It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Gregory Todd Knippel on April 8, 2024, in Palm Coast, Florida, after a brief battle with cancer. Greg’s journey with this illness began unexpectedly on March 25th, 2024, when he sought medical attention for fatigue, mild shoulder, and abdominal pain. Despite swift efforts to seek treatment, Greg’s health took a drastic turn, leading to an emergency hospitalization on April 5th. Tragically, just one day into his hospital stay, Greg experienced a stroke and multi-organ failure, leaving his loved ones with the devastating news that palliative care was his only option. Surrounded by family, Greg peacefully passed away on April 8th.

In the wake of this profound loss, Greg’s family is grappling not only with grief, but also with the financial burden that accompanies unexpected medical expenses and the closure of his trucking business. While Greg had medical insurance, the overwhelming costs that remain uncovered are daunting. Furthermore, his elderly mother, Nadia, now shoulders the responsibility of managing his affairs, including the financial implications of his business and estate.
