Gregory Allen was born on March 3, 1961, at Devils Lake, the son of Betty (Rice) and Michael Reiger Sr. He was reared and educated in Devils Lake, living his entire life here. He attended Devils Lake Central. At a young age, Gregory started working for Ed Lauinger, erecting grain bins and other construction projects, working there for many years. He then worked construction with Larry Elshaug until health conditions forced him to retire. Gregory’s passion was music. He played guitar and drums and always looked forward to JAM sessions with friends and family. He never missed a chance to get together with his cousin Robert Jetty strumming guitars, beating the drums and just having a great time. Gregory was the family ‘comedian’ and loved to make people laugh. Always had a joke to share, a story to tell. Of course, his brothers, sister, nieces and nephews meant the world to him. Whenever he could find the time, he really enjoyed a day of fishing. Gregory was very special to us and we will miss him so very much. Gregory is survived by his loving family; his sister, Debbie Skavhaug, Devils Lake; brothers, Gary (Michelle) Reiger, Devils Lake and Martin Reiger, Iola, TX; seven nephews and nieces, Travis (Jennifer) Skavhaug, Lindsey Skavhaug, Derick Germain, Cassie Reiger, Merlyn Knutson, Shelby Reiger, Keshaun Feather; great-nieces and great-nephews, Emily, Bentley, Averie, Silas, Kingston, Tuff, Hensley, Landon, David, Patricia, Leelyn, Leelah, Merlyn, IV and Kezawin; several aunts, uncles and many cousins. He was preceded in death by; his parents; brother, Michael Reiger; and a sister in infancy; grandparents, Mabel Rice, Joseph and Cecilia Reiger; half-brother, Steve Reiger. Honorary Bearers will be Robert Jetty, Curt Azure, Brian Leben, Steve Crist, Larry Elshaug and Diane Hooey. If we forgot to name anyone it was not intentional. Gregory loved you all.
