Gone but never forgotten
This Foundation was his Dream
It lives on in his Memory
Gregg started his travels to the Dominican Republic in 2001 when he and his wife, Giselle, visited Puerto Plata for a two week stay. They quickly fell in love with the country and its children, and continued returning each year. He did not realize at that time that this would be the start of a dream to help the underprivileged children of the Dominican Republic. Eventually, he became involved as a member and Director of Beyond the Beach Childrens Foundation, along with several other dedicated people who shared this dream. Over the years his passion to help these children led him to be involved in several local charities such as Mustard Seed, Dream Project and Sosua Kids on the North Coast through the Foundation. He eventually furthered that dream to the East Coast in the Punta Cana area.
Gregg was also involved in the annual Dominican Fiesta which began 2004 in Blenheim, Ontario and was fortunate to attend each year until his untimely death in 2010. Gregg will always be remembered as the guy who brought over 200 jerseys for the childrens ball teams in Punta Cana. In essence, Greggs dream was to see the less fortunate children have a true smile on their faces and to bring a little joy to their life.
