I was fortunate to teach Gregory in elementary and secondary school. Although he was quiet and shy in the classroom setting, what always set him apart was that he was friendly and kind hearted.(I was a supply teacher so we’re most grateful to have students like Gregory in class) Beyond school, I would sometimes see Gregory working in the community (most recently at Shoppers) and I would always get a friendly hello or bright smile even if he was busy working. My prayers go out to all of his family, friends and co-workers. Gregory’s memory and generous spirit will live on in each of us and will be reflected by all of us who met him, loved him, and worked with him. We will remember him. Taken far too soon. Rest In Peace. So deeply sorry for your loss. Kimberly Arnold and family

Sometimes in our lives, we are personally touched by our younger generation. Gregory, was one of the most personable young men that I have ever met, who was always polite, had gentle and kind ways, and was always working hard. I will miss seeing you, and, chatting with you at Foodland. Sending you off on wings of silver with apples of gold.


Dear family... I am so sorry to hear this saddened news. My condolences are sent. It was a pleasure to have met such a wonderful young man.

I had the pleasure of working with this kind, friendly young man, a great co-worker! I was still learning the job(Foodland) and he jumped in to help me out.I was hoping to connect more with him outside of the job. ☹. I am shocked at this news and send my deepest condolences to his family and friends.
