"Gregg, Miss you!! Think of you often... Happy Birthday"
"When I think of Gregg, I can recall many of our happy times. Our times sailing, camping, trips to Trout Lake, Mackinac Island, trips on Algoma Railroad, Caribbean cruises, several trips to Gatlinburg, etc. He may no longer be on this earth, but he will be remembered. Rest in peace!"
"My husband, Chuck, and I both worked with Gregg at Alverno. We enjoyed Gregg as a co-worker and a friend. It is with fondness that I remember Gregg and his candor, his humor, his loyalty, and his occasional stubbornness. I missed him when he moved away. Our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends."
"Lots of memories since we first met in 1975! Indy 500, sailing at Eagle Creek, Erickson 23, Catalina 25, camping at Holland MI, trips to Trout Lake MI, Mackinac Island, Gatlinburg TN, our dog Bo, moving to NC, boating on Jordan Lake, Emerald Isle, Harker's Island, Shackleford Banks, Cape Lookout, and so much more. Thank you for the memories!"
"While it has been some time since I've had contact with Gregg I fondly remember the times we spent together in Indy. We worked together many years at Alverno. What I remember most fondly were our sailing adventures during the time several of us owned sailboats on Eagle Creek. We spent many an evening on one of our boats, having a great conversation, and enjoying a beer or two. My sympathies to those who were part of his life in recent times. He will be missed."
"When I started working at Alverno in 1979, I worked with and for Gregg. He always made me feel happy and helped me learn the culture and skills I needed to be successful.
I have enjoyed remembered times working with Gregg."
