“He was kind, he was thoughtful, he was always a gentleman,” Robin Roberts said

The Good Morning America family is mourning the loss of one of its own.

On Wednesday, co-anchor Robin Roberts announced live on-air that “talented” studio camera operator Tony Greer has died of complications related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

“He was such a bright light working at our studio for more than six years,” Roberts said. “You could just feel Tony’s beautiful spirit, you could feel it from a mile away.”

“We love Tony and so many things that he loved,” she continued. “He loved his family, his beloved mother Fanny, his sister Janet, his brother Kevin. He loved taking his nieces, nephews, any relative who came to visit him, he’d take them out and show them the city.”

“He loved his longtime girlfriend Robin, we are thinking of her,” Roberts added. “She lives in his hometown, Chicago. They loved traveling the world together. They traveled extensively. And Tony loved his music. Playing guitar in his band, picking up gigs around the city, he played a mean guitar, he was a cool dude.”
