Marlon Gregory Eskew was born on Feb. 18, 1956, in Imperial, Neb., to Leonard “Tex” and Arlene (Robb) Eskew. He was a lifelong resident of Chase County growing up and graduating from Chase County High School.
Greg worked as the Chase County Road Superintendent and as an independent truck driver. His greatest joy was being an auctioneer. You could always find him at an auction either selling or buying.
Greg was a member of both the Nebraska and South Dakota Auctioneers’ Associations.
Greg loved his draft horses and ponies. He took great pride in training his teams to be used for work or pleasure. Greg would rather use a team of drafts to get a job completed than use conventional machinery.
As we all know, Greg was always up for a conversation and had very few strangers in his life. You were always greeted with a smile and knew you had to be there for a while.
Greg passed away on his own terms Monday evening, Sept. 4, 2017, at the Great Plains Regional Medical Center in North Platte. He was 61 years of age.
Greg was very proud of his business, his children and his grandchildren.
He is survived by his mother Arlene of Imperial; daughter Debra (Brad) Hand of Giltner; son Aaron (Ashley) of Imperial; four grandchildren: Sebastian, Adelle, Cy and Aiden; brothers Bill (Kristy) of Champion, Bob (Susan) of Imperial and Doug of Imperial; sister Robin Eskew of North Platte; and special friend Beth O’Dea of McCook.
Greg was preceded in death by his father Tex, niece Heather Smith and nephew Chris Tidball.
