Greg and Karrie Provost

Gregory Brian Provost, 1966-2008

Gregory Brian Provost died Tuesday, November 4, 2008, from a car accident in Summit County. He was born July 3, 1966, in San Francisco, California to Nancy Ford Provost Warner and John Edward Provost, Jr. In his early years, he grew up in San Jose, Calif. then moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1976. Greg moved back to San Jose to be with his father where he met and married the "love of his life" Karrie Minasian. They were married at Lake Tahoe in July of 1993. They had two beautiful children who, by the grace of God, survived the accident with no injury to their body, but their hearts will take forever to heal.

Greg was a talented photographer. He captured the beauty of nature with every photograph he took including the beauty of his priceless children. Greg was also a talented mechanic. He took everything apart that he got his hands on; sometimes he forgot to put it back together. But, eventually he made it work again only better. He had an entrepreneur in spirit. He started his own carpet cleaning business which became very successful in the Wasatch and Summit county area.

Greg was a loving, kind, gentle soul. He was a big teddy bear. He would cry watching a sunset; his children laughing and playing, or a Hallmark commercial. He had a great sense of humor and was always trying to make people laugh. He was a devoted and loyal friend. He was always moving and talking, and talking, and talking. He was very intelligent and took a great interest in history. He loved so very deeply. Especially Karrie and his children.
