What a great guy. Many fond memories, including being baptized into Christ. We entered Harding together. I've been trying to reconnect for years. Sorry to make such a late connection. Blessings and love to Michelle.

My condolences to Michelle and the family. It's been a long time since high school. Greg was a great friend in those days and I'm sure he always was to those around him.

My dad, Bob Selle, and Greg were the best of friends for many years. Dad and Greg shared the love of horses and rode together many times over the years. Dad treasured Greg's friendship and thought the world of him and Mickey. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Greg's family.

Greg was a fine friend and fellow when schoolboys, a man with a vision for his life. I am so happy for Mickey and their family because, though in grief, they now share his legacy of love and of moral commitment. May Greg rest in Peace, and Light Perpetual shine upon him. - Bishop Joel Marcus Johnson, Chesapeake, Ret'd.

I am sorry to hear of your loss of Greg! I knew him as an outstanding colleague, officer and Detective in White Bear Lake! Greg Was always direct and truthful, courageous, generous, able to make his point to all ages, and especially to reach out to young people and encourage them to always act within the law. May happy memories of your times with Greg and the love of family and friends and your faith bring you consolation at this time of loss! You and Greg are in my thoughts and prayers. May he rest in peace! Mary L. Bosscher.. of St. Pius Church and White Bear Lake Emergency Food Shelf

I first met Greg and his wife Mickie through our friend's Bill and Lynda Counihan when we were invited to join them on a trip to Ixtapa. They were truly such an awesome couple, and we had so much fun together. When they moved away, we lost touch with them. Greg was a spirited and funny guy, and always had a smile on his face. So John and I want to wish Mickie and family our deepest condolences, and I know him and Bill are reconnected and laughing together again. Thanks for the memories Greg.
