Gregory passed away on Saturday, December 23, 2023. Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel is assisting with his arrangements.
Sorry to hear of Greg’s passing. We kept in touch after retirement and often talked about his pets or home projects. You will be missed.
Greg was always the “go to guy” for cable modem questions and issues. Troubleshooting was part of his DNA and I learned so much from him. I always enjoyed hearing about his home renovations – adding the Hatterass lighthouse in his backyard always brought a smile. Thanks for the friendship and peace 🙏❤️
It truly saddens me to hear of Greg’s passing. I remember the first time we met it was in the big conference room in the Cleveland St CO. I had been with Cox for only two shorts months and was pulled into the Cox Life Boat protect, when Cox bought the @Home and @Work network and we scrambled to get the infrastructure in place to take the server over. Ross Shelby, Kelly Hopple, Greg and I spend many hours discussing how the cable modem registration worked and the billing attached to them and how Cox would assume all of that. I had just come from working a on private WAN/LAN network, to RF frequencies and modem registration, I had that deer in the headlight look, I think I heard about two things out of those conversations I understood , IP address and OSPF. I had discovered early on that Greg had a sweet tooth and would get him a candy bar from time to time, and yes I know he should have been eating them. Greg you will be missed my friend.
Some memories of Greg Litwin…He was one who I always knew when he came into my office, I might as well close my laptop, because it was going to be a LONG conversation! We enjoyed conversations about common interests such as home renovations, pets, and the Biltmore Estates. Greg loved the holidays and when we were in the office, he would have some type of decoration at his cube and always wanted to know what decorations I was going to put on my tree. Not a button-down guy, but a sweatshirt guy. Sneakers over dress shoes. If he had a choice, he would bring his lunch vs. go out.
Greg did not let COVID stop his ‘Drive-Bys.’ He was only a Teams video call away – now more convenient than ever to pop in and say hello! Greg loved his Cox family but during COVID made the decision to retire. We stayed in touch, and he asked about many of his former teammates every time we spoke. Greg was a loyal and dedicated employee and friend to many. I’ll miss our chats, but I am comforted in knowing he is no longer struggling and is forever at peace.
So sorry to hear Greg is no longer with us. I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Greg at Cox Communications for over 20 years until retiring. Greg and I did talk off and on since retirement, and he seemed happy. Greg was my go to contact for any news on Cox. He will be missed.
Honoring Greg with a posting here: I had the pleasure of knowing Greg initially through our work at Cox. Greg was smart and very capable. He was a hard worker over many years, dedicated to taking care of Cox’s customers. We stayed in touch after retirement and through crazy Covid years. Greg loved his pets. Cats and dogs over the years were his Virginia Beach family. Praying that Greg is past his ailments now and in peace with God.
