Greg was a college friend and shared an apartment with me during my first year of law school. He's someone who just radiated fullness of life, and it's so hard to imagine him gone. I hadn't seen Greg in a long time, but I'd been enjoying the pictures he posted on Facebook and delighting in his obvious joy at family life. Greg was a couple of years ahead of me in law school and encouraged me to intern with Judge Rose Spector, where he had his first job out of law school. I followed in Greg's footsteps and eventually worked for Judge Spector as well--it was a great experience and led to wonderful and life-changing opportunities for me. So I consider Greg to have had a very positive influence on my legal career. What a sad thing it is to lose Greg so young. While there is nothing to say to make this any better for you, please know that you are not alone in your grief.

My prayers and condolences are with Greg's family at this terrible time. Greg was a great friend, colleague, softball teammate and fantasy football adversary. I will miss him.

I was lucky to see Greg and Melissa a couple times in recent years when visiting Singapore. The Greg I saw then is the same one I remember from long ago at Sid, and it's the same one I see in the photos and stories posted here. It's the big smile, the uncanny ability to be a friend to everyone, the enthusiasm about politics, sports, music and most other subjects. I think he was always having fun, no matter what he was doing. Greg, you will be missed. Melissa and Benjamin, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

I recently met Greg by phone for work, who took the time to tell me about life as an expat in Singapore. During the conversation, we laughed at the coincidence of each having a son who is nearly 2. Greg's kindness and love and devotion for his family were quite apparent, and I extend my sincerest condolences.

Greg was one of the first people I met upon arriving at Rice -- he was my O-Week advisor. Actually, come to think of it, he had written me during the summer before I even arrived, so Greg was really one of the first people to help shape my Rice experience. That was lucky for me! Greg's warmth and fun spirit really helped ease my transition to college -- an experience that was otherwise a bit overwhelming for me. I know that my time at Rice was really enhanced by having Greg there to help me make that transition. I will always remember him very fondly.

My deepest sympathies and my prayers for Greg's family. He was an amazing man. I loved his smile and always told him he had the best smile! He would brighten my day just with his smile. Love you, Greg, and I will miss you and your smile. Keep smiling....

With deepest condolences for your profound loss. I was just getting to know Greg as he was about to embark in a new role as head of EMEA Legal, and already, I was touched by how warm and thoughtful he was. My prayers are with you at this very difficult time.

It is so melancholy warm with mixed feelings seeing the slideshow in this web....Greg's happpy face, laughters and voice still so close and yet so far. His warm character has touched a lot of us in the office, especially when he worked here in HK for a while. These days people kept coming by to show their concern to Greg as we had all been working close with him together. He used to appear in the right moment in IM at the office when I got pulled down by work at times. He would comfort, tease and make me laugh again. All my worries and upset would have gone when he gave a LOL or a Cry! Such a sad thing not having said goodbye to him, but I am sure he is great with God in His presence - protecting and guiding Melissa and Ben all along! Take good care Melissa and Ben. We love you and Greg.

Greg, you are a mensch. Like so many others, I will miss you so much. Thank you for teaching me what that means, and for making me a better person. Rest in peace my friend.

What a tragic loss. He brightened so many moments of so many lives and will be MUCH missed. Prayers and love to Benjamin, Melissa, Jessica, and the rest of the family.

My memories of Greg are mostly from Rice, and are fuzzy, but a few images stand out - his ear to ear smile, infectious laugh, and intense late night philosophical discussions about who knows what. It's obvious that time did not change him. My heartfelt condolences to Melissa and Greg's family. May his memory be a blessing.

I was friend with Greg in high school and am so sorry to learn he has passed. In addition to classes, we really got to know each other when we were the only freshmen to join the Whitman speech team. While our preference was to get the older students to play Springsteen as we rode in back seats to tournaments, I weirdly associate Greg with Michael Jackson, because the pom pom squad was rehearsing a routine to Beat It in the parking lot outside the classroom where we were practicing speeches. Like others I enjoyed reconnecting on FB and am so sad that his son won't know him as we did.

Yesterday I learned of the extremely said news that one of my Rice friends Gregory H. Kahn passed away unexpectedly. Greg was one of those people you could not help but love. He had a huge heart, an infectious laugh, a wicked sense of humor and was super smart. While I hadn't been in touch with him for years, reconnecting on FB showed me he hadn't changed and I loved following his posts and appreciated his sense of humor even more. I am heart broken for his wife Melissa, young son Ben and the rest of his friends and family.

My deepest sympathy to Greg's Dad and Aunt, to Melissa and Benjamin, to his worldwide friends, co-workers and other relatives and to my friend, Greg's sister, Jess.  What a wonderful tribute this web site is to Greg; how much I learned about Greg through your stories and posts and pictures.  What a mark he left in this world, what sadness in his passing and what joy you all found in relationship with him.

So very sorry to hear about Gregory H. Kahn. We worked together at MCI and Verizon. He always had a smile to share. Smart, hard working and a genuinely good person, he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Melissa, Ben and his family and friends.

This is dedicated to Greg Kahn. When I was a frosh he asked "Hey Greek, you like Chinese?" and took me to the Chinese Cafe where I ordered double spicy beef. Thanks Greg. You are the man.

Melissa and Ben, While I have yet to meet you both I know that you brought great joy into the life of the most fun-loving person I knew at Rice. My deepest sympathy to you and Greg's family. He will be missed by so many. With love and aloha, Wendy
