Greg Eskew

February 18, 1956 — September 4, 2017


Marlon Gregory Eskew was born on February 18, 1956, in Imperial, Nebraska, to Leonard “Tex” and Arlene (Robb) Eskew. He was a lifelong resident of Chase County growing up and graduating from Chase County High School.
Greg worked as the Chase County Road Superintendent, independent truck driver, and his greatest joy was being an auctioneer. You could always find him at an auction either selling or buying.
Greg was a member of both the Nebraska and South Dakota Auctioneer‘s Associations.
Greg loved his draft horses and ponies. He took great pride in training his teams to be used for work or pleasure. Greg would rather use a team of drafts to get a job completed than use conventional machinery.
As we all know, Greg was always up for a conversation and had very few strangers in his life. You were always greeted with a smile and knew you had to be there for a while.

Greg passed away on his own terms, Monday evening, September 4, 2017, at the Great Plains Regional Medical Center, North Platte, NE. He was 61 years of age.

Greg was very proud of his business, his children and grandchildren. He is survived by:
