Flowers are graciously accepted as anyone who knew Greg, also knew his love for the outdoors. A donation can also be made to The Gander and Area S.P.C.A in his memory as his love for animals surpassed all.

Gregory’s love for gardening and animals were his passion. He grew his own vegetables and he always made sure everyone had the opportunity to have a pet or a fresh egg of breakfast… at a cost, of course. His life was a series of ups and downs for many years but his love for his family and from his family always pulled him through. Some may say they saw his at his worst and others may say they saw him at his best. But the one thing for sure is we can all say his life was a complete 360. The past 16 years in a personal care home helped him to overcome many obstacles and to turn his life completely around. He loved, laughed and enjoyed life in a way we as a family thought we’d never see and for that we are so grateful. It brings us comfort to know that his is now in the arms of an angel, his mother.
