He graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. During his career, Kreg worked at Beacon Stamp and Seal, Halliburton, Healdton Community Library and several other jobs before retiring in recent years.
Kreg was baptized as a kid at First Baptist Church Fox, where he attended Sunday School and church. When he moved to Healdton, he transferred his membership to First Baptist Church Healdton. He had a scientific mind, but he believed in God and the power of prayer.
During his childhood, he was active in Boy Scouts, attending Camp Simpson with his troop. He also played trumpet in the high school band. Kreg fell in love with NASA/spaceflight, movies, TV shows, books and rock ‘n’ roll, especially The Beatles. The science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke was his favorite author. Those were still his passions later in life as well, as he wrote so eloquently about the subjects on social media. He enjoyed Dr. Pepper, tacos and pizza.
Kreg was so proud of his family, as evidenced by a moving speech he gave at his mother’s funeral in 2016. He was affectionately known to his nephews and nieces as “Uncle Bub.”
He was preceded in death by both parents as well as a brother-in-law, Gary Glenn; nephew, Paul Keith Hunter, Jr.; great nephew, Tres Galicia.
