I was very sad to hear about Gregg Wood's passing.  I had the opportunity to catch up on old times with him at the 50th reunion.  He worked the room that night trying to say hello to as many of our classmates as he could.  I enjoyed competing with and against him during our track days at PVHS.   Although, his personality was mild mannered and somewhat reserved.  Greg was a fierce competitor and represented our high school at an elite level.  We have lost some great classmates over the past few years but he was one of the nicest guys you would ever want to meet.  Greg also served our country admirably as a highly decorated Naval Pilot during the Viet Nam War.  He was a special guy.   It was truly an honor to know him.

From  one old carrier mate to another, May your Time in the great beyond be all 3 wires. It was an HONOR to know you.





Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I’ve found that peace at the end of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life’s been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’ touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

Hard to believe Greg has left us, he was in great spirits at the 50th reunion and seem to be in great health. A great guy  growing up together in Hillsdale. We were on the same Little League Team together, both of us made the All Star Team and contiued our friendship in High School. Always polite and friendly and always considerate of others around him. I thank him for serving our Country as many of us in our class did, especially during an unpopular time. May he rest in peace, and may God be with his family and friends. We are all better for knowing Greg.

Greg and I go back to 1955 when we both entered the 3rd grade at St John the Baptist Grammar School. Along with Bill Laakso, John Warren, Matt Ciaccio and a few others we were the 1st graduation class and ultimately went to PV. We became good friends, not hard to do with someone like Greg..always upbeat and genuine. Along with Bill Laakso, we celebrated our birthdays, May 28 Greg, May 29 Bill and May 30 mine. I had seen Greg  a couple of times over the last few years. A proud Vet, an athlete and a friend who loved to play golf with life time aquaintances...Rest In Peace Greg...another good man gone.

Dittos Joe DeSilva. Was a classmate and friend of Greg's from 5th grade at St. John's in Hillsdale through high school. Grew up on Large Avenue about 2 blocks from Greg, George Truuppi and Bob Wayne. A great guy, great athlete, and true American hero. I'm sure this fly-boy has earned his second set of wings. He will be missed. See you on the other side Greg!

There are some people from high school with whom you may not have shared many personal experiences, but when you hear their name, your recollection is one of feelings.  When I read that Greg had passed, my immediate reaction was, "He was such a great guy; so down to earth and kind."  We were in a couple of classes together and shared a few conversations and laughs, but that was it.  From those exchanges, he left such a positive memory.  What more can you ask that just the sound of someone's name evokes such a positive feeling.  Rest in peace, Greg.

I was also in the first graduating class of St. John the Baptist with Greg and remember him from our days there.  Sorry to hear of his passing.
