Gregory Charles Knipe, 68, of Syracuse, NY passed away on July 12, 2018. He was born in a suburb of Philadelphia, PA to George and Kay (Catherine) Knipe on May 4 1950. The family moved from PA in Greg’s early years, first to Marcellus, NY, and then finally settled in North Syracuse, where Greg grew up. He graduated from Bishop Ludden High School and attended The University of Dayton in Ohio where he graduated in 1973 with a B.S. Degree in Communication Arts. He spent his entire career working in the Banking and Finance Industries. He was the Lending Manager at Cooperative Federal up until his passing. In the nearly 2 decades Greg spent doing community development lending at the credit union, he used his wealth of experience and knowledge to help thousands of people.
Greg enjoyed sports. He played baseball as an adolescent and lettered in varsity baseball, track, and football in high school. He loved to talk baseball. He was a passionate fan of both the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies, and enjoyed rooting for his alma mater, the Dayton Flyers, during March Madness.
He was a very personable guy who was loved and respected by his many friends and colleagues. He will be truly missed by all. Greg is predeceased by his father, George, mother, Kay and brothers, Terrance and Christopher.
An open memorial service will be held at The Spa at 500, 500 W Onondaga St, Syracuse, NY 13204, from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm on Monday, July 23, 2018. Greg will be laid to rest alongside his family in North Syracuse Cemetery.
Rest in peace our beloved friend.
