Greg and I grew up playing golf together and in general, hanging out at Greensburg Country Club. Will never forget playing with him our senior year in high school, amongst many other times. While I never met his wife and children, I pray for their comfort in the days and years ahead. I also send special prayers to his parents, Gary & Phyllis, who I knew very well from GCC as well. Greg was such a great guy and makes me very sad to know of his family’s loss. RIP Greg.

I used to see kids at Dana’s for speech therapy. I remember how I used to think how much in love Greg and Dana were. Dana always talked so highly of Greg and I respected that so much. I also remember both of them were so welcoming and easy to converse with. My heart goes out to the entire family. You will remain in my prayers. ❤️

Phyllis, so sorry for you loss. I have no memory to share about your son as I did not know him. I can't grasp what losing a son might be but I am sure it is a terrible feeling and broken heart.

I aways enjoyed talking to Greg. while walking around past his house. We watched his children grow up in our neighborhood and had joy seeing them play. Lord Jesus take care of his family and keep them safe and comfort them as they say their good byes to their husband and father. In Jesus name I ask, Amen.
