Lewis Greene

November 1, 1939 — September 10, 2015

Lewis Robert Greene, age 75, of Sparland passed away Thursday, September 10, 2015 at his home.
He was born on November 1, 1939 in Sparland to Louis Edward and Mary Laurancy (Humphrey) Greene. He was married for over 53 years to Nancy Lee Lewis. They were married on February 17, 1962 at the First United Methodist Church in Chillicothe.
Lewis was raised and attended Sparland High School Graduating in 1957. He liked to tell people that he graduated in the top ten of his class, however there were only ten in his class. He will be remembered for his jokes even if he did repeat them.
Lewis worked for Hyster Tractor Company from 1959 to 1977 and worked at Caterpillar Tractor Company from 1977 until 1994. He enjoyed camping and doing his own mechanical work. He was an avid Morel Mushroom hunter. Very rarely did he ever take his car to a mechanic. With help from family and friends he even built his own log cabin. He enjoyed country music.
