Gregory Blair Gould rounded third base for the last time on Monday, January 7, 2019. Greg was born on November 28, 1951 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but lived in Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia most of his life. Greg was predeceased by his parents, George Blair and Dorothy Edwards Gould and his brother, Russell Barry Gould. He is survived by his sister Lynne Gould Parks and her husband Scott; nieces and nephew, Blair Hill Parks, Melissa Gould Allen and Kyle William Parks.
Greg graduated from Francis C. Hammond High School and earned a B.A. in Religion from the University of Richmond in 1973. Professionally, Greg made a 40-year career with Red Top Cab of Arlington, but his first love was sports of all kinds. Greg, nicknamed “Maz”, was a gifted baseball and softball player, so much so that he garnered a tryout with the Kansas City Royals and is a member of the Fairfax Adult Softball Hall of Fame as part of the RAVCO Softball team. He leaves a legacy where he touched many youths’ lives coaching multiple sports in the Alexandria Recreation League in the George Mason Elementary School Neighborhood.
