  1. Greg and i were firefighters together in Kennett Fire Company in the 1970s. He was a good firefighter and a good man. He and I stayed in contact into the middle 1980s, then lost touch until 2015 when I was able to re-connect with him. I live in Texas now and don’t get back to Pennsylvania very often. i was hoping to find some time on a trip after my soon-to-be retirement. My condolences.

  3. My sympathies and thoughts are with Greg’s family. I knew Greg from Elementary school and shared his interest in aerospace. Thanks to his contributions to the emergency services industry, a very important part if our community. Glad to have known him, and had the opportunity to catchup with him at one of the KSHS reunions.
