a scholarship at Ricks College, following which he served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Eastern States mission. Greg graduated from BYU where he studied fine arts.

Greg had a lifelong love of nature, finding joy in hiking, fishing, and biking. He was a gifted photographer who appreciated the beauty of God’s creations.
