LEOMINSTER -- Donald Gregory (Greg) Smith, 54, of Leominster, MA, died on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, after a courageous battle with cancer.

He was born in Franklin, NH on November 14, 1959 to Judith and Donald Smith. Greg was a graduate of Burlington High School and received a Bachelor's Degree from Bentley College in 1982.

Greg was a caring and loving father and delighted in attending his daughter, Emma's piano and dance recitals. He cherished time with his family and never missed one of the many Smith family summer vacation gatherings on Cape Cod or in Maine.

Always available to lend a helping hand, Greg was kind, hard working and a supportive friend with a big network of loyal buddies that would do anything for him.

An avid fan of the Red Sox, Patriots and Bruins, he also loved skiing and was his local golf league's champion and known for hitting the ball a mile!

Greg was a local builder of beautiful custom homes, where he developed an enviable reputation for the quality of his craftsmanship and careful attention to every detail. His clients loved him for the work he did and treated him like family. Greg also expressed his creativity through art, including photography and stained glass.
