Greg will forever be missed. He was a leader, mentor and most importantly, a dear friend. I have many memories with Greg because we shared lots of long talks and plenty of laughs. So many laughs that led to tears and snorts! :) Perhaps one of my fondest memories of Greg is the fact that he was one of the first colleagues in the industry who took "the kid" seriously. Greg was always willing to listen, hear new ideas and share insight with the hopes of making the community stronger. Greg was a relationship guru. He knew how to get the best out of people. Greg was the best! He will leave a legacy of a first-class friend, colleague and man!

Rest in peace Greg.

All our love,
Catherine & Adam Wieckowski
