Greg Moulliet, a computer engineer and resident of Portland, OR, died unexpectedly on January 28, 2018 while working on his farm in Home Valley, WA.
Greg is survived by his wife, Carol Collier; his father and stepmother, Bill and Diane Moulliet; and his sister, Susan Thiem; Carol’s family, and nephew William Eades and nieces Jesica Eades Beck and Shannon Collier. He is predeceased by his brother, Mark Moulliet; and his mother, Peggy (Wheeler) Moulliet.
Greg was born in Cincinnati, OH on October 14, 1971 and raised in the Hyde Park and St Bernard neighborhoods. He graduated from Xavier University in Cincinnati with a degree in Physics and Math. He began graduate school in Chicago, but found he preferred working as a computer programmer. He enjoyed traveling and relocated to California and then Portland in 2003.
In 2004 Greg moved to the Buckman neighborhood and met Carol Collier. After suffering pregnancy losses, they decided to become dog parents and adopted a stray puppy, whom Greg named Hefeweizen (Hefe). Greg and Carol married on October 1, 2010.
Greg was a problem-solver who often took on difficult and complex projects at work, in the neighborhood, and around the house. He was an extraordinary home brewer, with the stature and beard to suit. He made friends through his love of board games, books, soccer, biking, walking, and yoga. Greg and Carol restored their Portland house, continued to travel, and began the restoration of the old Berge farmstead in the Columbia Gorge in May 2015. They began fostering poodles in 2017, but it quickly became clear Foucault was staying. Greg will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.
As Greg would prefer, donations in his memory may be made to the Buckman Elementary playground redesign, to create a more natural and creative play area at our local school. https://buckmanelementary.schoolauction.net/playground/give
