  • Sherry and Family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Although it has been too many years since we have been in touch Sherry, it seems like yesterday, you met Greg and got married, so hard to believe it’s been 47 years.
    My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time.

  • To the Biggar Family: My condolences on Greg’s unfortunate early passing. I grew up with Greg in the teenage years and we were both involved in the same fraternity Greg was just a “straight up guy”. We used to go drinking in Niagara Falls at some of the sleezier lounges, some with strippers and some without. And there was a number of times after “a few” Greg would go on about his fragile temper. He blamed this on his Russian heritage. I don’t ever recall seeing this"temper"….except once. We were at one of these so called “sleezy lounges” on Lundy’s Lane. There was a musician playing a cheap organ and through every set he would play and sing “Kansas City” by Wilbert Harrison. That night Greg had had enough and the Russian Heritage came to light. He stormed across the lounge floor and slammed a $50.00 dollar bill on the organ and very emphatically instructed the musician NOT to play “Kansas City” that night or any other night that he was drinking there! It hit home because ther was a great round of applause from the rest of the patrons. Good on ya Greg.
    It was a pleasure…..Bob Morrison
