Greg Margolis ~ Rest in Power

Posted: May 26, 2015 in Uncategorized

Margolis, Gregory Allen

66 Mar. 12, 1949 May 09, 2015

Beloved father of Sam and Laurel; much-loved brother of Ken and Roger; favorite uncle of Jesse, Zak and Sara; and ex-husband of and co-parent with Barbara Blaize, Greg died peacefully the afternoon of May 9, 2015, in his home surrounded and cared for by loving family members. Recognized as an intellectual leader of the movement for social change, Greg’s greatest asset was his enormous heart. He is mourned not only by his family, but by the hundreds of friends he made in his volunteer work and the hundreds more whose lives benefited from that work. After his retirement as a paralegal in 2003, Greg became a full-time volunteer organizer, strategist, activist and spokesperson for a number of social justice groups including Right 2 Dream Too and Jobs With Justice, which awarded him the rare and prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. Greg always did what he felt was right; as a result, he left the world better than he found it. His life was cut short, but Greg lived life fully, a life of commitment, joy and love. He is desperately missed by the many who loved and learned from him.
