It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather Francis (Kevin) Greene on July 6, 2013 at the age of 84 years.
Kevin will be sadly missed and forever remembered by his wife of 61 years Helen, daughter Cathie (Niels) Jensen, son David, daughter Nancy (Mark) Darwish and son Michael; grandchildren Martin (Roberta) Jensen, Aaron (Sarah) Jensen and Christopher, Kevin, and Kylee Darwish. Kevin also leaves behind four great-grandchildren Eric, Natasha, Makenna and Luke; two brothers Curly (Peggy) and Hugh (Doris) and one sister Roseanne (Jim), numerous other relatives and friends. Kevin was predeceased by his parents Rose and Patrick, brothers Pat, Jerry and Jim and sisters Mae and Eileen.
Kevin was a loving and giving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He and Helen would always be ready to help out and pitch in with any project that arose from building a house to raising grandchildren. There was no one more reliable. Kevin’s warm nature and loving heart made him a friend to everyone he came into contact with. Everyone loved Kevin and loved being around him. He leaves a big hole in our family and in our hearts.
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the staff and volunteers of 12Y at the Edmonton General Hospital. Their compassion and care is greatly appreciated.
