Please accept our deepest sympathy for the loss of Greg. He was a "mensch" and always helped others. I remember his volunteer service for the Plains township paramedics. always helping someone. A well lived life of selfless service. He met and exceeded Mark Twain's challenge “Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.” We have cherished memories of our family get together many years ago when we were young.

We are so deeply sad to hear that Greg has passed away. He was the most fun loving and caring person we have ever met. He lived a wonderful life taking care of others. He was never selfish and had not one ounce of hate in his body. That was our first and lasting impression he gave of himself. It was an honor knowing him. He will be deeply missed. May God give strength to his family at this sad sad time.

I'm so very saddened to hear of Greg's passing. He was such a genuinely good person and he touched so many lives throughout his career as a funeral director, paramedic and first responder. I’m grateful to have worked with Greg, he was a friend and brother on DMORT-III and I will miss him. You've earned your heavenly reward, Greg. Go rest high on that mountain, your work on earth is done. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace, Amen.
