Cindi, Sophie, Diane and the entire Huett family.
My heartfelt condolences on the passing of Greg. What a fantastic co-worker he was when I worked with him at MJN/BMS, although, I interfaced with Greg wgen he worked at FedEx. He was a hard worker and always dedicated to whatever the cause at hand was. You always knew that Greg would get the job done and done right. He was a straight forward, no nonsense guy and admired that about him.
Thoughts and prayers go out as you and your family navigates this great loss.
Ron West says
Even though we have never met, I offer you my sincere condolences. Greg was a great person whom I first met about 1967 and worked with at BE for a few years. Several times in years past, I have thought of Greg and wondered how and what he was doing. I will keep you, the grandchildren and son-in-law in my prayers.
Debra Murray says
Hurting with you.
Ralph Titus says
Greg was a talented and personable person who I am very glad to have known. Before working at Mead Johnson, we attended high school together. Between that and especially work, we always had some interesting and fun stories to share. He had a great sense of humor that many of us enjoyed.
In his position, he was required to hold monthly safety meetings. Often the topics, while important, weren’t often exciting listening material. But Greg had a gift, a talent for speaking, and could often make a room full of people laugh, even early in the morning.
To his family, I am very sorry for your loss.
Please know that through his dedication over the years, Mead Johnson became a safer place to work for hundreds of people. That is a terrific legacy.

Was shocked and sad to hear of Greg passing. He did have a talent for speaking. I recently had him give me my safety training at Mead Johnson 2 years ago this month and it was refreshing to see him once again.
Very sorry for your loss.

I extend my deepest condolences to Cindi and the entire Huett Family. During his time at Mead Johnson Nutrition, Greg embodied the tradition of excellence at the historic Evansville company. While there’s no doubt that Greg left an outstanding legacy that his co-workers will long remember, I will never forget his kindness, warmth and wonderful sense of humor. Rest in peace, my friend.–John Engelbrecht
