Born on a scenic mountain in Kouvela, Messinias Greece on March 15th 1930, Gregory took his last breath and slipped away quietly at 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday March 29th in the presence of his beloved children and devoted sister. Gregory had a dream of his wife several days before his passing. She told him that their children were fine, and that it was time for him to be with her. When he awakened from his dream Gregory had a strong desire to smell the incense his wife had burned often in their home. Gregory asked his son to bring him the incense so that he could smell its aroma again. He did and later that day he fell ill. His last wish to his children was 'Bring me Greece and my youth.' He had a powerful passion for his home country and the music of the clarinet, and the old folk songs the instrument played. He is there on his mountain, the old man and the clarinet, the music in the distance, and he stands hand in hand with his beloved 'Kalli' smiling upon him and admiring his handsome young face.
