I've known Greg ever since we were kids growing up in the Harbor.  The fire department was his life and he always had a passion for it.  He was humorous, energetic and caring.  As often happens, friends drift away and get busy with their lives so its been many years since I had a chance to see Greg.  I was saddened to hear this morning of his passing.  Greg will always be remembered by me as a kind man with a huge heart who cared for his fellow man.  I will miss him.

Very sorry for your loss.    I only spent limited time around Greg growing up but he was full of positive spirit and fun to be around.  Made a great contribution through his life's work as a fire fighter, and left too soon.

Sorry for your loss. He looks so much like your dad.  I remember Greg as a baby back when we were just kids.  Hope life is treating you well. Joanie Maddock Eldred
