Greg was a loving husband, adoring father and doting grandfather. To others he was a devoted brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend. He lived and loved each day for all he could. He was a gift to those who knew him.Services: A private ceremony with immediate family to be held on Sunday, October 18, 2020.
