    Dear Steve and Susan, I am so sorry for your loss. I want to express my sincere and deepest condolences to you and your extended family. This is a tragedy felt deeply by myself and many of Greg's teammates I've spoken with in the last day or so. I can't imagine your pain, nor do I really have the words to express coherently any message that may be of comfort to you. I hope the memories of Greg I'm going to write about help you in some way.
    
    Greg was a wonderful young man when I met him in grade 9. I'll never forget his polite, respectful helpful ways and mannerisms as a student. But, he made an even bigger impact on my coaching life when he tried out for, and made the Sr. Boys basketball team. I know he was very proud of that and he should've been, it was a major achievement and testament to his extreme hard work and desire to be a valuable member of the program. He was a pleasure to coach, eager to learn and more importantly he dedicated himself to improving in every practice and every day. I was happy that he played at least some minutes in every single game in 2014/15 and in our 5 games at OFSSA. I'm very pleased and honored to have known Greg, and though I have not seen him since I retired ,he has left a positive mark in my life and will not be forgotten.

    I had the pleasure of playing basketball with Greg for one year when he was in grade 9 and I was in grade 12. I remember Greg being one of the hardest workers on the team that ended up winning Lossa and competing at Ofssa. Greg was a pleasure to be around on and off the court; pleasantly polite and positive. Condolences to Greg’s family and friends from the 2015 clarington boys basketball team.

    Greg was a teammate of mine at CCSS and also a great friend. Shared so many great memories on and off the court with Greg that I will never forget, had the honour of playing two great amazing seasons with him one winning LOSSA and the second year watching him grow into an even better player! I remember the first time meeting Greg he was so friendly, talkative, happy, always smiling, and just excited to play basketball. Right away, I knew he was going to blend in great with our team. I remember my first year of playing basketball in College, Greg would always text me just to say hi, see how I was doing,  how I liked it, and what he should choose Track or Basketball and it just shows you how genuine he was and I loved him like a little brother!
    
     He always worked so hard, and to this day I will never forget one of our playoff games against St Stephens, he came into the game and hit 3 big threes in a row to help us win the game and advance!! All the boys on the team showed him love like he always did for us, and I remember the smile on his face and he deserved it and we were all so proud! 
    
    Greg's family was amazing as well, his mom came to so many games and brought his younger sisters who were so sweet and huge supporters for our team! 
    
    My Condolences to Greg's family, I am lost for words and I couldn't even imagine the pain your family is going through.

    Dear Susan,
    Pain is a private experience at a time when we most need the comfort of others. My heart is broken and I cherish the memories of Greg and Glenn’s friendship in their early years. Greg was the brother Glenn never had and I can summon the sound of their laughter during many toddler adventures. Words of comfort escape me and I am grateful your faith is strong enough to carry through your grief. Stay safe in the Lord’s protection.

    Greg and I were teammates in high school on the basketball team as well as fellow employees at joeys world. Although Greg was a few years younger he fit in with the basketball team very well. You could tell with Greg he was raised right. Very polite and intelligent young man and you could tell that he put 100% effort in everything he was passionate about. 
    
    I remember we were both done our shift at joeys world one day but Greg’s mom wasn’t going to be able to pick him up for an hour so I drove him to my house so we could wait for his mom there. We did nothing but talk for an hour about basketball and just life in general but I remember how engaging and funny he truly was. Before you knew it his mom was at my house ready to pick him up, 1 hour felt like 5 minutes because of how much fun it was just to talk to Greg. 
    
    Rest In Peace Greg

    I had the pleasure of getting to know Greg in our one year at Hobbs together and two years at CCSS. Greg always stopped in the halls to talk and catch up, he was always happy and smiling and enjoyable to be around.  Greg always could make me smile and laugh on a bad day, he was truly a great guy.  Greg will be missed by many and my deepest condolences go out to his family.

    I grew up with Greg, from Hampton Junior, MJ Hobbs, to CCSS. While he was a year younger than me, I have lots of memories with him from middle school from the times we hung out in groups or spoke to each other in the halls. He was an energetic, kind, and funny guy. I remember watching the CCSS basketball team and he was a good player as well.
    
    My thoughts are with his family, and friends as they go through this difficult time. He was an amazing guy.

    Susan, Steve, Melanie & Kate - - we're thinking of you as you deal with losing Greg.  This will be one of the hardest things you'll face during your lifetime, but the happy times you've enjoyed with Greg will be in your hearts forever.  He had very bright eyes which gave him the ability to see the bright things such as your love for him.  He knew that he was loved and that's the most wonderful thing you could give him.  As you go from day to day, remember those bright eyes and that bright face and it will remind you of his radiant and cheery soul.  We are thinking of you and praying for God to send you peace and strength.  You will have lots of love and support from family and friends.  We all go forward and we'll carry Greg's memory with us.  God bless all of you.  Jane and Ashton

    To the McMaster family: I am so sorry for your loss.I can't say I knew Greg but just from his picture, I can tell he was a very fine young man. I also lost a son Sean unexpectedly at just 21 years old in 2018. Sean also left two sisters behind. As time moves forward, the pain is still there but the cherished memories grow even more precious with time. I am consoled by the fact these two fine young men are in a much better place just waiting for us to share in their joy in Heaven. May the Peace of God which is beyond all understanding be with Greg's family and friends.
