Gregory Scott Covert
ODESSA Gregory Scott Covert, beloved Husband, Father, Son, and Brother passed away on Saturday, June 21, 2008, of heart failure.
Greg was a wonderful husband and father, being blessed with a child after the age of 40. He loved his family and showed unconditional love to all. He was preceded in death by his beloved mother, Wanda Covert, who passed away in 1998.
Greg is survived by his wife, Marie Covert of Odessa; son, Paul M. Covert of Odessa; stepdaughter, Heather Davis of Odessa; his father, Harold Covert and wife, Ethel of Odessa; two brothers, Jeffrey Covert and wife, Jeanette of Odessa and Michael Covert and wife, Grace Shan of Plano, Texas; one grandchild, Isen Maggard of Odessa; and many beloved nieces; nephews; and extended family members. He will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
Greg was an avid sports fan who loved the Stars, the Spurs, the Jackalopes, and especially the Washington Redskins, much to the chagrin of his family! Greg graduated from Permian High School in 1979 and received an associate's degree from Odessa College. Greg was a co-owner of After Hours Rental Mart, the local John Deere dealer, with his brother Jeff for 21 years and enjoyed the many people that he helped every day, usually with a smile and a story.
Honorary pallbearers will be: Jerry Mitchell, Tim McDonald, Robert Prince, Gene True, Glen Perkins, Ralph Garcia, Tommy Whitney, Brent Womack and Wes Huse.
Greg's memory will be honored in a memorial service at 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 25, 2008, at Chapel Hill Baptist Church officiated by Rev. Jeff Box. He will be interred privately at Sunset Memorial Gardens. Arrangements are entrusted to Acres West Funeral Chapel.
In lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated to an education trust established at Southwest Heritage Credit Union in the name of Paul Covert.
