Greg was a character. He was a big UFO enthusiast and I seem to recall he contributed to UFO publications and web sites. Sad news. Grey was his friend and they worked together at DEFIANT.

His obituary.

Greg Boone

Poughkeepsie - Greg Boone, 58 of Poughkeepsie, NY (Dec. 19,1959-Jan.23,2018) Artist, writer, penciller, inker, publisher, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend, passed away after a valiant battle with heart disease. A local resident most of his life, Greg was predeceased by his beloved parents, William Boone and Ernestine Clarke, and is survived by his sisters Shekinah Suitt of Poughkeepsie NY, Kimani Boone of Greensborough NC, and brother Rahsaan Boone of Rochester, NY, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and oodles of friends.

Greg Boone, known affectionately by many as just 'Boone', was a 1978 graduate of Poughkeepsie HS and a 1984 graduate of Vassar College. He began his career working for the Gannett News Service, and is the author of multiple, highly regarded comic books which are now collected and regarded as classic - among them are: Monster Posse, Evol Baby, Radrex, Miss Maam's Intergallactic Fried Chicken and Super Hero Club, and Big Heads. His images and designs were featured on the mosaic sculptures that stood for many years in Waryas Park, and Greg worked in other mediums and artistic groups and venues.

Because of his extra-ordinary talent, fearless vision, and enduring wonder and love for his family, friends and the world around him, some suspected that Boone was an alien; a benevolent, curious visitor from another galaxy. But those who love him know he was simply an exceptional human, the likes of which we shall not see again soon.

Visitation will be Tuesday January 30, 2018 from 4 to 8 PM at the Timothy P. Doyle Funeral Home 371 Hooker Avenue Poughkeepsie, NY 12603. A Service of Remembrance will be celebrated during visitation at 7:30pm. Burial will be at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Stem Cell Center of Excellence, 7800 Southwest, 57th Avenue, Suite 203, South Miami, Fl. 33143; 866-216-7223. To leave an online condolence go to www.doylefuneralhome.com.
