Greg Drewianka

Greg was born on January 19th, 1946, the son of Conny and Faith Drewianka. He grew up in Red Wing, MN and graduated in 1964 from Red Wing High School. He married Faye Strusz on January 2nd, 1965, and they lived in New Brighton, MN.

He started his career working in the tool crib at World Aerospace Corporation and quickly worked his way into becoming a numeric control computer programmer. He continued programming with Infinite Graphics before he started his true passion of working with CAD/CAM software with CAMAX systems in Bloomington, MN. There he started working with NASCAR teams to help them in development of faster engines through his knowledge of working with 5 axis milling machines. He also worked with major golf club manufacturers in development of the clubs. He also traveled overseas to train international distributors with the CAMAX software. He then took this knowledge and started his own business supporting the many customers he had over the years. Greg and Faye made the decision to move back to the family farm in 1999 and continued farming.

He became a very involved member of Vasa Lutheran church and served as council president for several years. He enjoyed 4 wheeling, playing games and visiting with his family and friends, hunting and anything outdoors. Greg died on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, doing what he loved, working outdoors at home.

He is survived by the love of his life Faye of Vasa, and two children, Leslie of Roseville, MN and Tom (Sheila) of Freistatt, MO. He is also survived by three grandchildren, Charlie Freppert, Sara and Faith; sisters, Gwen and Sandy along with brother, Gary; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Faye’s parents, sister-in-law, Joanne, and brothers-in-law, Lyle and Zane.

A light lunch will follow. This service will be livestreamed and available to view at under his obituary.
