A memorial gathering will be held from 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, August 23 at Brooks Funeral Care – University Chapel in Clive. A private inurnment will be held at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Cummings, IA.

After graduating from Valley High School in West Des Moines, he attended University of Northern Iowa where he received a teaching degree.

Greg was a long time teacher and substitute teacher in Fort Dodge and the Des Moines areas, working with students in grades K-8 and in later years, high school. His desire to teach young people combined with his love of basketball lead to a successful 30 plus year AAU girl’s high school basketball coaching history. During that time he travelled nationally with his team, the “Lady Gators”, winning national championships.

Greg always loved animals of all kinds especially reptiles and dogs. He enjoyed many years with his favorite dog and companion, a cocker spaniel named Bond.

Greg is survived by his brother, Brian Lange and wife, Marilyn; his two nephews, Denny and Maxxwell Lange; and many loving cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Drexel and Kathryn (Eggleston) Lange.
