I'm sorry to hear of Greg's passing. I've lived in the same building with him since 2017 and it was always wonderful to see him.

My sincere condolences over the death of Greg. He was a great teacher and a committed faculty member at SFB! I always admired how he never wavered in his political views. Greg and family are in my prayers.

We were often on different sides of the political spectrum when we started at SFB, but I'm proud to say we respected those differences and our commitment to education. I got 'em in first grade, you put the finishing touches on in eighth grade. Peace and rest to you, my friend.

Mr. White was my 8th Grade homeroom teacher and one of my favorite teachers of all time. He was not only a great teacher but he was very supportive during my parents divorce and hysterically funny. I had some of the best times at St. Francis Borgia and Mr. White was a huge part of it. Thank you so much for being in my corner Mr. White. You get the MVP award. May you rest in peace.

My 3 children were your students and they fondly remember those years in your classroom. You were such a profound inspiration to all the students you taught at St Francis Borgia. Thank you Mr. White you will be truly missed.

We thank you for your guidance and direction of our children throughout the years. You were the best, & perhaps most importantly, all of your students thought so too, you certainly were respected & loved. Rest In Peace Mr. White.

Mr. White (our favorite teacher) and Greg (our wise and witty friend) - with his quick wit and fantastic sense of humor he was truly a blast to be with. His cooking skills were top notch (like a chef) and he would make the best spreads for all of his get togethers. He was great friends with `Marti O´Shea´ (Johns late Aunt) and those two together were so much fun to be around. He left us way too early and will be missed by so many!!! We will miss you so much. God Bless You dear friend!!

Greg and I taught together many years ago at St. Francis Borgia. His quiet personality--and gentle sense of humor--we definitely an asset to the faculty. My sympathy and condolences to his family and friends.
