Gregory M. Rivet

A remembrance from Chip Rubendall:

“You’ll almost certainly hear more about Greg’s very recent death from one or both of his roommates, Tom Ketchum and Ian Gilchrist. Let me offer this small contribution:

A treasured friend from our very first days together in “Dirty Durf,” I shall miss Greg immensely. French Canadian by birth and a year older than most of us, Greg oozed the easy confidence, savior faire, and bonhomie that a “rube” (my apt nickname) from a rural high school in Central Pennsylvania could only admire, never emulate. Not surprisingly, he displayed consummate grace and skill on the ice for Yale. I wish now that I had seen more of Greg in the forty-nine years since our graduation.”
