Sincere condolences

I had met Dr. Greg while my husband William Peeno and he exercised together at St. E. Cardiac Rehab and enjoyed talking with him. He definitely loved the medical field and Bill loved talking with him. Bill passed away October 18, 2019 and I offer my sincere prayers with you and your family. I am sure as I do, have so many wonderful memories of him. He always mentioned you, Julia and your love of your horses. God bless as you go on this journey.

Condolences to all who loved him

Julie, I was so very sad to hear of Greg’s passing. You (and all the family) are in my heart and thoughts at this difficult time. May your warm memories sustain you. With love, Janice Cox

Music memories

So sorry to hear. I have many fond memories of perusing many record stores and restaurants during my pathology electives in the mid-80’s. Almost made me want to be a Forensic Pathologist. Nothing but smiles!


27 years of friendship

I met Greg in the summer of 1990. From UC to STE, over the next 27 years, Greg & I sat together, reviewed pathology material on thousands of patients and shared even more memories. Yes, I think I pulled up more “loose stools” to sit with him than anyone else. Julia, he was more than a professional colleague. He was my special friend for most of my life. Please know my deepest feelings for your loss.
