1932 – 2018
John Leonard Greene left his earthly life surrounded by love on Sept. 6, 2018 at the age of 86. Born in Lansing Michigan he was the youngest of nine children to Leslie and Lenora Greene. After graduating from Napa High School in 1951, John served his country in Korea while in the U.S. Army. Upon his return he went to work for Mare Island Naval Shipyard where he worked as a pipefitter for 35 years before retiring.
In 1956 John married the love of his life, LaMar. They were happily married until she passed away in 2000. Later he met his partner Elena Moore, who gave him much additional happiness. A caring man who took in foster children and others in time of need, John served the Lord for many years as a member of the Fairfield Presbyterian Church. He had a wonderful sense of humor which showed in his playfulness and happy spirit, and he enjoyed traveling, gardening, and the beauty of flowers.
A loving family man, he is survived by his brother James Greene of Puyallup Washington, sons Phillip and Calvin Greene and daughters Sally Greene and Lezlee Offutt. He also leaves four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, in addition to his extended family, Susana Santiago, Jesus Nebot and Manuel.
Internment will be held at 10 am Friday Sept. 14, 2018 at the Fairfield Cemetery.
