    I’m saddened to hear of Greg’s passing.
    Being relatively new to Medicine Hat, I found Greg to be one of the welcoming people that I encountered here. He had shared his stories and his passion for life freely. He will be missed.

    So sorry to hear of Greg's passing. Far too soon. Seems like he just retired. I worked with Greg at two CBE schools. Very sad.

    Greg was an island of calm in what could be a stormy workplace. He was generous with his time and knowledge of computers when we all were just learning this knew technology. Quick with a laugh, story, or a joke in the lunch room, Greg never failed to be anything but good company. Blue Skies Greg
