    My Dad was always there for me. I am so proud of the way he fought right up til the end. My dad worked hard and played even harder. Love you Dad!

    Mr. Settle was an honest, fair, and a stern man. I always immensely enjoyed our long talks together. He continued to let reason and causation dictate his thought process; denying irrational emotional confusion. I am delighted to have seen him recently albeit sadly, was the last time. He will be missed greatly. I am and will always be glad to call this man a friend.

    Greg and I met by phone in 2002. He spent countless hours over the phone teaching me about R/C engines. He invited me to come to Aurora after visiting me in Fla in 2006, to let me see 1st hand. He was never selfish with his knowledge. To the family he will be missed.

    My condolences. I’ll never forget the joy I felt when I made your dad laugh for the first time. I then saw what an incredible heart he had and how fiercely he loved his family. You’ve got one heck of an angel to look down on all of you.

    Greg always surprised me. Every time we ever talked at length he revealed a new talent or jewel of knowledge. So proud to have known him. Rest in peace Greg.

    I have been at a loss for words really. I owe my Dad so much for all he did for me and for my girls. He helped me and my husband raise them really. Changed diapers, bottle feedings, teaching them to ride bikes. My girls have nothing but love for this man, and I will forever be greatfull for his guidance and support. I always used to ask my Dad.. ” How are you today” and he would say
    ” Well… I’m still upright” I wish you were still here Dad. I’m so, so sad thinking of some milestones you will miss of Ella and Lylah. But I know you will be there in some shape or form, and Dad if there is any way you can make those two girls get along that would be great.. 🙂 Love you Dad. We will miss you so!

    I miss my grandpa and he has been a huge pat of my life. He will never be forgotten and he’s always in my heart.

  10. Ella Moran says:

    I miss my grandpa so very much. He means the world to me. He served this country, he raised me, and he loved me. I loved him more then the world. Its sad that he had to leave but it was just his time to become one of God’s precious angels. He taught me so much in the 12 years we had together, He gave me a piece of a railroad track and said, “remember this when I am gone.” and I gladly will. In his final days I talked to him more then I ever had before. I miss hearing his voice say, “I love you.” I know he loves me and I love him. He has so many friends that supported him through this journey as well as our family. Its sad that he had to leave but it was so peaceful the way he left. He had his time to shine on earth but then came his time to shine in heaven. He will be missed by friends, family, and me. You will miss parts of my life grandpa, but I know you will be here, always. I love you grandpa. You are my everything. We share so many memories that will be cherished. I love you grandpa, You will always have a special place in my heart. You will be missed. I love you and miss you. You are my number one grandpa.
