Predeceased by his brother Sam. Greg's passion for teaching will be truly missed. Donations may be made to the Durham Region Cancer Centre in his memory.

I met Greg through our teaching together at Durham College (Whitby) and later when he joined our team at George Brown College in Toronto. I connected with him immediately. Greg had integrity and was a dedicated teacher. His students respected him.
It is said, "the measure of a man is in the lives he's touched"... Greg touched many lives, including mine. So saddened by his loss, my thoughts are with you all.
