  13. Hi my friend . I had to find out your passing by an IG story. Man, how I wish I didn’t see that . I can’t believe you’re gone . Actually, I had a random thought of you days ago, and how you helped me get that job at Subaru. Appreciate the good word. You were always supportive of me, and used to talk to me about growing and making myself better in the car biz. You said I was better than just a car salesman. That laugh I’ll miss of yours, when I made you crack up and also being at your home and the hospitality that was given . You were like my part time dad away from home, Greg. You sleep well my friend . I’ll never forget you . My deepest condolences to the whole family during these sad times . Rest in Paradise.

  14. Our sincerest condolences to all the Meyer family. Greg was special to us when he was a youngster at Pt. Connett in Mattapoisett. That handsome boy would show up at our door and ask if we would like to buy some of his lobsters and how many we would want. He’d add us to his list and go out to check his pots. That day or the next he would arrive back at our house with the requested number of lobsters and charge us $1.00 each!!! Of course, we always gave him a little extra! He was a great kid!

  15. I’m sad and shocked to hear this news. Greg was a close friend in high school and I regret not extending that friendship beyond those years. I have many good memories from our football years and even a couple of senior year skip days to Mattapoisett. My sincere sympathy to his family. Rest In Peace my friend…

  24. Kim and her family, I am so sorry to hear of Greg’s passing. Cancer is such a heartless disease as it has taken so many of our friends and family. I remember Greg so well at Point Connett. He certainly loved the water and fishing with his Dad. He will be so missed.

  25. Greg was our insurance rep for many years at Crest Lincoln. I always loved seeing him come into the dealership. (I can still hear his laugh) He had such a great sense of humor and really loved people.
    I know he will be missed by so many.

    My deepest condolences to your family.

  26. Condolences to Greg’s family for your loss. Greg was a classmate and teamate starting in elementary school right through high school. Growing up all the family cars were bought from his dad’s dealership. Yes, it was a small town.

    Greg’s personality seemed to grow along with him. High school was a springboard for him to bigger and better things.

    Ironically the last time I saw him was a few years ago at the high school Super Bowls at Gillette. It was good to see him and his personality was bigger than ever. I’m sure he will be holding court in Heaven.

  27. This is awful news.
    I am just so sorry.
    Sending my love to your beautiful
    family.
