Jackie and Family, We are deeply saddened and shocked to hear of Greg's passing. We are so very sorry for your loss and offer our heartfelt condolences. We have fond memories back when Mike and Greg worked together years ago, and also getting to know you and your family. Greg had the best laugh and smile. But most surprising is that we live close by and never knew you both had relocated to this area.... sad that we lost contact and missed out getting together.... our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Rest in peace Greg.
No words can express my sorrow nor ease your pain. It was a pleasure to work with Greg . Our talks about our families really brightened the work day. His love of family really shone through especially when finding out what his granddaughter was up too. He was truly a cut above,and will be missed!
My deepest condolences to the family. I can’t not put into words how sad to hear about Greg. I worked with him closely at Longos Applewood as one of my meat cutters. Which grew into a friendship. It was always great to walk into work and see his big smile. Ready to make your day. He loved talking about his family, his dog, and of course the leafs. I have so many memories of him and it saddens me that I won’t be hearing from him as we still kept in contact after so many years of not working together. I will cherish all our memories together for the rest of my life. Thank you Greg for being such a beautiful soul. I will truly miss you my friend.
I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I worked with Greg at the Independent and genuinely looked forward to speaking with him everyday. Greg's kindness and friendliness helped me to feel welcome and comfortable when I was first hired. He is going to missed something fierce.
Dear Jackie, there are no word's to express the sadness I feel. when Greg came to pick up the boys he was always funny making silly little joke's we all loved him, I know your heart is broken Jackie but it will heal because Greg would want you to live on with his heart in Your heart, be strong Jackie. love cousin Joan.
To my dear friend Jackie. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Wising you peace, comfort, courage and lots of love at this time of sorrow. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love.
You were only on the court a short time but you really left a mark with your scaring all the kids and your surprise firecrackers. You were so full of energy. I would frequently find the court kids gathered around your garage “bugging” you. The kids still think you might be just hiding somewhere again to play a joke on them. I’ll miss all the talks of wildlife and your amazing pictures of the fox who was always hanging around. You’ll never know that 2 foxes showed up together the night you passed to eat the food you had left them under our camera. There’s never been more then one fox on the court before. Our condolences to the family. Everyone on the court is there for you. He always talked about how proud he was of his family and he definitely moved to the right place for the last time. For such a short time being here, He is unbelievably missed by everyone on the court.
My deepest sympathies, Jackie, to you and your family. May you be surrounded with love and support from everyone around you, now and in the days to come. Love, Brenda
To my dear friend Jackie. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Greg's genuine warm and welcoming hospitality was reflective in his beautiful smile. I will always cherish the wonderful day I spent with you, Greg and Emma in your backyard last fall. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love.
My deepest condolences to the family, Greg was an amazing guy, you could count on a joke, smile and laughter, where ever there was laughter, Greg was the reason, we had some amazing times, he would come in 30 minutes before his shift, just to talk, about anything and everything, Leafs, his Dog, the photos he took on the weekend at his trailer, would bring in his portfolio and show his pictures, he would talk about his family, he was so proud of his children, and a proud man himself, truly will miss him.
I am saddened to hear about Greg's sudden passing. I got to know him while working at Longo's Applewood a few years ago. He was so kind, caring and funny. He was always there to lend a helping hand and his stories/jokes were the best! May he rest in perfect peace. Extending my deepest condolences to his family.
To the Monahan Family, my deepest and dearest condolences. Greg was one of the greatest, most interesting people I have ever known. He touched so many lives with his positive energy. Rest easy my friend.
Our thoughts are with you and your family at this time❤I first met Greg when he ordered supplies from me. He was always nice and friendly. Then he moved onto my family street and really got to know him. You will be truly missed my friend💛
We were taken by surprise to hear of Greg's passing, the memories I have with him are great and full of laughs. We offer our sincerest condolences and prayers. With love, Rest In Peace, Greg
Our deepest sympathies. Sending our love and prayers to you all. Greg’s passing took a piece of our hearts. His infectious smile and the times we spent together will always be fondly remembered. Rest In Peace Greg. God Bless.
I have been a good friend of Greg since meeting him here at Applewood, he'll be missed. I am so shocked to hear about his passing, I just messaged him on Friday and found it weird my friend didn't message me back yet. Only to see on a co-workers post of his passing a day later hurt me more ways then one. I loved that guy his jokes and his passion in his stories about his son and wife will be forever missed. Sorry to everyone affected by his loss, we will all miss him in our own special way

We were so deeply saddened to hear of Greg's sudden passing. He was such a joy to have on the "family court". Always had a big smile on his face and friendly hello dear everytime we met on the street. I would quite often yell out the door, "pick me the winner" when he would walk by the house to get his lottery tickets down at the corner store. We will really miss him and send our sincere condolences to the entire family at this sad time. May he rest in peace.
