Greg is, and always will be one the happiest, most uplifting human beings I have ever known. It was a true honour to know you and an even greater honour to call you a friend. Greg, and the life he lived, was absolutely beautiful in every way. He lit up every room, and dressing room, he was in. Thinking about Shawna and his family everyday… He lived a wonderful life.
Greg was in my grade 3 class at Beverly Central School, and I was so very saddened to read of his passing. I can still see his sweet smile, and remember his helpful ways … such a beautiful child. I am glad to hear that his life was full for the short time he was here with us.
My sincere sympathies to all his family.

I am a nurse who met Greg during his many visit’s to the JCC. It was always a pleasure to see him and his supportive family, especially his wonderful wife. He was so easygoing, always smiling and pleasantly accepting his difficult circumstance. He had lessons to show us all. His strength of character, his hope in the future and his love of family, friends and life. It was my fortune to have met him. Peace to his loved ones.
