School and attended Mankato State University.  He was later drafted into the United States
Army where he served in Vietnam. Gregg was proud to be a US Veteran.
An avid outdoorsman Gregg had a love for fishing, trapshooting, and above all, hunting. He
made many memories with family and friends in the woods of Le Sueur County, the
mountains of New Mexico, the hills of Alaska, the waters of Canada, the prairies of the
Dakotas, and the grasslands of South Africa. He loved life and lived it to the fullest sharing
his smile and infectious laugh with friends, family, and everyone he encountered. Although
he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2006, he did not slow down. He lived by his motto, “It
is what it is” every day. Whether he was working hard, playing hard, or handling the cards
that he was dealt without a complaint, he embodied these words. His magical thumbs were
known for creating beautiful flower and vegetable gardens which he graciously shared with
others, finding a few winners while pulling tabs or scratching lotto tickets, and schooling
opponents in Euchre.  Although he was a man of few words, his friends and family knew
they were loved.
He leaves behind the love of his life and caretaker, Louisa, his wife of 47 years and his
beloved children, Tricia (Scott) Ruud of Belle Plaine, Julie (Matt) Carlson of Bloomington,
and Brian Voss of Belle Plaine. His grandchildren, whom he cherished and was forever
proud of will deeply miss his love, support, and life lessons. Alec, Griffin and Lari Ruud,
along with Cooper Carlson gave him the title, Grandpa, which he carried with pride. He also
leaves missing him, his mother, Mary Jane Voss, siblings, Diane (Windy) Block, Sue (Jerry)
Gill, Deb Voss, Randy Voss (special friend Ann Osborn), and Scott Voss. Brother and Sister
in Laws, Art (Barb) Straub, Don (Jane) Straub, Mary Straub, Janet Straub, Sam (LuAnn)
Straub, Pete (Sylvia) Straub, Lyle (Connie) Straub, and Susie (Rick) Edberg. Many nieces
and nephews will also cherish memories of him.
He will share a Hauenstein over a round of trapshooting with his Dad, Earl Voss in heaven
and many other loved ones that preceded him in death. His legacy of unconditional love will
live on.  “Family is not an important thing, it is everything.” Michael J Fox
