Gregory “Greg” Allen Huey, 55, passed away surrounded by loved ones on Sunday, May 26, 2024, at his home in Fishers, Indiana. He was born on March 29, 1969, in Anderson, Indiana.

Greg grew up in Pendleton, Indiana. He graduated from Pendleton Heights High School with the Class of 1987 and was in the top ten percent of his class. He then went to Purdue University and graduated in 1991 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. Greg was a member of the Purdue Cycling Club.

Greg spent several summers as a teen working at Falls Park and Brown Pool. After college, Greg moved to St. Joseph, Michigan, and worked for Zenith Data Systems and IntelliMedia. Greg later moved back to Indiana and started his career with Cummins Inc. located in Columbus. He was employed by Cummins for over 25 years and had various roles within the company, including systems engineer and, most recently, manager of mid-range automotive current product controls. During his tenure at Cummins, he was an inventor on a team that was granted a patent for a system that would automatically select an oil pressure sensor based on sensor type.

Greg was a photographer for the Associated Press at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS). He has taken photos for over 25 years at IMS and worked his way up to the coveted photography position in Turn 2. Notably, he had Ed Carpenter, Danica Patrick and Jimmie Johnson crash photos published worldwide in publications such as Sports Illustrated, ESPN, USA Today and many more. He was a member of the “Indianapolis 500 Oldtimers.” He became a member of the organization after having been actively engaged in the Indianapolis 500 for over 20 years.

Greg was an avid memorabilia collector of all things racing. This included crew uniforms, replica cars, posters, autographs, visors and just about anything that he could find that was unique. He also had a hobby of customizing die-cast cars to match the actual sponsorship logos.

Greg was a life-long learner, and his love of reading began at an early age. He was interested in knowing information, stats and facts and could always spot any grammatical or spelling errors in print or media.

Throughout his adult life, he played co-ed volleyball and took part in cycling. Greg loved watching sporting events of his alma mater, Purdue University and attended numerous basketball, volleyball and football games. He also had fun watching and attending Pacers and Colts games.

Spending time with family and friends was important to Greg. He loved a good joke or pun, had a great laugh and especially had fun being the “cool uncle” to his niece and nephew over the past 20 years. Greg and his girlfriend, Ali, enjoyed many adventures, including taking train rides, exploring the zoo, attending sporting events, visiting racetracks and bird watching.

Greg is survived by his parents, Mary Lou Huey and Bill (Nancy) Huey; his sister, Cindy (Rudy) Lee; and his niece and nephew, Ethan Lee and Taryn Lee. Also surviving is his beloved girlfriend, Alicia Pryor.
