I have known Greg since childhood. Always happy and such a great friend to all who knew him. A gentle giant who always saw the best in people. I saw Greg in November as we were attending a funeral of one of our classmates. My last visit with him and yes, he was smiling! I will miss that sweet smile. Rest In Peace my friend.

Every single memory I have of Greg from elementary school to the last time I saw him at a class reunion - he was smiling. I'll miss his great sense of humor and easy going nature. A truly wonderful person that has left us all a little better for knowing him.
Rest easy my friend.
