Greg was a warm, lov­ing and kind man who cared deeply about his fam­ily and friends. His sense of hu­mor brought much joy to all of our lives. He al­ways brought light and love to the peo­ple he met, and was one of the best of men. A grad­u­ate in Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing from Vir­ginia Tech, he was an avid fan of all Hokie sports, es­pe­cially foot­ball. Greg served in the VA Na­tional Guard and had a very suc­cess­ful 35 year ca­reer with the Depart­ment of De­fense. When he re­tired he was serv­ing as the first civil­ian Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Works and Lo­gis­tics at Fort Lee. He was a proac­tive man­ager and a nat­u­ral leader who knew how to lis­ten to his co­work­ers.
