George Welby Greene, 66, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, March 27, 2021. He was born in Long Island, New York to the late John and Marie Greene.
George had made a successful life for himself. He had met the love of his life, Gabriella, while they were in high school. Nearly a decade ago, George and Gabriella made a motorcycle trip through the Blue Ridge Mountains, instantly falling in love with Western North Carolina. Before long they had decided to make Hendersonville their home.
George had a Master’s degree from Rochester Institute of Technology; he was a proud owner of Greene Software. In his free time, George was an avid tennis player and a Honda Goldwing enthusiast.
Despite all of George’s amazing accomplishments made throughout his sixty-six years, nothing compared to his family, who were his absolute pride and joy, especially his beloved grandchildren.
Left to cherish George’s memory are his wife, Gabriella; daughters, Stefany and Michael Brown with their children, Aidan and Brinley of Saint Petersburg, Florida; Allison and John Farmer with their children, Katherine and Benjamin of New Braunfels, Texas; sisters, Barbara, Marilyn and Shayla and families; and brothers, Jack, Jim and Tom and families.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions may be made to St Jude’s Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN, 38105 or to a local Food bank of the donor’s choice.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2pm on Sunday, June 13, 2021, at the Barn at Tall Oaks, 28 Bradley Road, Hendersonville, North Carolina, 28791.
