From Jeff Barnett: Brief summary of my brother's life: Greg graduated from Ohio State in 1970 with an electrical engineering degree. He worked with electrical motors at three or four companies in Springfield, OH, Owasso, MI, and two periods in Minneapolis where he met his wife Pam. They married March, 1975. Sometime in the 1980s he began a new career in financial advising, and was very successful in doing so. They had two sons, Rob and Ed who are in their late twenties. Pam died in 1995 of brain cancer. Rob is up in Minneapolis with his wife and daughter who was born September, 2008. His son Ed is out in Rancho Mirage, CA living in Greg's house. Greg moved out there after his sons were out of school and on their own. Greg and I were estranged for 19 years until 2007. He and his son Ed visited us in Orlando last July, 2008. Our kids and grandkids are in Orlando so that is where we get together.) He looked great then after battling cirrhosis for two years. He was a very heavy drinker since the seventies. He almost had cirrhosis licked, but the bottle had too much of a grip on him. He died October 9, 2008. Photos of Greg are on Jeff's page.

UPDATE 7-18-11:  Greg's son Eddie died last month.

I was so sorry to read about Greg's passing but happy to know that the twins had reconciled their differences before his death. Kathy Stanley Bolton

I'm sorry to read about Greg's passing. He had some difficult years after graduating  from RRHS. He was an OK person.
