    Dad, I know you won’t read this but I know those who cared for you will. If you know my dad, you know – he loved his wife, his family, fishing and Florida. He led with honesty and integrity and was always willing to lend a hand when needed, because it was the right thing to do. He always had a positive outlook on life even when times got dark, and they did get dark. He worked his fingers to the bone, literally. His work ethic was unmatched. He was a self made man, he had no handouts. As a Dad, he was the king of consistency and even when I pushed (and trust me, I pushed) he was still consistent. His morals and values never wavered. He was never too busy to answer my calls, ever. He was loyal and the best secret keeper. He could talk to anybody about anything. He loved telling a good story. He had no regrets in life and lived life on his terms. He had many interests, many hobbies and many talents. He was good at all of them. He was surrounded by his family when he passed and our hands were on his heart as he took his last breath. I know he didn’t want to go that night and I know he fought like hell to give us that final moment of closure, he knew we would need it. That’s just the kind of guy he was.

    💔 Jodi

    Greg was an amazing man and always looked out for me! SMYC will never be the same now that he’s gone, but his legacy will live on forever! Such a hard working, determined, caring soul who was an amazing family friend and one of the best fishing buddies a girl could have! My heart goes out to Karen, Tony, and the rest of children and family! Rest In Paradise Greg and watch over us from above. My next fishing trip will be dedicated to you! Till we meet again buddy!!

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Greg and I were friends in High school he was the kind of guy everyone gravitated to, or should I just say easy to like. We went our own ways after that but he was thought of throughout the years.
    He will be missed
