I had a few "Best Friends" in High School and Greg was one of them. With both of us being 100% Czech it was natural that he'd teach me to play the drums (Greg was also an accomplished drummer). Then he, Ernie Havorka and I would be a 3 man band at Charlie's tavern on 42nd and Y Street. Afterwards we'd sneak down stairs and "have a few" even though we were under age! I recall driving around in the little red Jeep with a 4 banger in it thinking we could climb any hill. And yes, his smile....always accompanied him where ever he went. With God's grace and Greg's life-long love of his Lord and Savior may he rest in peace.
