Gregory was a Certified Public Accountant. He worked as a Tax Accountant for Goldman Sachs in Latham up until his passing. He was an avid Villanova Wildcats, NY Yankees and NY Giants fan and loved his annual family and friends tailgating trip to a NY Giants game. He enjoyed coaching his boys, Conor and Ronan's sports teams when they were younger and in recent years. His favorite thing to do was to watch his boys play the sports they love. He loved spending time with his family especially his two boys. They were, and forever will be, his pride and joy.
