  7. Alan Dickerson says:

    I worked with Greg at NAS Jacksonville until he retired. He had a very high work ethic and was always happy no matter how tough things got. We talked about his motor home, his travels, politics, the state of the world, etc. He was a great conversationalist and always emphasized the good things in life. He never got a chance to enjoy his retirement years but I know he is in a better place now playing and singing with the angels.
