Greg will be missed by the class of 1968. Greg was proud of being a east ender and always said," if you aint got by now, you arn't gone have it". RIP

I got to know Greg better after we graduated because he carried the light bulbs I needed for my kitchen lights that no one else seemed to have. He was a proud father; he sure loved his daughter. He was always pleasant and helpful.

I stopped by his store one day in 2007 when I was in town on business.  He was on the phone giving some woman "hell" because she wanted to buy something "cheap" .  He just said "go to Walmart" and hung up.  Now that's some real "customer Service"  I always liked Greg.

Greg was one of my best friends in High School. I do not make it back to Newark very often but I did see Greg everytime I returned. He was a great guy.
