I didnít realize he retired because of a heart condition.

Very sad to see someone so young pass away.

Didn’t realize him and Ryan Johnson were brothers. Ryan was actually just over at my parents house on Canada day with his family. Hopefully he doesn’t have the same thing as his brother and dad.

Rip Greg


Edit: didn’t notice OP put in that he was Ryan Johnson’s brother.

Article I read noted he had multiple concussions but no signs of depression (according to his wife)
Will be interested to see if he had cte
Utterly tragic regardless of that
