I am sorry to hear this. I am relatively new to INat but found his interview helpful as orientation. He obviously made a great contribution! My condolences to his family and friends.

Really terrible news. Greg was a great help on many of my moth and bird ID’s, he’ll definitely be missed on iNat. . Rest in peace.

I first came across Greg on Odonata Central where he constantly helped me with Damselfly identifications, then on iNaturalist where again he was always a source to me for identifications. Almost got to meet him a couple of years ago, but someone he knew showed up from Turkey so he canceled and I wasn't in his area thereafter. I will miss him for a while, but one day we will meet and I know we will have a joyous time.

As Annika has said, Greg is the reason the Texas iNat community is what it is today. He certainly encouraged and helped me in my early iNat days and is one of the reasons I am the iNat addict I am today. We will all miss him. He was a great man.

Really sad to hear about this. He was a great contributor to the community and was part of the reason I decided to stick around early on in my "iNaturalist career". He definitely will be missed.

I was following him on INaturalist. What an interesting life he led according to his profile. Sounds like he had a grand time here on earth.

oh man that’s grim news. The man was a unique, unbelievably knowledgeable and helpful contributor to this platform. I hope we all take time to remember him this year when we’re out and about in the field, and post a dragonfly or bird or two in his honor

Greg's contributions to iNat have been considerable and they will live on. He asked me some weeks ago to add a note to his personal profile on iNaturalist; I'll be adding an appropriate memorial note there in a few days.

I first met Greg in the birding world maybe 30 years ago, and was so impressed with his passion and attention to detail. More recently he helped me with ID issues with Odonata and moths, and encouraged me to document a new county record of a dragonfly on Odonata Central. His passing is such an incredible loss to the naturalist community. RIP Greg...we'll miss you.

I never met Greg but he emailed me a few times and welcomed me to iNaturalist in 2017.

He helped me with many dragonflies and birds.
His beautiful photos, energy, wonderful knowledge and input to the iNat’ community will be such a loss.
He has left a wonderful footprint for us to follow.
Prayers to his family and many friends.

I know he has many other good things he has done outside this site.
Many things a few of us probably do not know of.
For myself, this is how I know of him, iNaturalist.

I am going to imagine Greg, sitting in a field full of beautiful flowers, surrounded by colorful dragonflies and birds ,though he was so good with many other animals as well.
This is how I will remember him.

Rest in Peace.
