JAMES GREENE

James “Jim” Thomas Greene, 59, of Weirton, WV, passed away Friday, January 12, 2018 at Weirton Medical Center.

He was born August 15, 1958 in Wheeling, WV.

He was preceded in death by his loving mother, Dorothy E. Helms Greene.

He is survived by his father, James U. Greene and wife, Barbara of Wheeling; sister, Terri Maestle of Wheeling; four brothers, Don Greene of Pittsburgh, PA, Mike Greene of Wheeling, Richard Greene and wife, Deborah, of Wheeling, and Dave Greene of Wheeling.

Also surviving are 21 adoring nieces and nephews, who will miss their Uncle Buck, as well as his sweet puppies, Bo and Jazz, and cat, Tom E.

He was a 1976 graduate of Linsly Military Institute and a graduate of West Liberty University with a degree in English. He worked many years in the mortgage industry in the Pittsburgh area.

He was an avid Steelers fan, had a wonderful sense of humor, and was a vivid storyteller with a razor sharp wit. No family gathering was complete without Uncle Buck. His passing leaves a great void; he will be forever missed by his family and all who knew him.

“Until we meet again in a better place.”

Private services with family members will be held at a later date.
