Gilbert Gregory Chesnut, known to friends as "Greg," passed away Friday, May 10, 2019 at the age of 69 at his home, concluding his battle with cancer.

Greg was born in Decatur, Georgia in 1949 to Gib and Sammie Chesnut. He graduated from Tucker High School in 1967 then attended East Tennessee State University where he lettered in Football and was named to the All Ohio Valley Conference Team in 1970. Upon graduation, Greg served in the United States Army as a 1st Lt. from 1971-1973. While he spent over 30 years in Sales before retiring, his most rewarding years were the ones he enjoyed in the Pickens County School System, particularly the ones spent at Jasper Middle School running the "JMS Hilton." Greg loved to spend his spare time fishing with his best friend and wife of 36 years, Jill Chesnut. He was preceded in death by his parents, Gib and Sammie Chesnut.

Greg will be sadly missed by his wife, Jill Chesnut; daughter, Tiffany Chesnut Hamilton (Joel); granddaughters, Hailey and Makenzie Moore; son, Grant Chesnut (Heather); granddaughters, Brin, Allie Grace and Eva Claire Chesnut; sister, Sandy Wages (Dan); niece, Brandi Waller and nephew, Michael Hopkins.

Those who desire may make memorial donations in memory of Greg to the Pickens County Animal Shelter at 3563 Camp Road; Jasper, GA 30143.

Arrangements are entrusted to the Staff of Roper Funeral Home and Crematory.
