Greg or "Pop Pop" as he was affectionately known by his grandkids, was born May 10th, 1947 to Norman Bishop and Florence Post Bishop in Binghamton, NY.

He spent a vast majority of his career working at Vassar Brothers Hospital. While he was trained as a respiratory therapist, he began his career as an orderly eventually working his way up to Vice President of Professional Services. He was an avid golfer and played up until the last year of his life. In addition to his wife, he is survived by: his son Todd and his wife Laura of Saratoga Springs, NY; his son Matthew and his wife Carly of North Haven, CT; the pride and joy of his later years, his two grandsons Henry Carl and Hudson Gregory, with a third grandson on the way.
