Greg Michel

Crematory Operator & Hearse Attendant

Greg’s prior work experiences included 27 years at Spartan Promotional Group as a Financial Controller and 28+ years with the Lower St Croix Valley Fire Department as a paid on call Firefighter & Chief Officer. It was at Spartan that Greg met Tom and Janet O’Connell and struck up many conversations over the years about the funeral business. His recent retirement afforded him more time to explore working with O’Connell’s as a hearse driver beginning in 2022. He considers himself fortunate to be part of such a wonderful and caring team at O’Connells.

Greg is blessed with his wife Cheryl and two adult children and their significant others. In his free time, Greg enjoys golfing, camping and spending quality time with his family and friends, as well as cheering on his Minnesota sports teams.
