April 13, 1985 - November 27, 2020
Born in Edmonds, Washington
Resided in Anchorage, Alaska


On Friday, November 27, 2020, David Joseph Greig, husband, father, son, and brother, took his own life after a long struggle with substance abuse, at the age of 35.

David was born April 13, 1985 in Edmonds, WA to Gary Greig and Tammy Haynes. He spent his adolescent years living with parents in both Washington and Alaska but made Anchorage, Alaska his home in 2001. David worked various jobs throughout the years but ultimately loved to work in trucking.

On July 21, 2012, he married Maricar Yuzon in an intimate and lighthearted ceremony at Elderberry Park in Anchorage, surrounded by their loved ones. They raised four children together.

David was a goofball. No dinner table was safe from his jokester ways. He had a heart of gold with an infectious smile. He had a passion for snow-machines, low riders, and hip hop. Those who knew him, knew what a sensitive soul he truly was. His battle with addiction ultimately dimmed his light and sadly he succumbed to those demons. We will remember him through his children’s eyes, their smiles, and their laughter, for they embody everything we loved most about him.

He is survived by his loving wife, Maricar and their four children, Jenalyn, Kyle, Jaxson, and Kendall. His parents Gary and Tammy, along with his in-laws, Almario and Rossana Yuzon. His sister Shannon and her husband Rob Pritchett, sister Olivia Haynes, and sister in-law Marianne Yuzon. He will be fondly remembered by several aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, and close friends. David was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Lawrence and Barbara Greig, maternal grandparents John Griffith and Patricia Siemering, Stepfather Larry Haynes, and his baby sister Ashley Haynes.

A celebration of life will take place in Spring 2021.
