That last photo from the family of him wearing that blue shirt. That's how I remember him. He had that smile and disposition. Always good natured as I remember. We weren't close friends, but you knew he'd be a friend. That photo is how I remember him when I left in 1986. A great guy to meet and know!

I first met Greg way back in Junior High School.Even then he was a likeable and. entertaining
Character. A lively guy who loved
Music and dancing. Greg could
Charm the girls and “wow”them
On the dance floor Man! That guy could dance! In later years
He used to make regular guest
Appearances on “Frank’s Band
Stand “ - a popular televised
Weekly music and dance show
At the time in Halifax.
It was a couple of decades later
When I encountered Greg again
He was working at “Gingers
Tavern “ as Chief Cook. Greg was
A hospitable person, a people person “who liked to entertain,
Who liked good company, good
Food and music, good times and
Conversation. In doing so , the
Hospitality trade suited him and
He carried that forward and
Developed it further.
Although It has been over thirty
Years since we last saw each other , l will always remember him- a good guy, a friend to many
His sense of humour. Greg used to joke that since he was two weeks older than me, he was older and wiser.!
He will be missed

🎶Dancing cheek to cheek🎶 As a young teen I met Tag and couldn't believe his great taste in music, especially for an old fart!! He loved and is loved, he was genuine and spoke his mind.
For those aching as they feel his presence not so close, savor the fact you hurt because you love...that's always a beautiful thing!
Tag, may your smile continue to reach your eyes and your glass of beer always be topped with the perfect amount of foam!

I met Greg at High School 1965-67. We danced at the YMCA, and were dance partners on Frank's Bandstand at CBC. He loved music and could dance like crazy~! Love and light to his family.

I am sorry to learn of Gregs passing I knew him from Halifax years ago when we were part of the Gingers Tavern bunch! I used to drop in and see him In Digby periodically but as I look back into the archives of my mind I think it was 1984 the last time I saw him! I can tell you Tag was always a gentleman and he treated people well including myself! He was a great guy and although I haven’t seen him for years I was saddened to learn this news and sure wish I could have seen him in the more recent years but seems that’s the way life goes by times! Rest Easy my easy going friend until we meet again! Sincerely Jerry Edwards!
