Lonchor. Greg is survived by his mother, Sandra (Gaggiani) Lonchor and siblings Jeffrey (Susan) Lonchor, Christine Lonchor, Gina Benoit, Beth Ann (Scott) Siskind, and Jaci Lonchor. Lifelong friend and loving companion to Mary Saltsman and her daughters Megan (Nic) Carucci and Sarah.

A celebration of life honoring Greg will be held at St. John of the Cross (formerly, St. Felicitas) Catholic Church in Euclid, Ohio, on Saturday, September 30th, 2017 at 11:00am.

The family suggests contributions be made to one of the following in memory of Greg: St. Jude; Lake Humane Society; Hospice of the Western Reserve.
