Gregory enriched the lives of many in the San Francisco Area when he participated in the San Francisco Opera Merola Program. He had a beautiful and expressive voice.
Gregory Carroll also performed a recital with his beloved colleague Jane Eaglen for the Wagner Society of Northern California. We had an overflow crowd of 125 people at this very special event.
There are no words to convey the sense of loss that the music world is experiencing with Greg's passing.

I remember our talks after high school when you worked in the Hallmark store.

A friend and I were talking tonight about you. You remind us to do what makes us happy, live in the moment, and share our knowledge and happiness with others.

You are a talented soul, and you are missed, buddy.

I am so saddened to hear of Greg's passing. He had so much talent and so much to offer to so many. I have so many memories of him and my son Chris while they attended JFK The choir "upstairs " can't help but be improved with him there.
