Robert Greene, 93

Robert Greene, 93, died peacefully at home on Feb. 19, 2019. Robert was born in Denver, Colo., on Oct. 1, 1927, to Bryldon and Grace Greene.

Robert grew up in the Long Beach, Calif., area, where he enjoyed fishing on the beaches and piers and was present when Howard Hughes made the historic flight in what is known as the Spruce Goose.

He served two years active Navy duty, from 1944 to 1946, obtaining a rank of third class mailman in the fleet office, receiving top-secret dispatches of daily ship movements and expedited mail to those ships. Immediately following his active duty, he joined the U.S. Naval Reserves and became a communications officer. Robert received his second honorable discharge in July of 1954.

After his active service years, he worked in real estate and for Pacific Telephone and Telegraph. On April 1, 1961, Robert married Trilby May and they made their initial home in Pasadena, Calif. Shortly after their second son was born, they decided to leave the L.A. area and move to North Idaho, from which Trilby was originally from. Robert and family decided to make Hayden Lake, Idaho, their home. Upon reaching North Idaho, Robert worked for various entities including Clare Pender and the Cd’A Press, and he eventually took a position as a sales executive with Pacific Northwest Bell, which was later acquired by AT&T.

After retirement, he spent his time golfing, fishing, hunting and working the “Home Ranch,” all the while staying in the original home they had built in 1963. Robert was a volunteer for 40 years with the Kootenai County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse, which was primarily a community service entity which, among other things, provided search and rescue resources and volunteer personnel to the Sheriff’s Office.

Later in his life, Robert acknowledged the supremacy of the Lord Jesus Christ and accepted Him as his Savior. Trilby proceeded Robert in death and he is survived by his two sons: Carl and Kelly Greene; daughter-in-law, Cathy Greene; granddaughter, Hunter Greene and daughter, Candy Colletti of Las Vegas, Nev.

A memorial service is expected to be held next month.
