    Words can not express how sad I am. It was my privilege to have met Gregg over 11 years ago and to have spent almost everyday working with him. He was the rock of Graves Bros. and made every day more pleasurable. I am so greatful that he shared his life and family with me. I shall miss him immensely. May you all find peace and comfort in your memories and know he will be missed by many. Love to you all.

  10. Debbie and family,
    so sorry to hear this sad news,our thoughts and prayers are with you,If you need anything call at any time,

  11. Debbie, it is very hard for anyone/anything to make me speechless. Gregg leaving us so soon, so unexpectedly has done that to me. You are so right, he was an idol in our neighborhood. We are here for you today and tomorrow. God Bless YOU, the kids and family during these very tough times.

  12. From an old friend, that has only seen Gregg in passing on the highway in the last few years. Gregg was a great guy and I’ll cherish the memory of knowing him.

  13. I have known Gregg for many years in a supplier/contractor relationship and cannot think of a more sincere and respectable individual. Honorable, caring, competent, professional…these are words we would like see when we are described by others and ones which Gregg exemplified in all he did. He will be missed, not only by his family but by all his many friends and colleagues.

  14. I haven’t seen you for many years but I remember you fondly from high school. You will be missed! Debbie, my heartfelt prayers go to you and your children. He was way too young. Please take care.

  15. I was so sorry to hear about this. Jackie, you and your family are definitely in my thoughts. I’m sorry that Stephen and I aren’t able to be in Rochester with you all.

  16. I work with his daughter, Jackie. It was a shock to hear of her father’s death at such a young age. My thoughts, prayers and good wishes are with Jackie and her family as they go through this difficult time.

  17. We were saddened to learn of Gregg’s passing today. Sue and I were friends and classmates of Gregg in high school. In later years I would see him only once in a while, including a recent chance meeting. Even as a teenager he was kind and gentle. Gregg was one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. He will be deeply missed, and fondly remembered. Sincerely, Paul.
