Obituary for Gregory Jon "GREG" Preheim

In Memoriam of Gregory Jon Preheim
My very best friend, Greg Preheim’s journey came to an end on November 20, 2018
It was lymphoma cancer (not his liver) that got him skidding in sideways. Yes,
even Greg was surprised when he received his diagnosis. He really didn’t want an
obituary, but he’s not here anymore…
We shared a wonderful life living and creating art side by side for 32 adventurous
years full of LOVE, WORTH, BELONGING, FREEDOM, & FUN!
My honey, Greg was a very proud father to sons Heath and Ash (mom Shirley Preheim).
He was a fantastic big brother to sisters Cheryl Koch and Patty Batcheller. He was
a wonderful uncle to Kristin, Laura, Jay, Jill, Natalie, Andrew. And a great uncle to great
nephew August. He was also a Brother in law to; Steven (Lorri) and William (Laura) Sill.
Greg always had a blast hanging out with his friends and was usually the life of any
gathering. He was so very happy to have spent our last anniversary with his best friend
since childhood, Duane Aman, wife Connie, daughter Brooke, and granddaughter Izzi.
Greg was overjoyed to have spent his last Birthday (73rd) with his sons and his sisters
and family. We also had one last goodbye party with our wonderful friends Bill and Deb
Hansen.
Greg Preheim was truly the most caring, loving, devoted husband any gal could ever ask for! The very first day
we met, Greg asked me to marry him. I did so four years later, and I’m so very grateful that I did.
A few FUN Facts about Greg: He truly believed in Global warming, was a jock in high
school, and failed painting in college. Ironically, for 55 years, he earned his living
“painting” murals, signs, and portraits! He often drew portraits of people he cared
about and gave them to them. May you all treasure yours, as I will mine.
Greg was preceded in death by his little brother, Lee, his parents, Mylo and Dorothy Preheim, his brother-in-law
Harry Batcheller, his in-laws, Patricia and Jack Stoltz, and brother-in-law John Koch.
As per his request, there will be no funeral service. Greg will be cremated and put into our special cookie jar
where I will someday join him.
I will be hosting a celebration of his life on Saturday, December 1, 2018 from Noon - 4pm
at the home that we joyfully created together. 45362 SD Hwy 46 Irene, SD
Sincerely, Theresa
Extremely proud to have been the second
Mrs. Greg Preheim
