ADD A MEMORY

Dear Mrs. Bylo, Justine and extended family members, I had the honor of working for Greg at Integra Life sciences. When I first met him what immediately stood out was his positive spirit and his optimistic outlook on everything he dealt with. Certain environments can be harsh and hard to adjust to, but Greg was a refreshing individual to work for and I have nothing but the fondest memories of working for him. I wanted to write this note as I hope it brings comfort to you knowing that he was inspirational to many of us at Integra and knowing he is no longer with us brings me sorrow. After reading the obituary it makes sense to me that Greg was a god-fearing man and his faith showed through his actions. Stay assured that through this faith and hope in Christ while he may no longer be with us, you will all one be reunited. Pray you all continue in your journey in the manner Greg would have wanted you to live. Sincerely, Jonathan

I have not seen Greg & Marianne 30 years but have very fond memories of visits with them both as I travelled from Scotland to visit them. They have both been in my thoughts many times over the years. I know Marianne you will have many cherished memories that will keep you united with Greg in your heart always. He was a man who loved well and was well loved. Sending love and prayers always. X

I had the pleasure of working with Greg years ago at Kearfott, and knowing him as well from living in my grandmother's neighborhood. Even after I left Kearfott, I would see him occasionally when visiting her, outside working on the house. He was always such a pleasant guy, and always highly thought of by those who came in contact with him. We are both saddened to hear of his passing, and our sincerest condolences to Marianne and Justine.

I had jut moved to New Jersey from Baltimore and I worked with Greg on the Genesis project. One weekend when I was working in the office in Paramus he came in with his daughter. She was maybe around 12 - and I just remember being so impressed with my brief conversation with her - her wisdom, grace and maturity at such a young age gave me even more insight to the quality people her parents were. Yes, and Greg was beaming with love and pride. Twenty years later that memory still means a lot to me - thank you for the sharing. I also remember working with Greg in Brasil, just the world a better place with him in it - I know you must miss him so and I am so sorry for your loss.

My sincere condolences to the Bylo family. It has been many years since I had the pleasure of working with Greg during his time supporting Supply Chain with BD. He was a pleasure to work with and I am sure will be missed by all those he touched in this life.

Sincerely,

Dear Marianne, Justine & Family,
How does one put into words the special person Greg was. He was gentle of person and heart.
He truly embraced his family and friends in such caring ways. Joe and I always commented on how perfectly matched both he and Marianne were. I guess one would say their marriage was made in heaven. Know that you are all in my prayers. Love, Elaine

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I consider myself blessed to have known Greg and an honor to have worked beside him for a year. He was always so gracious, kind and generous to all who were fortunate enough to know him. God Bless him and his beloved family.

Such sad news. My heart goes out to you all.

My memories of Greg were back our high school and college years at Uconn and at his home in Norwalk with his family there. He was such a gentle soul, kind and so smart. Lots of funny times too. To watch him grow up into a strong, caring and loving father, husband and active community member was a joy.

Too young, too early! We were lucky to have him in our lives.

Rest In Peace Greg.

❤️
