Greg was a very intuitive, courageous, gentle spirit with a kind and generous heart. He will be remembered for his love for family, friends and God. His innate sense of humour and his incredible ability to remember everything was very endearing and adored by many. Greg treated everyday like an adventure, living each day in the moment. He was the most patient and forgiving human being. Greg will be sadly missed for his wonderful and strong character. Greg touched the lives of everyone he met.
