So shocked and sadden to learn of Greg’s death . We worked together and spend a lot of lunch/ break times together . Sometimes just blew off steam. I will miss him at our old Farts luncheons . No matter were we went Greg’s order was the same. Sometimes I would order for him before he had a chance and it was always pickle chips not spears . Again my sympathy to you.
I worked with Greg. My deepest sympathy.
Becky we are so sorry for your loss. We will keep you in our prayers
Greg was a wonderful musician. I will miss you my friend. So very sorry for your loss.
Greg was a fantastic musician with a great sense of humor. I was amazed that someone of his skill level seemed to enjoy playing with somebody of my skill level. I’m grateful for his generosity and friendship. Jimbo
I really connected to Greg. We had some great musical conversations. Every time we talked, I learned something. Marilyn, my wife, enjoyed his personality, dry wit. He was always willing to share his expertise. He always shared his uke magazine. He will be greatly missed.
To Greg’s family, I ‘m sorry I just heard about Greg tonight–6 months late. Somehow I didn’t see this notice. I went to high school with Greg his last 2 years. I mved to Lawrenceville in 1967. God Bless You All during this difficult time. Peace!
