Greg graduated from Marian Central High School and went on to receive a BA in Business and Finance from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. He would later receive an MA and certification in school psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
Greg lived and worked in Chicago after his graduation from Whitewater. He started in Finance at Northern Trust and after a few years went into the tech industry at CDW. After a sudden stroke suffered by his sister, he decided to help people by entering the health profession and educating himself as a school psychologist.
His talent in music and his interest in the outdoors drew him to move to Colorado. Along with his hobbies of hockey, golf and tennis; he now became an avid cyclist and hiker, and novice fly fisherman. He worked at the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind in Colorado Springs and later moved to Boulder to work at schools in Loveland, CO. Unfortunately, physical injuries, surgery, and health issues forced him to return home to recover. Greg then worked part-time with children with autism. He also helped with his sister, Kristen’s continued recovery from her stroke and aphasia and was able to help other stroke survivors with aphasia.
Greg will be deeply missed by loving family and friends. He is survived by his parents, Rick and Jan Carlstedt of Lakewood; sister, Kristin (Bryan) Bode of Crystal Lake; grandmother, LaVerne Wronski of Schaumburg; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
