Thank you, Mark, for letting us know this most sad news. Gregg had such a great voice, and was simply such a nice man.

I'm quite shocked about this - he wasn't that old, was he?
Here is a link to the post on sffaudio mentioned above:

How sad!

I added his death year to his catalog page: https://catalog.librivox.org/people_public.php?peopleid=3490 as we've done for others.

I couldn't find his birth year anywhere.

Shocking news! My sympathies to his family and loved ones. His voice will live on in the many recordings he made at LibriVox!
