    Stacey and I had a chance to get to know Greg when we worked together on Lukas and Shelby’s house last summer. He worked hard and did a great job on the house painting. We enjoyed getting to know him better.
    You could surely tell he really loved his family. Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to family and friends.

    I had the privilege of working alongside Greg for many years while we were at Tweddle Group in Clinton Township. We worked together very closely while our office was in Rochester Hills. Greg was a great guy to have at work! Very funny and very caring. I have spoken to him a few times since my departure from the company and it was always a great conversation. Greg will always be a great guy and I will miss him being around.

    My condolences and prayers to all of Greg’s Family.
    I’ve been blessed to have worked with Greg for many, many years. I will miss him, his witty sarcastic humor, and smile, which was captured in the image. Sharing the same first name, we used to say all the time its a “Greg thing, people just don’t understand” and laugh about it.
    Miss you Greg, rest in peace my friend.
