Gregory Clark Baniak, age 62, of Wana, passed away Wednesday, October 5, 2022 at his home. Gregory was born June 9, 1960 a son of the late Edmund “Cats” Baniak and Jeanette Titchenell.
Greg was a 1979 graduate of MHS and was a United Sates Navy Veteran. He was also employed at Mylan, Fishers and NAPA.
Greg enjoyed riding his Harley, working on his farm, hunting, spending time with his granddaughters and with his dog Duke and cat Miss Kitty.
Greg was an honest dependable hard worker, who possessed a wicked sense of humor. Greg could laugh and make you laugh while being serious all at the same time. You could always find Greg on the farm fixing up or building new things. When Greg became ill, his beloved dog Duke became his chair buddy as Miss Kitty became his lap cat. Rhonda and his grandchildren were his pride and joy and what kept him going. Greg was witty and inventive. He loved tinkering and possessed the creative mind to fix many problems.
