Joke answer: Merge with Greg's company.

Serious(er) answer: This is an opportunity for new blood to come in. Even your ideal present guy had to start out less than perfect and learn on the job. He's got a duty of honor to help you transition in a new replacement. You go haunt the dean at the nearest university business school, get a short list of MBA's he's personally familiar with, that know they don't know everything and are willing to learn from this Ideal guy that's been running the shop. You can probably afford to pay them a little less, or consider hiring two of them and splitting the jobs and the pay in some way.

The upside is, they will have fresh eyes and could help move the biz in new directions, find new markets and clients.

This is only a tragedy if you look at it as an ending, and not as a new opportunity for growth and profit.

The best leaders give away as much of their authority to their people as possible - that's how you grow new leaders. You had The Best Guy... no you gotta build a new Best Guy or Best Gal, or both.
They're out there, I guarantee it.
