Gregory Jordan Bushong entered into eternal life on Jan. 17, 2018, in Somerset, Kentucky.
Greg was born on June 5, 1963, in Bowling Green, Kentucky, the loving son of Larry and Wanda Holloway Bushong.
He was a graduate of Somerset High School and Somerset Vocational School and attended Somerset Community College. He worked for years as an auto mechanic and was known to be able to fix anything. He was a "jack of all trades," who could remodel a home or fix any computer. Greg was an avid reader and a fearless animal advocate. He was a dedicated volunteer for the Pulaski County Humane Society and was a Master Gardener. He was "always a Briar Jumper," a loyal UK fan and the ultimate NASCAR fan.
Greg was known as a very kind and generous person, who loved his family unconditionally, and they will forever cherish his sweet memories.
He is survived by his mother, Wanda Mabry, of Somerset; his father, Larry (Joyce) Bushong, of Glasgow; his sons, Nicolas (Haley) Bushong, of Louisville, and Conner Bushong, of Somerset; his very special, long-time friend, Cheryl Cecil, of Bronston; his aunt, Dr. Rhonda (Ben) Cormney, of Richmond; his uncle, Jim G. (Janet) Holloway, of Glasgow; his cousins, Kyle, Gabe and Regan Cormney, and Wesley and Cameron Holloway; his faithful canine companion, Amber Doodle. His NASCAR buddies and online friends from around the country, who knew him as "Boonie West," will also mourn his passing.
Greg was preceded in death by his stepfather, Marvin Mabry; his grandparents, James G. and Maxie Carter Holloway, and Ernest and Julia Smith Bushong; and his great-uncle, William Holloway.
