I'll always remember when Greg came into juvenile court and as soon as he entered through the front door his presence was known,. I remember at first when I met him, I thought he was a big meany, Over many months , I got to know he was a big warm teddy bear,. It won't be the same after I get back to work, I had foot surgery for second time,. He always called me crip, because I wore a brace on my right foot. I will miss him dearly. Rest in peace my friend, enjoy your rewards in heaven, for I know you are truly there. Love your juvenile clerk friend. Pamela

Greg was my Pool partner on Pool league years ago. We had a lot of fun & that seemed to irritate some people, lol. That's actually a good thing playing pool, if you can throw the other team off their game, lol. He'll be missed.

Greg was a great guy and a good lawyer. There was never a time that I would see him ( usually in court) when he was not in good spirits and joking about something. He was very competent when I tried the case against him. He will be missed. He was a professional friend.

Greg was a law school classmate of mine. I saw him often at the Lima Fraternal Order of the Eagles. He never failed to say "hello," and ask how I was doing. I hadn't seen him the last few times we stopped at the Eagles, and was worried he wasn't doing well. Greg will be missed. Prayers.
