My sincere condolences to Greg’s family. I was his classmates in Pittsfield, and we shared not only the same birthdate but also the section of the alphabet where his G for Graves was close to my I for Iftner, so in elementary school I often sat near him.
Greg was always kind, likable, and willing to help.
He will be missed.
