Greg LaRock, landscape painter

Our team is sad to announce that landscape painter Greg LaRock passed away from injuries in a rollerblading fall on Sunday, October 11, 2020.

“I will miss my lifelong partner, husband, and soulmate as I know many of you will miss your friend, teacher, and mentor,” said his wife, Laurie in a Facebook announcement. “Greg knew compassion like no other man I have ever known and gave it without hesitation. His spirit lives on in those of us who knew and loved him and in his timeless and beautiful paintings. In a final act of kindness and compassion, Greg had designated himself an organ donor and we know he will live on in others who never even knew him. For those of you who have reached out to me, please know your support has been immeasurable and I thank you.”
