His battle with a very aggressive form of cancer demonstrated his courage and fearlessness as he maintained his positive spirit and stayed strong and mentally sharp until the very end.

Greg was a loving and caring father, husband, son, brother, and friend to so many people. He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Kathryn Shields, daughters Kelli Shields (Dave Roth), Kamber Rose (Woody Rose), and son Gavin Shields; three grandchildren, Charlie and Lottie Rose, and Arlo Roth, and brother Randall Shields.  He is predeceased by his parents Bernard and Wanda Shields.

Born in Guymon, OK, on January 7, 1953, Greg attended Guymon Public Schools, Panhandle State University and graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a degree in Criminal Justice.

In 1975, Greg joined the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, where he had a distinguished career before retiring (for the first time) after 20 years, followed by several years at the Oklahoma Office of Attorney General and the Oklahoma Insurance Department before returning to the OSBI to complete his combined 42 years of service to the State of Oklahoma. Additionally, he conducted investigations for the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Greg attended St. John the Baptist Catholic Church with his family and was a member of Victory Memorial United Methodist Church in Guymon.

He loved being on the water, and especially loved spending time at his lake house. His family and friends will miss his dry humor, quiet demeanor, and steadfast character.
