Greg was an amazing person and could make my day better. Whenever I would replace him at 630 am, I could be in a sluggish mood. One smile from him and a quick joke would help me get my day started. I am saddened by his death. I will never forget Greg. Lisa, Melissa, Eric, and other family members, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Lisa, I am not sure if you even remember me, but I was deeply saddened to hear about your loss. Julie called to let me know about Greg's illness and I have been praying for you and your family. I know that it has been years since we have spoken, but hearing about Greg brought back all those memories of our times together "back in the day". We had some wonderful times and I will always cherish them. I wish you only the best and I hope that you and your family are able to find peace in these dark hours. Know that there are tons of people wishing you well and praying for you. Take care of yourself and each other. GOD Bless.

I want to send my condolences to Lisa, Melissa and Eric on the loss of Greg, who was a great person and one of the best friends I've ever had. I got to spend alot of time with your family over the years when the kids were young and Greg was always one of the best fathers I knew. I'm sure that everyone who knew Greg has a great story about him that shows how much of a good friend he could be to people. I'll never forget Greg and the good times we had.

My deepest sympathy to Lisa, their children Eric and Melissa , Greg's mother Carolyn and sister's Kim, Terry and Lana. Greg made this world a happier place for everyone. We can only live and continue to live as he lived and teach to others what he has taught us. I was only around Greg and Lisa and his sisters for a short time, many years ago. But the ever lasting impression of his and his family's spirit of love, kindness and happiness has remained with me . I'm holding you all close to my heart, today

Dear family, I know I didn't know all of you in person but knowing Greg and working with him on night shift on PCU we are a family in itself. We have been to all your events and vacations with his wonderful photos. His small woodworking projects he was so proud of and best of all the love and light in his eyes when he would share his family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Greg was an amazing man! I worked with Greg at the hospital. He taught me how to check a blood pressure 20 years ago before a became a nurse. You could always count on Greg for help when you needed it or a silly joke to lighten what was sometimes a depressing job. He will definitely be missed by all who was fortunate enough to meet him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all!!!

I was saddened to learn of Greg's death. He was such a giving person. I will always be grateful for your and his help when you stopped at my family's accident. Elizabeth can still remember your support and Greg's help even after 16 years! Greg always had a way of making people laugh. I always enjoyed watching him when he played drums in the "doctors band". He will be sorely missed.

Lisa & family - So very sorry to hear about Greg. He was a nice, friendly neighbor who I remember always working in the yard or throwing a ball with Eric or running Melissa places before she could drive. Your family is one of those things we remember when we think of "home". God bless all of you at this difficult time of year and always. Take care..
