    Greg’s passing came as a shock to us, being close family friends from Australia and having visited with Greg, Cherie & family many times over almost fifty years of friendship.

    We hold very fond memories of our times spent together, both here and
    in the US.

    RIP Greg, we will miss you mate.

    Love, Tracey & Allan Wheeler
