The family wishes to extend their gratitude to all who loved Greg and considered him a friend. Greg could be the silliest or sternest person in the room, depending on what he felt the room needed. He cared for and honored the life-systems that brought his family prosperity while encouraging a healthy dose of rebellion and skepticism. He was a caring soul with a deep love for laughter, and he will be missed.
