I met Gregory Hinds, about 2 years ago. He has spent some time here in Toronto. We were both oggling and drooling over the latest model of Jaguar. He was a most wonderful witty individual, and he will be greatly missed. Just a fine human being. I met him going into a Bank near Islington and Albion Rd.
Not many of the "GREATS" left,eh?
And so the Harlem-born African-American star of stage (Sophisticated Ladies, Jelly's Last Jam) and screen, both big (White Nights, Tap, A Rage In Harlem, The Cotton Club) and small (Will & Grace, The Gregory Hines Show), now lies in the family plot of Carmela and Michael Truszyk in St. Volodymyr's Ukrainian Catholic cemetery west of Toronto.
