James Gregory Robertson Obituary

J. Greg Robertson, now at peace, died Saturday, June 4. Born in 1942, in Butte, Montana, Greg lived a life rich in love, adventure, music and words. A journalist for 20 years, beginning in Arizona and including Travel Editor (1980s) and Rock Critic (1970s) at The Hartford Courant, Greg was a writer in heart and soul. Greg was a community activist working against gangs and drug dealers in Frog Hollow, Hartford and was lovingly known as "Mr. Greg" to the neighborhood children. He proudly served the community in an official capacity as the Chief of Staff for Mayor Carrie Saxon Perry. Tragedy struck in 2007 when a home invasion and miscarriage of justice landed our dear Greg in prison. He spent his final days in longed-for freedom, surrounded by tenderness, music and love. His beloved daughter, grandchildren, brother, and extended family and friends grieve his passing. A memorial will be held on Saturday, June 11 in CT. Call (520)233-1149 for more information. In lieu of flowers, please donate to www.wcs.org. "Well, it shines so bright and it gives so much light . . . And lights my life with love." Brand New Day, Van Morrison.
