A 45 year career running a family company in the Medical / Surgical Supply business was very rewarding. The company was national and afforded lots of travel to many Canadian destinations over the years as well as the opportunity to meet many interesting characters. Eventually immigrating back north again to Collingwood in the late 2000’s, Greg counts skiing in the winter and biking – both pedal and motor – in the summer as his current interests.
