Gregory Wayne Grenard, 59, of La Junta passed away on Monday, April 25th, 2022, at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs. Greg was born to Ruth Muth Grenard and Max L. Grenard on April 1st, 1963, in La Junta.

He was a 1981 graduate of Swink High School where he was class president, and a third-generation attendee of Swink School. In 1985, Greg graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business from Colorado State University in Fort Collins.

While attending CSU, Greg was a member of the Farm House Fraternity. His love and passion for agriculture inspired him to land his first job as a loan officer for Federal Land Bank in Lamar.

Greg was very involved in the Arkansas Valley community. He was on the board of the 4-H foundation, South Swink Water Association, and Farmers’ Lateral Company, to mention a few.
