"It was a difficult time for my dad in a lot of respects," Dominic said. "But he loves Syracuse. He loves the people, the relationships he made, the beauty of the area. He called it the hidden gem of the United States. That was one of his favorite lines."


It was a love that was evident both during his tenure and afterward.

During his time in Syracuse, Greg’s wife, Laura, volunteered in the soup kitchen each week at St. Lucy’s Church on Gifford Street.
