Greg, (Daddy, Pop-Pop, Poppa Slurf, Slick, The Original), will be forever remembered for his generous heart, animated story-telling, his moves on the dance floor and of course his golf game.
Anyone who was lucky enough to spend time with him will never forget his ability to tell the best stories where he laughed at all his jokes.
His laughter still rings in our hearts.
