    I first made friends with Greg through ham radio activities. A really nice guy and we talked quite a bit over our radios coming and going from work. He also was president of our ham radio club.
    In recent days I had not heard him on much. I feel bad I didnt keep up with Greg better.
    Our prayers to Greg’s wife and family for Gods comfort and peace.

    I knew Greg (Gabby) back in Wilmette @ Howard Jr High and New Trier.. We got a chance to spend a few weeks as teenagers up in the northwoods when we ran into each other during summer break.. Always known as a Great guy and I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I will always remember his sense of humor and laugh.. Our best to his family…

  7. Donald Stein Says:

    So sorry to hear about “Gabby”. We were in the 7th grade together, at Howard JHS. I remember him with a full head of bushy hair though! Rest In Peace, Greg, and God bless and comfort you, and your loving family. Shalom my friend!

  8. Mike O'Dea Says:

    Jim Petersen called with the sad news last week.

    I met Gabby in high school. Truly a great soul. It wasn’t the fact that he walked to his own beat; it was the ease and comfort in the way that he carried himself that I admired.

    Thoughts and prayers to all of his family, especially his brother Kevin.

    Know that we love you.

Leave Your Condolence
