My good friend Greg passed away suddenly Monday morning. He was 48, full of life, a runner, health conscious, a husband, a father of three and a friend to countless people. He pushed you to be better with his words and his example.

Darrel, Kirk, Greg, Bob

This was a picture taken after the 2008 Snowflake 5k. Our smiles not only reveal our delight of sweeping the heavy weight category but disguise the sub zero wind chills we endured…mostly because we didn’t want Greg’s harassment of not showing up.

He was the first friend I made after we moved to Flushing in 1997, and my life is better because of knowing him. There are so many stories I have about Greg…moving ones, touching ones, funny ones…but now is not the time and here is not the place to share them.

Please be praying for his family this week: wife Lora, children Josh, Talia and Elijah

The funeral will be Saturday at 10:30am.
