  1. Greg was my first best friend. We grew up on Vincent st. in Findlay in the early to mid-seventies.
    Greg and I collected G.I.Joes, worshiped Joe Nameth and the NY Jets. I’m glad to see his sense of adventure never waned.
    He was the first to say “Let’s see what happens” He could climb rafters, jump ramps, drive our sisters (Shelly and Wendy) nuts like no other.
    Greg was there for me when I broke my arm and more importantly when Susan Mulligan broke my heart.
    We were just a couple of ten year olds kicking around the suburbs of the ’70s.
    We lost contact shortly after I move to N.C. in 1976 but I’ll never forget my first best friend Gregory “Joe Nameth” Hammer.
    My sympathies to his family and friends.
