I graduated with Greg from St Alphonsus grade school in Lakeview in 1951. In later years we saw each other a few times up in Lilly Lake, Wis where our families both had cottages.
Although many decades have gone by, I still remember Greg as a gentle, well mannered friend and school chum. My wife, Mary (Kroth) St Als class of ‘53 brought Greg’s obit to my attention, thereby renewing some of those wonderful memories when our world seemed so much simpler and we looked to our futures full of confidence, enthusiasm, and hope.
Reading Greg’s obit sort of closed the “loop” for me, and verified my younger expectations that Greg would lead a good, long life with a wonderful family to support his establishing a fine legacy for you all.
So many times in ones life we have thoughts of our fellow graduates and youthful friends and wonder what ever happened to them. I appreciate being able to know how Greg’s life unfolded, and am pleased that he did well and is now enjoying eternity with our Lord.
Thank you for sharing Greg’s important life story.
With best wishes to your family, and may God continue to bless you.
