Greg London was a beloved son, brother, and friend who passed away in 2019 after battling mental illness. He was a 2017 graduate of the University of New Mexico while majoring in Chemistry and Biology. During his life, Greg exhibited a profound level of compassion and kindness that truly made the world a better place.
