Beiter, who was employed by Conemaugh as a courier, died Aug. 24.
“He was always there for his family and friends and did for others without any expectations," said his sister, Barbara Otolinsky, who also works at Memorial Medical Center. "His name ‘Greg’ means watchful eye, always looking out for others.”
She added that Beiter loved to hunt, fish and quad.
The family is working with Conemaugh and the Red Cross to help increase awareness of the need for blood and blood products to support hospital patients across the blood region’s 100-county service area. The Conemaugh Health System is one of more than 80 hospitals served by the local regional Red Cross.
