Greg was a certified E.M.T., volunteered with The Latham Fire Dept. and most recently was employed by Market Bistro in Latham. He was an all around handyman who could fix just about anything.

Luther; his sister, Aimee Luther Richardson; his niece, Grace Richardson; his nephews, Benjamin Richardson and Ryan Richardson; his long-time girlfriend, Shari A. Hempstead and her children, Brittany (Patrick) Wallace, Justin McBain and Marisa Hempstead; and her six grandchildren. He is also survived by several aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends.
