Greg Bronson passed away peacefully on January 7th after a long struggle with cancer. Although he grew up in Flagstaff, Arizona, Greg was born in Tuba City, Arizona on September 2nd 1954 where his dad was temporarily working on the new hospital. He attended Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary grade school, Flagstaff Junior High School and Flagstaff High School, graduating in 1973. Greg worked as manager of his dad's lighting store and there began to develop his artistic talents in stained glass work, wood work and any area that sparked his creative imagination. He could envision a project and execute it beautifully whether creating a glass piece, wood carving, costume, picture frame, or painting a room to look as if you were under the sea. He had a passion and patience for quality and perfection in anything he created. Greg moved to California in 1985 and while living there he began working as an extra for the movie studios in Hollywood. This was the start of a long love of acting which he was involved in up to a few months before his death. As his film resume grew, he earned enough credits to obtain his Screen Actors Guild (SAG) membership. After moving to Arizona in 2004, he began working with the independent film industry in Arizona and with the staff and students of Scottsdale Community College theater department. He was involved in hundreds of projects and earned awards for his work and dedication to the Arizona film industry. During his acting career, he amassed and created an extensive wardrobe collection which provided clothing for virtually any part he played. A history of his acting career can be seen on imdb.com. Greg was always willing and able to help with a variety of construction, remodeling, renovation and repair jobs for family and friends. He was well loved by all and a favorite among his siblings and many nieces and nephews with whom he took the time to play with, support and mentor. Greg was the 5th of twelve children and is survived by all of his siblings except an older brother, Steve. His ashes will be interred in Ranchos Palos Verdes, CA with his long-time partner and fiancé, Susan McMillen.
