    So sorry to hear of Greg’s death. He was a student when I was principal at Buffalo High School. He was vibrant, engaging and always a presence. I enjoyed his authentic personality and big smile. We visited periodically after his graduation. I loved his enthusiasm and sense of humor. Sending my best wishes to his family.

    Greg infectious smile and positive attitude will be greatly missed. He always had time to talk. He would chase my mom down to catch-up. That was the kind man he is. Know that Greg and Gil Sr. are smiling on all of you.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Greg was a great person – from the smile to the generous heart. He was a great supporter of the Ry’s Hope Foundation, whether it was golfing in the yearly tournament or showing his support at a Saturday meat raffle. He will be greatly missed.
