Yet another former co worker here... Yes Greg was a great and nice guy... he still is. Look at the times we are living in people... even a nice guy can do things that are out of character when the chips are down. I personally wish he had gotten away with it! Greg, I wish you the very best luck!

I worked with Greg at Toys R Us and he was a nice guy...He once old me the more you make the more you spend... Guess he wanted to spend what others were making... I hope his wife and kids are ok... not the best move he could have made trying to rob that bank..

Anyone know what was going on in his life to cause him to become so desperate?

I too would like to know what happened. Couldn't his family or friends help him? Or couldn't he turn to his church? It's a shame to see someone get that low that they turn to crime. Doesn't seem like he thought it out very well ... perhaps he wanted to get caught. I will pray for you Greg, and for your wife and kids. Guard your butt dude ...

We can all throw stones at Greg for what he has done but none of us are in his shoes. We don't know what drove him to do this. This is uncalled for for any reason but maybe at the time he was going through something that he felt at the time he had no other choice. Yes, alot of us can say we know him from work and yes I will agree that some of us thought he was not the perfect but at this time in his life we need to remember that he is a father and keep your heart open to those beautiful innocent children.

Greg was, until Monday, the assistant manager at CVS, not shift supervisor. I do not work at CVS i have a family member who works there so i meet him that way. As for what lead him to do this. I know he is the father of three ages 6, 4 and 22 months and he is separted from his wife and he had not seen his kids in months. His wife was keeping him from the kids and this weekend was to be the first time he got to see his kids in months and he was so excited but now he will not be seeing them this weekend and God only knows when if ever he will see them again. I am not sure his wifes name but i pray that she does not become bitter and while being honest with the kids is important try to keep her feelings out of how she deals with the situation and remember she has to do what is best for the children. My prayers go out to everyone involed in this situation.

Greg has seen his kids quite often. Including the day before he did this. His wife is not bitter. She has been trying to reconcile the entire year and still loves him dearly though he has treated her horrendously. He would not give up a long term affair and would not stop lying. He needs help and prayers right now.

Greg is a wonderful guy that unfortunately has not made the best decisions over the past couple years. This IS NOT his character as most of you are posting and know that. We love him and are going to do all we can to help him. His wife and children are precious and again unfortunatley Greg chose an extra-marital affair for the last couple years and shut himself off from everyone. He has gotten to see his kids.. as much as he desired to. His wife is wonderful and has tried to all she knows to do to reconcile. Pray for Greg, that he would turn his heart to the Lord in this time, repent for what was done and move on to do what is right from here out. We all experience hard times, some seem worse than others. But I stand by Greg no matter what because he is my family and I love him. I do not agree with his decisions, but I believe he will look back soon enough and not agree with the ones he made himself as well. Thank you all for your care and concern for Greg and his family, this is a really tough situation!

Greg needs God right now. He has hurt his children, wife and the two people he robbed, excuse me the whole team or branch. I dont care what one is going threw, do you really have to show a gun? Like I said, he needs God. God is the only person able to judge Greg.

I have known Greg and his wife for several years. Greg is a wonderful guy. He has never been mean spirited to anyone and always tried to be fair. Yes, he did his wife wrong by straying, but man his wife a case onto herself.

She was very manipulative and overbearing and he took it for years for his kids sake. Nothing was good enough for his wife.

She turned his family and all his friends against him. Their marriage was crap from the very beginning. She would always tell him she wanted a divorce no matter how hard he tried for her and his kids. She didn't work and would always call him at work telling him she couldn't handle staying home and taking care of their kids by herself even at the expense of losing his job. She didn't even tell him that she was pregnant with their last child until she was 5 months pregnant and expected him to be okay with that.

Him having an affair covered up all that she did to him and his family couldn't see past him having an affair b/c it was against God in their eyes. They believed his wife no matter what. He did not close himself off to his family. They would not see that he was unhappy and listen to their own blood. He was a grown man and told them that but they said he had to stay with a wife like that because of God and his kids. Good grief! She drove him insane obviously...
His wife was never trying to get back with him. She told his family that but it was crap.

She has been having a field day with all the attention of being a wounded, betrayed woman with 3 kids and telling our church about how bad she's been wronged. All she and her parents want is his money or what he did have. Hopefully his family will stick by him now and not listen to other people tell them how bad he was. He married the wrong woman period and her demands drove him over the edge.
Hopefully the people at church will stop being so judgemental towards him and look at their own marriage problems and stop listening to all the gossip. God bless.

I too know them. I'm glad someone's finally sticking up for Greg. He's had it rough at home for many years and tried to stick it out but it wasn't happening no matter how hard HE tried. His wife had everyone turned against him. My wife and I even thought bad of him for awhile and snubbed him from all the stuff she was spreading about him EVERYWHERE about him doing her wrong but then we remembered Greg and what he was really like and what we knew of him. He was a human being who made mistakes like everyone else does whether they HIDE behind God and claim to be christians or not. He was kind and cared about others more than most people. Too kind at times because he took more than he should have especially from his wife. He had been trying to get back with her but she kept wanting more money and expected him to be her dog again. That was the only way she'd take him back. Maybe if she and his family had given him a break things might have turned out different. The poor guy didn't have a chance.

Not sure who you are but you obviously do not know the entire situation so please remain quiet. His family has never turned against him as well as all the statements are false. Greg was the one as soon as his wife was pregnant calling his family to tell them . Check your facts before posting!! Better yet... keep silent your posting lies helps no one!
