Danny Thomas Greene
Loving Husband, Father, and Grandfather
Canton - Danny Thomas Greene, age 74, was welcomed into the arms of Jesus Thursday, April 8, 2021 with his loving wife of 55 years, Linda Greene, by his side.
Danny was born March 30, 1947 in Watauga County, and had resided most of his life in Haywood County. He was preceded into heaven by his parents, Perry Greene and Hazel Shore Greene; and by his brother, Larry Greene.
Mr. Greene was employed by Evergreen Packaging in Canton and had retired after 44 years of dedicated service.
