Greg Walsh (1975-2017) – Memorial Celebration

It is with great sadness that Dickenson, Peatman & Fogarty announces the passing of our friend and managing partner, Greg Walsh.  Greg suffered a sudden cardiac arrest while playing in his weekly basketball game and did not recover. He was 42 years old.

There will be a memorial celebration on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 from 4pm – 6pm at Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate & Garden in the Grand Reserve Hall located at 5007 Fulton Road in Santa Rosa.

In lieu of flowers, Greg’s family requests donations be made in his honor to the “Declan Walsh Special Needs Trust.” Checks may be sent to DP&F, 1455 First Street, Suite 301, Napa, CA 94559, or credit card donations may be made by phone by calling DP&F at 707-252-7122.

Greg has been the heart and soul of our firm.  He made each of us, and each of his clients, feel important.  He made work more than work.  He made challenges easier to overcome.  Greg’s passing suddenly and far, far too early has left a tremendous vacancy in our hearts.  He was an incredible father, husband, son, brother, uncle, friend, music lover, sports fan, adventurer, memory-maker, mentor, colleague and lawyer.  He was one of the best.

    Greg was truly one of the very best in every way and a great lawyer with exceptional sound judgment. We at Larkmead will miss him in so many ways not the least of which as a friend. A tragic and great loss to all.

    Words of condolence seem as trite and innefective as a pea shooter. But I share in the sadness of Greg’s untimely death and the impact it will have on all around him. What more can be said, it is we who must find a way to pick up and carry on, knowing life will never be quite the same.

    He must have been a wonderful person. The moving words of farewell show that wonderful people have wonderful friends. My deepest sympathy for his family and friends.

    My dad was the most important person in the world to me and it means a great deal to us how many people loved him. He was unnecessarily enthusiastic in every single way. Thank you for your love and support through this troubled time. Hey Scott.
