Our deepest sympathy to Meredith, Jackie and families. Dease (as he was known by all) was always laughing, smiling and had a joke to share. He was always the life of the party and we all enjoyed his company. He is now at a card game somewhere on high. Thinking of you at this time. James and Shelley Bodge

Our sincerest sympathy to all of the Dease family. One of our favourite memories was the fact that our girls were always amazed at how many people Greg knew in Yarmouth! Whenever they were with him, he'd be waving and saying Hi to practically all that he encountered! A very friendly and good hearted guy. RIP brother-in-law.
