Our sympathy at the passing of Greg. We have good memories of him becoming friends at the Neighbors Lounge. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this loss.

Greg had a zest for life that was envied by all who knew him. What a great sense of humor!! When you became his friend, you were best friends forever!
He truly loved and respected his ex-wife Teri always. And...daughter Jenny (Jen) was his proudest achievement However, each of his grandchildren was a jewel in his “Grandpa Crown.”
My husband Gary and Greg were friends in high school. Then, unknown to each other, they both enlisted in the USCG. After their service—again as fate would have it—they became troopers with the NSP in the same camp! The closeness did not stop there. Being NSP Criminal Investigators rounded their service out. Can you imagine those two on criminal cases!!! When Gary left the NSP to have a business, he needed a partner. Guess who??? Greg...of course.
Their careers paralleled each other and the friendship was true.
Greg will be truly missed but the memories we all have in our hearts will sustain us. He lived life to its fullest and loved and enjoyed his family as few people do. If you were fortunate enough to call him friend...you know—today— and can fully appreciate your luck of having him in your life.
