REMEMBERING

Dr. Gregory Hollstrom II

have a memory or condolence to add?

ADD A MEMORY
Judy and Steve Saienga

September 20, 2018

We had the privilege of meeting Greg once many years ago and came to know him better through our relationship with his mom and step-father.

Greg was probably ten or twelve years old at the time he visited our home in Minnesota. When I set the table for dinner he noted how the placemats were very attractive with the wood grains of the table and complemented me on my choice of colors. I remember thinking how very thoughtful he was and sensed he was a very special little guy.

May you all be blessed with fond memories of this very special person in your lives as you celebrate his life together.

Sincerely,

Judy and Steve Saienga

I had the privilege of having Dr. Hollstrom as a mentor when I first graduated from chiropractic college back in 1998 ( I can't believe it was that long ago). He graciously agreed to allow me to intern in his practice so I could qualify to sit for the Florida state board test. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in his practice as he was a patient and giving mentor who worked diligently every day to help his patients as much as possible. My time with him went by quickly as I was gaining valuable experience and learning more every day.
I am grateful for the opportunity to have spent time with Dr. Hollstrom and to consider him both a mentor and a friend. My thoughts and prayers for comfort at this difficult time go out to his entire family and all of his friends. Thank you for everything Greg and Godspeed.

We were both patients of Dr. Greg and thought he was wonderful, he sent a note to Bonny's primary physician telling him that he suspected she had an autoimmune disease and he was correct just from her symtoms that they had discussed. He was a super intelligent and caring person and will be missed by all. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family.

Dr Greg II was a great guy a wonderful doctor. His care and treatment were stellar after my accidents. His humor and and wisdom helped during the healing process. He loved his wife and girls we often spoke about. I was his father's patient for many years. Great family. My condolences to his parents Dr Gregory Hollstrom and wife Kathy.

I am so sorry to hear of Greg's passing. He was one of kindest Doc's I know.
He helped me tremendous and I could not thank him enough. He would always talk of his girls because I have one of my own. He would say "Just wait..."(my girl is younger) Just a genuine really good guy. When he had the accident, sadly I stopped going for treatment because I only wanted to see him. I'm so sorry for the family and friends and the office. My prayers are with you all. God Bless.

I have been a patient of Dr Greg’s for 15 years and started seeing him when I was in high school. I’ll never forget how he would quiz me on whatever I was studying through college. He was such an intelligent man ! Also, through my dating years I’ll never forget him telling me that dating was just icing on the cake and (myself) the cake was good enough without the icing !

My mother was a previous patient of his as well and we send our condolences to his family AND work family through this difficult time <3

I grew up with Greg. We were best friends in middle school and I was at his house often. He taught me to play basketball and to love the sport he was so passionate about. The photos his family posted brought back so many great memories. My deepest sympathy to his family.
