Greggory Lynn Runyon considered hunting to be an important part of his life. Runyon died this spring. He was 65 and lived in Elk River.
During his years at Littlefork – Big Falls High School, Runyon sustained an injury and became paraplegic. He graduated from St. Cloud State and worked for Unisys for more than 40 years.
He enjoyed the outdoors and helped found the Capable Partners Hunting Group to share that activity with others who are disabled. Capable Partners is a non-profit organization that provides hunting, fishing and other outdoor trips and activities by bringing together able bodied and disabled people who enjoy outdoor sports.
Runyon is survived by his wife Janie, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, his mother, brothers and their families. Services are to be held in August.
