Greg was born to Alvin V. Keway and Leona M. (George) Honson. He was raised and went to school in Harbor Springs and studied bookkeeping and Ojibway at Bay Mills Community College. Greg was a citizen of Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians and served as a Health Commissioner for LTBB Health Services in its early days. For 38 years, Greg worked at Sault Tribal Health and Human Services.
Greg lived his life to the fullest. He loved metal detecting, finding many “treasures” and coins. He had a tremendous enthusiasm hunting for and polishing Petoskey stones. He enjoyed bowling throughout his life but his biggest passion was playing golf whenever and wherever he could. He enjoyed league golf with his many comrades and played in many tournaments. For Greg, it wasn’t about winning; it was about just having fun and a good meal.
Time spent with close friends was all about hopping in the car and finding a good yard sale, auction, or antique shop and a good place to eat. However, spending time with his family was the heart and soul of his life, giving them memories they will cherish forever. He was so proud of them all.
Survivors include his children Gregg Keway of Spokane, WA; Ashlee Keway of Kincheloe, MI; Megan Dakota of Sault Ste. Marie, MI; Brian Keway of Holden, MO; and Sarah Keway of Savannah, GA. Also surviving are 17 grandchildren and his sisters Dollie Keway and Lisa Flynn both of Petoskey. Greg was preceded in death by his parents and one granddaughter.
