Greg, you will be sorely missed.
Greg was my first friend at PNNL since the start and remained a good friend in the years since. Whether I genuinely needed something from him or just needed to get away from it all for a few minutes and chat, he was always there and never in a hurry to get rid of anyone. Some of my best memories at the lab involve Greg in some manner. I did not see him every day, but every day that I did was made noticeably better for it. I have never met anyone who did not like Greg. He was everyone’s friend, making this loss even more profound and deeply impactful. His absence will be felt and seen by everyone he worked with.
Outside of work, I spent a lot of time cycling with Greg over the years. When Greg was ready to ride his first century (100 miles), he asked me to go with him. We spent a lot of time repairing flats but we did eventually make it and went on many more long rides together.
On another occasion, Greg found out that his hometown of Quincy was putting on its first Grant County Century ride and he was excited about that! Both of us went to participate in the hot desert heat amongst just a few other riders. He had a lot of fun telling me about all the places we rode by and I loved listening to it.
Similarly, we went on a few CF charity rides together, an unforgettable century in the mountains around Leavenworth, and one long 140 mile ride in Franklin County. We shared many interests. Greg’s always upbeat attitude (“It’s all good!”) inspired me to do better myself.
Thank you, Greg. I will miss you dearly.

I want to write these down so I have a written record to always look back on, and don’t let my thoughts and memories of Greg fade over time. He was one of a kind and I want to remember him for as long as I can.

Greg was my first friend at PNNL. I started in 2014, came in fresh out of graduate school. Our group was in the Math building then. Though Greg’s office was situated right across my cubicle, he sat behind a door that required prox access. So, the occupants of the room continued to be a mystery to me, until one day when we were introduced by a colleague for some project-related work. This was the start of my friendship with Greg.

Greg’s warm and welcoming personality meant I found myself knocking on his door very often for more than just project-related work. With his trademark style and energy, he would always greet me with “oh, this guy again!”, or “what do you want this time?!” or when I ask him for computer help, he would more often than not respond with a “you’re killin’ me, Sid”. In my first few months at PNNL, I was not in the best mental space. The conversations with Greg were a welcome distraction and his positivity always rubbed off on me. Over time, I learnt about challenges he was facing on the personal front. I was amazed at his positive outlook on life despite these trying circumstances. My admiration for him grew further. I also got to know about how Greg cared for his son, Hunter. His commitment and diligence as a dad remains an inspiration. On occasions when I’ve felt lazy to engage my daughter, this knowledge has served as a nudge to get off my backside.

Greg introduced me to biking. He showed me there isn’t a thing as bad biking weather, but only bad gear. He taught me how to change a flat, what I need to carry on a ride, introduced me to great trails around the tri-cities, and an active lifestyle that has had many positive impacts on my life. In turn, I have tried to pass these learnings on to friends and family. So, Greg’s positive influence certainly has and will continue to spread and impact people outside his sphere of influence. I am sure he has had a positive impact on anyone who has had the good fortune to get to know him. Although painfully short, I consider this as an example of a life well-lived.

I will miss riding with Greg on the annual ride for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I have many fond memories from our post-ride conversations. One distinct memory is from 2017 when we decided to cut short our ride from 65 to 45 miles, in a bid to get to the post-ride beer quickly. I remember the beer being great, particularly when it was paired with Bob Marley blaring in the speakers. But, what made the day truly memorable was Greg’s company and the conversations after the ride.

I would like to close with one other memory. In my first couple of months in Richland, Greg took me on a bike ride to show me some of the trails around the Columbia river. It was an extremely windy day and I was completely under-prepared for the ride, both in terms of warm clothing and food. Half way through the ride, when he realized I was struggling, without hesitation, Greg gave me his jacket and food. That was just the kind of guys he was. I will miss him dearly.
