OBITUARY

John W. Greene, III

November 15, 1950October 19, 2020

John W. Greene, III, of Chili, peacefully entered into eternal rest on October 19, 2020 at the age of 69.

Predeceased by his parents, John and Mary Greene. Survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Patricia DeMers, his sister, Regina (John) Augello, and brother, Michael R. (Eloise) Greene, nephews Jason Gorton, Jarrod Gorton, Jeffrey Rasmussen and John Greene; many cousins and extended family.

Jack, as he was known to family, passed away after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease. A man of exceptional intelligence with a keen wit, a conversation with him was guaranteed to be both engaging and challenging.

He was a 1969 graduate of Aquinas Institute, going on to earn his BSEE at Buffalo and Masters degree at Binghamton University, leading to a long and rewarding career in electronics and computing. Jack enjoyed reading, Star Trek and WWII movies (favorite: Twelve O’clock High). His greatest interest and joy was all things Disney, always ready for another WDW vacation.

Jack brought light and joy to those who knew him and sometimes a groan with his humor. Known as a loving, caring and fun person, Jack the husband, brother, uncle… will be greatly missed by all.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00AM on Friday, October 23rd, at St. Monica Church, 831 Genesee St., at the corner of Monica St. Interment to follow in Holy Ghost Cemetery.

Patti, as your neighbor and friend for over 25 years please accept my deepest condolences. Jack's loss will be felt by so many people in so many different ways.
All my dogs always loved meeting him at the fence for a pet or a kind word. I'll miss sitting in the front yard for a weekend chat. Jack was always there to lend a hand to Joe when needed.
I'm glad you're right next door and we can look out for one another.

With much love, your friend Mary Catherine
