Deceased June 29, 1997, North Ridgeville, Ohio.
I moved to Rocky River between sophomore and junior years, and didn't know anyone. Greg was our new, next-door neighbor and he pretty much took me under his wing, showed me around, introduced me to his friends, and made the move tolerable. He and I hung out for the next 2 years, and I remember best how he came alive during the varsity basketball play-offs, even though I seem to recall he was perhaps the smallest guy on the team. He had a trick shoulder that kept him out of football, but he spent time with me in the summers, working on my skills. We lost track of each other after a couple years of college when my family moved away and I stopped coming to Rocky River.
It was somewhat shocking to see Greg has been gone now almost 20 years. I hope he had some joy and pleasure in that missing time when we did not speak. Requiescat in pace, buddy.
