    I knew Greg for over 25 years professionally, meeting at a LISA confernece in Montrey in the 90s. He had always a keen wit and a story to tell – he will be missed.

    Quiet Joy

    We have missed
    the quiet joy
    you presence brought.
    The golden warmth
    of your soul
    and the smile
    in your words.
    They are sorely missed
    in these uncertain times,
    though in truth all times
    are uncertain,
    bat your words made
    the world seem less so.
    We waited and prayed that
    all that was, would be
    as it was and all
    would be well and good
    and that your
    quiet joy
    would grace us
    once again.
    This did not come
    to pass and health
    slips from us all
    and life is often filled
    with sudden ends and
    sad passages of hearts
    and quiet souls.
    So here’s to memories
    and to time –
    that great healer.
    To patient moments
    spent in waiting
    and in prayer.
    To the past
    and days when
    we rejoiced
    in the warmth
    of your soul,
    the laughter of
    your smiling words
    and your quiet joy.
    And to the future
    and the memories have
    of your quiet joy.

    I am very sorry for your loss. I knew Greg through working at McGill. He was, without a doubt, one of the kindest, most gracious people I have ever met. He was smart but humble. He was a grateful person who loved and adored his family. It was always uplifting to speak to him because he was so upbeat and treated everyone with respect. Rest in peace.

    While we saw little of each other in our later years, I still look back in fondness at our family trips to Chambly and the chance to swim in a pool and play in that stream that ran beside your house. I think the last time I saw Greg was at your Mom’s house in Sutton when you guys were clearing it up. He was a nice guy, never pleasant to see your cousins pass, especially when you are the eldest one!

    On behalf of all of your former and current friends from Fort Chambly, may you rest peacefully and with only fond memories.

      Its only been 52 gears since I last saw you so I’m sure neither of us has changed, Ron. I was in Chambly in 2008 and looked up Gary Farrar and his brother Sandy. We spent a good couple of hours re-living and laughing about the old days. Hope life has treated you well. Take care!

    I remember putting together a “band” in Greg’s basement in the ’60s – at least that’s what we thought we were. I lost touch with Greg after moving away in ’68. Greg was always the avant garde thinker. I value the friendship I had with him.
