Greg McCarty passed away on Friday, August 27, 2021, in Lubbock, Texas.
Greg was born on December 12, 1965, in Fort Hood, Texas to Jack and Cindy McCarty. He graduated from Muleshoe High School in 1984 and received his Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from the University of Phoenix in 2005. He was employed by Texas Instruments from 1995-1999 as a wafer fab operator. In 2000 he began working for X-Fab Texas, also working in the wafer fabrication area. In 2005 he transferred into the Information Technology department where he worked as a Systems-Network Engineer until 2021.
Greg lived a life full of adventure. From exploring caves, to travel, to touring the Hill Country and mountains on his motorcycle, he lived his life to the fullest. Greg loved history and was full of “useless trivia”. His hobbies included collecting historical items and working with leather. He was a true beer connoisseur, willing to taste test any brand or flavor he came across.
Greg enjoyed spending time with his family. Whether it was going to the ranch, traveling to fun places like Costa Rica with his parents, or attending one of his nieces or nephews sporting events, you could always count on Greg to be there. He took great care of those he loved.
Greg will be remembered by many for his sense of humor and his ability to “push people’s buttons”. Sarcasm was his specialty, and you could not be around him without having a good laugh.
Greg’s father, Dr. Jack McCarty passed away 4 days after his death. He is survived by his mother Cindy McCarty; his brother Jeff McCarty; and his sister Susan Alger and her husband Brian; nieces Kirstie Morgan and Destiny Alger; and nephews Stephen Cross, Jacob Alger and Jace Alger.
The family will celebrate Greg’s life of 55 years at 3:00pm on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers. The service will be live-streamed here on this page, where you are encouraged to sign the virtual guestbook and share memories and expressions of sympathy. We also encourage you to view his Life Tribute, a video of photographs set to his favorite music.
