He worked for several years in Real Estate but continued to fuel his passion for the restaurant industry which was sparked when he started as a busboy at Anthony’s Pier 1 while in college. Greg was an experienced Restauranteur in every aspect of the word. He was at home behind the bar, or interacting with customers at so many of the local restaurants on the North Shore and in particular Romies, Café Escadrille, Hunter’s Inn, the Hilltop steakhouse, and Lewis’ Restaurant. Eventually he invested in Jack Rabbit Flats and opened his own charming restaurant, Myopia Café in Hamilton, Ma. He was well loved and respected in his field. Greg never completely retired, he continued to work part time at the "99" in Salem, Ma right up to the last day of his life. Greg was an avid reader, enjoyed a variety of sports, and would never pass up game of golf or racquetball. Greg was devoted to spending time with his son going to the movies and cheering for all the Boston sports teams. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
