    Greg was good friend and I will miss him dearly. His good nature and positive attitude made him a joy to be around. My prayers for his family...Farewell old friend.

    Sad news, indeed. I had only met Greg a few times but, I remember him as a role model for fair play, solid life goals,<br />and an eager acceptance of all from many walks of life. Wasn't musicians a part of his life? Anyway I remember this<br />and appreciated his support and advice when I was self-learning the clarinet. Those were good days and I am glad to have met Greg. I am sad that he has left and wish his family and friends all the best condolences possible. Roger.

    Greg was by far the most enthusiastic person I've ever had on the bandstand. A wonderful musician, soulful vocalist and frontman. For over 40 years he played music throughout AZ and the southwest, much of it with Danny Rhodes, Ramone Dana and Jim Hargis. A cross between James Brown and Bill Withers, he sang with such passion. Always a smile on his face and with the most giving nature, I will miss him....the community will miss him more. As a special ed teacher, he touched the lives of thousands....such a legacy to leave behind. My thoughts go out to Beth and the girls. A great loss.

  • Mark Woestehoff

    Greg was such a good person, great musician, loving husband and father. He reawakened my interest in music and had an infectious desire to create and bring out the best talents of others. God's grace to the family.

    I have lived her for over 30 years and Greg is one of the FEW who always had a smile and would chat with us. He's worked with all of my kids through out the years. One of our favorites in the school system. He was a great teacher, friend and role model.

    Mr.Aitken was a friend couch and fother figure to me. I miss him so much he was the one person i could talk to when i was having a bad day. You could tell him anything. He was one of those people who made you laugh when you where sad. Or picked you up when you where down. I will never forget the last thing he said to me "Stay Strong" He was my best friend and i will never forget him. R.I.P Mr.A
