I loved watching Barney Miller and continue to watch reruns when I can. The entire cast complemented each other well. Terribly sorry to hear of Gregory's death. It may be comforting to know that God is close to the brokenhearted and He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Gregory lived well!

Greg was a great guy, believe it or not he used to play roller hockey with us in the 1980’s, at a skating rink in Port Hueneme. He was very humble and approachable, pretty good hockey player too!

Mr.Sierra was a great actor. I remember growing up in the late70's watching Sanford and Son. The episode where he had his goat and Fred Sanford freaked out and supposedly having his heart attack. I don't remember watching Barney Miller. Mr.Sierra was a very good actor and I'll keep on watching my favorite tv show. Or it's one of my favorites. Rest in peace Mr.Sierra You are an in heaven sir and you will be greatly missed and remembered

I considered him an excellent actor making it look simple as he showed his genius at whatever part he had, from the 1970's thru the 1980's he played different roles. Gregory has shown us how life is short eventually we all run out of time. It's what we do with that time that matters, he will be missed may God Bless Him! RIP.

May he rest in peace. Loved him in both shows, am remembering
now a favorite memory of how he and Lamont were always going to go eat "menudo" on Sanford and Son. He always played a good guy, like the best neighbor or friend you could have. He probably really was that. May God comfort his family and friends.
January 25, 2021
We remember him best from the cast of "Barney Miller". Every week that show had our family laughing and feeling happy. His talent and ability for comedy will forever be remembered. We send our sympathy to his family.
