Greg loved reading books and watching television. Greg lived with and cared for his mother for her last three years of life. They had a fabulous relationship, full of love for each other. Anyone who met Greg found him to be very friendly and nice.
Comments from loved ones include: “He was the kind of friend I could share anything with without judgement. “Woody” was a great friend and will be sorely missed. I always liked Woody. I will always remember his sense of humor. He brought joy to everyone who knew him…a loving, fascinating, interesting guy.”
He is survived by his two sons and two daughters: Tobias (Sara, Amabel and Una) of Portland OR; Jennica Sherwood (Granddaughter Juliette) of Seattle WA; Nathaniel Sherwood of Seattle WA; and Nicole Jeffries of Desert Palms, CA.
