BOSSIER CITY – A memorial service for Ray K. Greba, 89, will be 10 a.m. Thursday, February 13, 2014 at the chapel of the Northwest Louisiana Veterans Home, 3130 Arthur Ray Teague Parkway, Bossier City, LA, with USAF Honors. Officiating will be Rev. Ronnie Tarver and Chaplain Keith Adcock.
Ray was born January 25, 1925 in Detroit, MI and died February 7, 2014 in Bossier City, LA. He served in the Army Air Corps and the U.S. Air Force as a gunner. He was a veteran of WWII and was a gunner on several combat missions. In 1993 Ray had a liver transplant, as a result from hemo chromotosis. The donor liver gave him a bone marrow transplant and changed his blood type. As a result, he never had to take any anti-rejection medicine.
He is survived by his wife, Wanda Walters Greba of Bossier City, LA; sons, Brad Greba and wife Amy of Devils Tower, WY, Brian Greba of Deadwood, SD; grandchildren, Erica Greba of Englewood, CO, Robin Weis and husband Barry of Rapid City, SD; sister, Rosemary Kowalewski and husband Ray of Taylor, MI; brother, Bill Greba and wife Judith of Clinton Township, MI; several nieces, nephews and special cousins and friends, Reba and Charlie Flynn.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to the Wounded Warriors Project or Samaritan’s Purse.
