Obituary for Gregory M. Kohnke

Gregory M. Kohnke was born August 11, 1966 in Milwaukee, WI and graduated from Pius XI High School in 1983. During his senior year, at age 17, he was recruited to First Cadet and began serving our country under the direction of the U.S. National Guard (Reserves Unit). While serving, he found his first passion working as a Medical Trauma Cadet at the Presidio Medical Unit in San Francisco, CA. He later settled in Utah and attended the University of Utah.

Over the years, and always with his camera and lens in hand, he spent a lot of time traveling and or residing in different lands such as Alaska, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Canada, and China (just to name a few).

He eventually returned to his hometown in Wisconsin and continued his education to earn his Bachelors of Science in Business Administration at Cardinal Stritch University. In 2001, he graduated Cum Laude and was the 5th highest in his class. He chose to continue to do what he loved and since Greg had an eye for capturing nature, people, and landscapes, he chose photography. As he continued his travels, often solo, he captured in pictures what we know as God’s Land. To this day we appreciate his gift to express art through photography.

Greg loved family. Greg loved friends. He has his own special way of connecting with the world. He was a fearless adventurer and we never grew tired of hearing stories of his travels, locations he’s visited, and experiences he was blessed to endure. We will forever miss you Greg . . . . We will miss your laugh, your sense of humor, and your appreciation of God's beautiful creation which you captured so well in your photos due to your keen ‘eye’ (not to mention your LOVE!)

Most importantly though, you came to a saving faith in Christ in 2017, and as we rejoice that you’ve joined Him for eternity; we shall wait; we will meet again.

Thank you Greg for your passion and ability to capture this great earth! You’ve given back a gift and that includes allowing us to breathe and feel your journey.
