When I started in the security business one of my first clients was EJ. He and I always met weekly traveled to Vancouver and Timmins to visit the Toyota sites. EJ had a great since of life and enjoyment which I shared with him. My wife and I went to one of EJ's Christmas parties and had a wonderful time. I will miss him and he left us far to early in life.

My deepest sympathies to Greg's family and friends. While I only met Greg for a few hours on the day he showed up to the emergency department, I knew he was a special man. We had discussed getting together and having dinner and I had hoped we had been able to become closer friends. It seemed that within those those few hours we had made a special connection and I had never imagined that things would have turned out the way they did. I'm grateful he had his family by his side and his friends there with him along the way. I know he's in God's hands looking down and thankful for all the many people that loved him and will always remember him. I often thought of him and so I know those that knew him well will think of him daily and keep his memory alive. To those who knew him best and love him the most know that he will always be with you.

Greg and I went to school together and I always remember him smiling, laughing and joking around.
He was truly witty and we always liked being around him.
A good guy taken too soon.
Thanks for the laughs and memories Greg.

Over many years, EJ helped me in every way he could to solve all of my dilemma I had at Toyota Canada. I can still hear his footsteps coming up the stairs to the Executive Office asking me "what is your problem now?".... He was way too young to leave this world.
My heartfelt condolence to his family and friends.
I will dearly miss you, EJ.

I was saddened to hear of E.J.'s passing. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Have many great memories of our times together, mostly involving rum if I remember correctly! He truly was an amazing person and always filled a room with personality. Will miss him.
