Please accept my sincerest condolences with the passing of Greg. I've known him for 50 years serving the best breakfasts and Steak on a Kaiser in Oshawa. He will truly be missed by all his patrons. The Forum is an Oshawa gem.

Myself and members of my family have been going to The Forum for around 50 years. I always enjoyed Greg joining me at my table to talk horses. We would look at the entries in the Toronto Sun and he would always ask me if I liked anything. He also liked to talk about some of the shenanigans of my late Uncle Bob and we would always have a good laugh. His fries N gravy and hot hamburger will always be #1 in my book.

Condolences to “Mama” and the rest of Greg’s family. Rest in peace, my friend.
