Friends, family, and loved ones —
I am sorry to report that Greg died on the morning of Saturday, August 11th, of complications from the medical treatment that was meant to cure him of cancer. In the last weeks his medical team worked hard and Greg kept his spirits up as they battled with an escalating number of problems that eventually overwhelmed him.
Not long ago Greg was asked to participate in an internet meme in which you try to define yourself in seven words. The words he chose were: “Offering you a lighter for your lamp.” That light has now gone out, but the many lamps it lit are still burning and through them Greg shines brightly in the world still.
