I knew Greg for a short 8 months as regional counterparts for Jamail & Smith. In that brief time, I relied on Greg for professional guidance; he was always available for any questions I may have had. He was approachable, a team player and a trusted colleague. I will miss him and can truly say that his passing is a great loss to me, personally and professionally.
