I am a friend of Greg’s from his early days in San Francisco, and I was deeply saddened to hear about his passing. Greg and I met through Noah Feinstein in 2000, and we shared our Jewish heritage as well as a love of music. We jammed together on a few occasions.

I remember vividly turning to Greg to watch him open his envelope with no expectations of how he would react…
This is a picture of Greg winning the vascular resident of the year (pictured with Dr. Lee, vascular surgeon at Stanford giving him the award). He was so unbelieavably talented and this shows recognition of a portion of that talent from the Stanford vascular department. All of us at Stanford will miss Greg tremendously and will never forget everything he gave to us and all of the lives he has touched.
