Greg loved music and playing the blues on one of his many guitars. He was an active ham radio operator, having first obtained a license at the age of 12. He and Barbara enjoyed weekend getaways to B&B's around Wisconsin and at their Lakeview retreat in Door County. Greg appreciated fine dining and brandy old fashioned sours. Communication was very important to him. Never carrying fewer than two phones, Greg was always connected to friends, family and B&B guests. His caring and gentle spirit will be greatly missed.
