It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Gregory Tester, a revered family man and community member. Gregory was born to the late Wilbert Tester and Carolyn Tester on January 31, 1963, and passed away peacefully on July 6, 2023. Known for his kindness and unwavering dedication to his loved ones, Gregory will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Gregory leaves behind a beautiful, close-knit family. His loving wife, Shilo Tester, has been his rock in life’s ups and downs. His unconditional love and affection extended to his children, sons Brandon and Ryan Tester, his stepsons, Cody Chapman and Shane Ludlow, and his stepdaughter, Shay Burton.
Gregory was blessed to know the joy of being a grandparent. His granddaughters, Raine Tester and Aryanne Burton, and his grandson, Braydon Burton were the apple of his eye, and they will dearly miss their loving grandfather. His mother, Carolyn Tester, also survives him, and will hold onto the memory of her son with fondness and love.
Greg always used to say “Things always have a way of working themselves out”. This is what we are going to have to hold onto. Greg left a tremendous and beautifully positive imprint on everyone that met him. A friend to all and loved by everyone. His impact on peoples lives will always be felt and cherished. Remember his words and his lectures–ALWAYS– as they will get you through the tough times that life will bring–and that is exactly what Greg would want you to do.
