I believe that Greg was a friend of mine during childhood and early adolescence. My father knew his father in medical school and I knew that Greg had intended to be a dentist and went to Marquette, as I did my first year of college in 1962-3. We got together occasionally in Plymouth where I lived with my parents and brothers. I am sorry for his death--he died much too young. I happened on this obit while I was browsing the internet. Rest in Peace.

Dear Linda, just heard the terrible news. We are heartbroken. Greg was one of the sweetest kindest human beings we were ever privileged to know. He was always interested to hear about us and our family and always told stories about your family. The empathy he always showed to me with all my health problems often brought me to tears after leaving his office. I hope he didn't suffer to much. Anything we can do don't hesitate to call.

Vern & Robin Schmitt left a message on May 2, 2013:
We were very saddened to hear of Greg's passing. He was truly a wonderful man and dentist. It warmed our hearts to read the comments from others who feel exactly like we do. He touched so many people over the years. As others have said, it was like going to see a friend. Who just happened to be a great dentist. We'll miss the conversations. We'll miss the laughs we shared. We'll miss sitting in his chair looking out the window to see the Fox river. But most of all we will deeply miss him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I went to high school with Greg and my family and I were patients of his for over 30 years. He was always so caring and willing to help with our dental care. I will miss him.
Cynthia Finke left a message on May 2, 2013:
My smpathy goes out to you Linda and your family. My memories of Greg are of some 30 years of his care of our family. I had many emergencies that he always got me in usually on his lunch hour. He was the way I kept up with all the Wrightstown news, we always had a big dicussion on that. And he always asked about the rest of my family as to how they were and what they were doing. I always will remember he had a great way of freezing my teeth, you never felt the needle. Thanks to all of you for sharing him with us. Cynthia Finke

Greg was a role model for me as I grew up. His friendship with my parents was admirable and taught me the value of long term relationships. He was taken from us way too early. He's is a better place. Let's celebrate his life as we mourn his death.

Bill and Sue Van Eeckhout left a message on May 2, 2013:
It was indeed a very big shock to learn about "Doc". We both have been his patients since he first bought the dental practice from Dr. Salvia. "Doc" as I always called him was a very gracious, kind and one heck of a good man. We traded many stories over the years and his love of going to the auto races and his sports car. He will be truly missed!!!!!! He is irreplaceable!!!!! God bless you Doc and until we meet again. Bill and Sue Van Eeckhout Menasha, WI

To Dr. Russo's family- Please accept my deepest sympathy. Going to the dentist with Dr. Russo was not like going to the dentist - it was like going to see a dear friend, who could take care of your teeth while we caught up on the latest developments in our lives. He must have been a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and son. He was just SO caring and pleasant. I hope you will find comfort in remembering all the good times and how blessed you all were to have him. I know I felt blessed to have found such a wonderful dentist and friend. Again, my deepest sympathy to all of you. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days ahead. Mary Ehnerd Patient

I moved to Appleton in late 1984 and Dr. Greg was always very supportive of our practice as a specialty practice in dentistry. It was always a pleasure to see Greg's referrals and it was very gratifying working with Greg's office. Greg will be sorely missed in the dental community! - Christopher J. Glapa DDS
