Greg was such fun playing trombone in the marching band.  He would often perform card tricks to the amazement of the guys gathered around trying to figure out how he did his magic.  He helped maintain the large lawns in the Waterswold Addition during the fall when the leaves began to drop.  We made some date money during those weeks of October.  I am sure your great humor and energetic personality will be missed by all who new you. 

God Bless You Old Friend,
