It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart that we need to inform you of the unexpected passing of Greg Feeney on Friday, February 10th.

Greg was integral to the growth and operation of the APEX organization.  He was not only essential to the logistical operation of the club, but was also a valued head coach and coordinator of our youth development programs.  Much of the success of APEX can be attributed to Greg.

He also served as the Northern Counties Representative to the GEVA's Juniors Competition Committee as well as being GEVA's Junior Tournament Coordinator and Webmaster.

He will be greatly missed.

Greg Feeney, 55, died suddenly of a heart attack at Vassar Brothers Medical Center on February 10, 2017. Greg was born on November 15, 1961 in Poughkeepsie, NY, to Don and Joanne Feeney. He lived most of his life in Wappingers Falls, NY. He worked as a Manager of Infrastructure and Operations at IBM for 34 years. Most importantly, he was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend, and mentor. He touched the lives of all who knew him.

One of his proudest moments was receiving a patent through his work with IBM. Outside of working for IBM, he was involved for several years with the local volleyball club, APEX. The sport meant a lot to him and was something he shared with his daughters, brother-in-law, and nieces.

In addition to his three children, he was a father figure to many. He was willing to lend a hand to anyone and everyone who needed it, even from states away. He will be missed in more ways than one.

He is survived by his wife, Heidi K. Feeney; his daughters, Ellen M. Feeney, Leanne N. Shoemaker and husband, Joe, and Gina C. Feeney; his father, Don Feeney; his siblings, John Feeney and wife, Rosemarie, Susan Hughes and husband, Garry, David Feeney and wife, Tracy;  his many nieces and nephews; and one great-niece.

He was predeceased by his mother, Joanne Feeney.
