  4. Very sorry to hear about Greg. I didn’t know he had been sick. I worked with Greg at Scotiabank and saw lots of him whenever we had opportunities or problems to fix . He was always very professional and a true Scotiabanker.

  6. Greg’s passing came as an absolute shock. I was not aware he was ill. Greg and I worked together for years in the Calgary Regional Office of Scotiabank. I will always value having known Greg for those many years. My condolences to his family.

  16. Gerald and Faye Price :

    Little did we know, when Carol and Faye met in the maternity ward, that we would become lifelong friends. We owned horses and holidayed together, and are still close after 40 years. Never saw a bigger grin than when Greg was trying to steal a bid at Rook. Thanks for the fun times and great memories. Greg will be sorely missed.
    Our condolences to Carol, Tera, and Deb.
