Gregory James Maylum was born April 19, 1960, in Cornwall, New York, the son of Leslie R. and Alice (Riggs) Maylum. He served in the U.S. Army before marrying Susan Young on April 4, 1991, in Davenport, Iowa. He owned and operated Maylum Tool & Grind in Eldridge, Iowa, for many years.
He enjoyed fishing, listening to music, and was an avid New York Giants fan. Above all else, family was the most important thing to Greg. He especially loved coaching his daughters’ softball teams and spending time with his granddaughters.

He was preceded in death by his father, Leslie Maylum; his grandparents; and a brother, Eric Maylum.
The family would like to give special thanks to everyone at Heartland Hospice for the wonderful care they gave to Greg.
