Glenn Greene

Passed: July 03, 2024
Charleston, WV


Glenn Greene, a cherished member of the community and a lifelong enthusiast of major league baseball, particularly his beloved New York Mets, passed away peacefully at his home on July 3, 2024. Glenn’s life was marked by his vibrant love for sports and his unwavering dedication to family.

Born and raised in a home where the spirit of adventure thrived, Glenn spent years traveling across the United States with his parents, Gertie and Keyster Greene. These journeys fostered a deep bond with his father and mother, most notably through their shared passion for the traveling. One of Glenn’s most treasured memories was following the Mets through spring training in Florida. His love for sports extended to college basketball, where he avidly supported Coach K and the Duke Blue Devils.

Glenn graduated from George Washington High School and was a dedicated member of the Bible Center Church, where he found community and faith. His loyalty and enthusiasm were not limited to the stands or his television screen; he was a fervent supporter of his brothers Gary and Rick in their coaching career, attending games and cheering them on with unwavering pride. His infectious spirit and commitment to his family were evident in every cheer and word of encouragement.

Glenn was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Gertie and Keyster Greene. He is survived by his brothers, Gary and Rick (Mary), and a loving extended family: nieces Melisa Greene, Sara Steorts (Jason), and Andrea Greene; nephew Matt Greene (Krista); and great-nieces and nephews Cooper Zent, Chase and Ty Steorts, and Nolan and Eli Greene.

The family extends heartfelt gratitude to Glenn’s wonderful caregivers: Tiffiny Waugh, Brandy Bailey, and Jaylynn Rose, whose services and kindness brought comfort and joy to Glenn’s life. They also thank his loyal friends who faithfully checked on him and took him on many adventures.

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations to Special Olympics and Kanawha County Humane Association in memory of Glenn.

A graveside service will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 6, 2024, at Tyler Mountain Memory Gardens, Cross Lanes, WV, with Reverend Dr. Jay Parkins officiating.

Glenn’s legacy of love, loyalty, and enthusiasm for life will be cherished by all who knew him.

  2. To Glenn’s family we are so sorry for your loss.
    Glenn was a very special man. He never let his condition stop him from enjoying life. His mom, dad, family and friends made sure his life was filled with things he loved. He was always excited about all the sporting events he attended, his love of the Lord was always present, as was his love of family and friends. We so enjoyed our high school reunions because his presence made us smile! Glenn’s smile would light up any room he entered. David remembers all the times in junior high and high school when the neighborhood guys would play BB for hours. I remember how he would always tease me about anything and everything because he liked to see me get embarrassed. Very mischievous!
    He will be missed!!!
    He and David shared their birthday, July 8.
    We will be wishing him a very happy heavenly birthday! We will miss chatting with him!
    We take comfort that he will be there when our time comes.
    Blessings !

  3. I’ve had the privilege of knowing Glenn for many years. We first met at church where Glenn and I worked side by side in Awana. He loved the kids and was always an inspiration to everyone. I never ever heard him complain about anything. We traded corny jokes like baseball cards. His jokes were usually the kind that made you shake your head and groan. I can still hear him laughing. He had a deep faith in Jesus, and now he’s walking with Him. I’m thankful for the impact he had on my life and for his friendship. We will keep his family in our thoughts and prayers.

    As all would know, Glenn was a very special person in my life. With all of the great times we had early on, he taught me how to drive his Volkswagen Beadle and the trips to Lynch’s for honey buns. Seeing his strength dealing with his health through High School and his accomplishments to graduate. As we talked through the years he always kept that positive attitude and his love for all things Duke and Coach K. He called me his little sister, an everlasting friendship. He has joined his family with the Lord. He will be dearly missed and in my thoughts and prayers forever.
