Gregory Scott Buffington

February 10th, 1972 - March 22nd, 2024

Gregory “Gregg” Scott Buffington of Greeley, Colorado passed away March 22, 2024, at his home. 

 

He was born February 10, 1972, in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania to James William Buffington and Janet Lee Buffington (Bellows). 

 

Growing up Gregg was raised by his parents in Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, before finally moving to his final destination in Colorado. In 1983, he welcomed a little sister Shelley Ann Jones (Buffington) the day after his 11th birthday. After his move to Colorado, he attended school in Johnstown at Roosevelt High School. After leaving school, while cruising in Greeley he met and married the love of his life Micki Sue Buffington on May 10th, 1997. Together they welcomed two beautiful children Jeremiah Scott Buffington (21) and Jacqueline Lee Buffington (17). After many different careers working with his hands, he found his niche as a Maintenance Mechanic at Bay State Milling where he worked for the last 20 years. 

 

Those who knew Gregg knew that he was a one-of-a-kind guy. As soon as he knew you, you were considered family, and he would drop anything to help. Gregg lived a full life, filled with love and adventure. He was a talented artist, photographer, archer, and knife maker.  He enjoyed time with many of his closest friends fishing, metal detecting, and gold panning. He enjoyed spending numerous hours working in the garage with his dad building an old Toyota Landcruiser and several different vehicles. He was a mama’s boy to the fullest, his little sister protector and hero, his niece, and nephews great role model but his biggest pride and joy were his wife, and children. 

 

In death, he left behind his beautiful wife Micki, two children Jeremiah and Jacqueline, both his mother and father, father-in-law Dave (Kim) Lebsack, little sister Shelley (Russ) Jones, nieces and nephews Madison (Maddy), Taner (Taner Man), Russell, Abbigail (Abby), and Megan (Piglet), and great niece A’Larah Jones. He is also leaving behind several aunts, uncles, cousins, and several close friends that he considered family. 

 

He is preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents, his beloved mother-in-law Jacqueline Mae Lebsack (Newman), and Cousin Tommy White 

 

 

A Celebration of Life is planned for April 6th, 2024 at Milliken Community Center 1101 Broad Street Milliken, Colorado from 10am to 2pm.

Gregg was my Cousin but I always considered him my "Little Brother". We grew up together and spent a lot of time together on my parents farm. After that Gregg moved with his parents out West. I spent the Summer of 1983 out in Colorado staying with Jim & Janet & Gregg. I graduated in 1984 and decided I wanted to live out in Colorado. I eventually moved back to Pennsylvania (1985) & only got to see him again only when his parents visited PA. Just recently, last year, Gregg was home with his family & he introduced us to them. Very nice folks.... Rest In Peace Gregg! Love & miss you dearly.

My favorite and first memory of Gregg was when we all lived in Oklahoma. I wasn’t more than maybe 4 or 5 years old and it had rained really hard soaking the ground straight through. We were all up the hill from his house playing in the mud where they were building a church I think. Well we were all barefoot and slopping around in the mud and the muck when all of a sudden I was BIT by something. Well of course I started crying and Gregg came to my rescue. He made me show him my foot which I did and blood was gushing out. He swooped me up in his arms and carried me all the way down to his house to Aunt Janet. At first they thought Gregg was the one hurt but he was the HERO!!! I was convinced I had been bitten by SHARK!! Which gave everyone a good laugh! Gregg was a hero to so many in his life. He was a one of kind guy and he will be missed by so many. RIP cousin!💔
