Greg was my FRIEND and I miss him very much. Full of wisdom and thoughtfulness he was a uniquely talented and caring man. He helped me in so many ways it is really tough to realize that he no longer is there to provide wise counsel to rescue me on many fronts. We talked frequently, comparing notes, chasing opportunities and working on projects together. No one that has ever met him in his travels, to many cities and countries, ever had anything but praise for who he was, how he conducted his business and shared the gifts that God had given him. He was the best consultant that I have ever worked with, always thorough, but innovative in his approaches and recommendations. More importantly, he was the most genuine, good man a friend could ever be. Greg knew and shared so much with me, it is impossible to describe what he meant to my life and how much he will be missed.
Janice, you have Jenny and I and our family's sincere condolences on Greg's sudden passing.

Greg was a great friend to our family. Easy to talk to, generous to a fault, he made us feel like family. He had a calm and thoughtful way about him, and he always listened. I loved his stories of times past. He seemed to spend most of his time helping others. He was a lovely man. We are better people for having had the friendship of Greg. He is sorely missed.

Greg's work and the way he related to people, as well as his knowledge of healthcare, his analytical skills, and determination to make things better made a real difference for every client we served. At Synergy we will treasure the positive memories of working together. Don Strange (San Francisco)

Greg could flip a question and make someone think they want to do something they would never imagine themselves ever wanting to do. He took words seriously and used them to his and others' advantage. He taught me a number of things I will use throughout my career. He was incredibly generous; when he knew you liked something, he worked hard to make sure you had it, and plenty of it. He loved to tell stories and he had lots of them. I am most grateful for his interest in my son- he made my little guy feel important. He is missed.

Greg was the calm and steady voice in stormy seas. He was a clear thinker and a dedicated hard worker; a devoted husband; and a good friend. I mourn with his family at their sudden and unexpected loss. May God the Father embrace Greg's family in their time of mourning; May God the Son, Jesus, give them peace; and May God the Holy Spirit comfort and sustain them as they grieve.

Greg made a significant, positive impact on those he came in contact with at Westminster Canterbury Richmond. He was a brilliant, lovely person and will truly be missed. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to work with him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and close friends during this difficult time.

Greg, I have so many wonderful memories... you shaking your head when I would mess up a word document, giving me instructions... "don't change it, tell me what you want and I will fix it". I have lost a true friend and mentor. I will miss talking to you as I would drive home to Tennessee. Your words of wisdom and vast knowledge.... I am at a loss. I remembered you saying you wanted to go to PA and spend time with a good friend--tour the Harley Plant. You will be missed by so many...... I know you are watching over each and everyone you cared for.... I will smile as I wonder around in Excel and try to convert documents. I will see you shaking your head. Thank you for all your shared during the time we worked together. My thoughts and prayers are with your family....

The world was a better place because of Greg being such a huge part of it. The most thoughtful conversations over coffee with him at Westminster Canterbury were full of brillance, creativity and joy. Thank you, Greg, for the many blessings you shared and for being a part of my life journey. Your light will continue to shine through all of those you have touched. I will cherish the roasted coffee I have left that you so generously made and shared and keep you and your family that you always spoke of with such love and so much appreciation in my prayers.

Greg, I remember you as my first student and when we met at T and G Aviation, and your first solo at Aurora at 5 AM. Janice I am deeply saddened by his sudden death and will always remember him.
