A farewell to Hind

San Luis ObispoNovember 9, 2012 

We at the Central Coast Veteran’s Memorial Museum were saddened to learn of Greg Hind’s passing. Greg was a friend and benefactor of the museum and will be sorely missed.

Three years ago, Greg came to the museum and mentioned that he was impressed with the work we had completed, but that it was difficult to find because there was no address or signage at the Veterans Building to indicate it was there.

He then offered to build a monument sign to designate the museum and the address at 801 Grand Ave., where the Veteran’s Building and the museum is located. The result was an impressive monument which does the job and is illuminated at night in an inspiring manner.

Greg was a true gentleman and a patriot. He will soon be celebrated with a plaque on the Wall of Honor at the museum along with other patriotic San Luis Obispo citizens.
