He enjoyed spending summers with family on New Hampshire lakes and Big Island Pond where his passion for boating began. Greg later moved to New Hampshire and was a self- employed electrician until his sudden passing.
Greg was recognized throughout the lake community as a very kind and generous person who used his mechanical and electrical skills to help friends and neighbors with various projects. He was known for presenting annual Fourth of July fireworks displays on the lake that were enjoyed by many, including Greg’s mother Marie, neighbors’ families and MA friends.
