Words can hardly describe my thoughts when learning of Greg's passing. I knew Greg and Jill during my years in the Georgia territory with Mobil, Tenneco, Pactiv, etc. They were instrumental in my consistently growing the film volume in my territory with the Lantech equipment they sold. Although I haven't worked with Greg in a number of years, I've always considered him, as well as Jill, as friends. I will always remember Greg, and wish Jill and the entire family my deepest sympathy during this time.

I was fortunate to know Greg as both a neighbor and a co-worker. His wife Jill and my wife were also friends. I am greatly saddened to learn of his passing. Greg was a wonderful man. He was devoted to his family and dedicated to his work. It is difficult to understand, but Greg's work here on earth is complete. He will forever enjoy eternal happiness. For this and the great memories of Greg , we are thankful.

I had the pleasure of working with Greg on a few Lantech projects in So Ga. and knew from the first time we met he was a "GREAT" guy & always made a hard project easy!! Working was a fun thing to him. He loved what he did. He will be remembered by a lot of people.

Greg and I lived in the same neighborhood. We were football teammates at Trinity High School and he drove us to and from our double session practices in August for 2 seasons. I remember having some good conversations with him on those drives back and forth. We were both running backs, pretty good ones. As I recall, he was allstate his senior year on our state championship team. Greg was one year ahead of me and we had some great times practicing and playing together. He also hired me at Lantech, which was my first good job out of college. What I remember most about him though is the way he treated people, always kind and with a big smile. He was also a lot of fun, liked to have a good time, and was a great person to be around. I’m glad I knew him. Rest In Peace my friend. Chris Brosky
