Greg served 20 years with the Canadian Armed Forces. Upon his return to Newfoundland he joined the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 64, Holyrood where he served on the executive until his passing. Greg was a unique, free spirited individual who lived life on his terms. He had a charismatic and endearing personality that drew people to him. He was loved by many. Greg may have been one of the best pool players in the area and he played darts with fun and sportsmanship. Greg was loved among family and friends simply for who he was and for the joy he brought to others through his humor, his laughter and his love of celebration. We will love him and hold him in our hearts forever. According to COVID restrictions, visitation will be in Hickey’s Funeral Home, Holyrood on Friday, August 6, 2021 from 3 PM – 7 PM.
