Gregory Alan Bishop, of Poughkeepsie, NY, passed away at his home on Sunday March 22, 2020. Greg or “Pop Pop” as he was affectionately known by his grandkids, was born May 10th, 1947 to Norman Bishop and Florence Post Bishop in Binghamton, NY. He spent his entire life here in the Hudson Valley, growing up in Mahopac, Wappingers Falls and Poughkeepsie, NY. He graduated from Roy C. Ketcham High School in 1965. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Adelphi University in 1969. He was drafted into the US Army in 1970. He married Wanda Mead Bishop on November 28, 1970 at Vassar Chapel. He spent a vast majority of his career working at Vassar Brothers Hospital. While he was trained as a respiratory therapist, he began his career as an orderly eventually working his way up to Vice President of Professional Services. He was an avid golfer and played up until the last year of his life. In addition to his wife, he is survived by: his son Todd and his wife Laura of Saratoga Springs, NY; his son Matthew and his wife Carly of North Haven, CT; the pride and joy of his later years, his two grandsons Henry Carl and Hudson Gregory, with a third grandson on the way. He is also survived by his sister Karen Bishop Pilner of Carmel, NY as well as several sister and brother in-laws, nieces, nephews and cousins. He is predeceased by his parents and his brother Kenneth. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you donate to one of Greg’s favorite charities: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or the ASPCA. The family is planning a celebration of life gathering once the current health crisis abates. Arrangements are under the direction of the Wm. G. Miller & Son FH, Inc.

I have such fond memories of Greg, both professionally and personally. He had such a gentle, yet effective, managerial style and his ability to empathize and connect with patients and families left his peers with an inspiring standard to emulate. I will always remember the fun exchanges of "competitive ribbing" at our annual surgical services golf outing that invariably served as a major incentive for competition. I know how difficult it is to lose a loved one in normal circumstances, but I cant imagine the added grief you are going through given the surreal world events we are all struggling to understand. Try and take solace in all of the fond family memories that Greg inspired. And take special pride in the example that he set as a caring, loving and compassionate human being.
Much love,
Bruce and Megan Chipkin

Dear Todd, I’m so sorry for your loss. I did not know your father, but I knew the son he raised. As a 6 th grader I could see the man you would be. That is a testament to the character of your father and mother. Times like these are never easy, but know that the hole in your heart, while never completely healing, will fill over time with loving memories of the times you shared together.
