He was a devoted brother to Katerina and husband Rocco; Lorraine (deceased) and Michael; and Diane (deceased) and uncle to Danielle, Milan, Kristin and Tyler. Greg’s great love was “his Joan McDonald”. They enjoyed 22 great years together hosting Christmas and pool parties and traveling to Mexico, Paris, Yellowstone and the Danube River cruise.
