David Keith Greene - 1956-2013

ASHLAND — David Keith Greene, 57, of Ashland, left behind his Earthly body to enter into his heavenly home and rest in the arms of Jesus on Wednesday morning, Oct. 16, 2013, at his residence, with his loving family by his side.

He was born May 7, 1956, in Ashland, a son of Nellie Sparks Greene Crisp and the late Ernest O. Greene.

David was a lifetime member of Meade Station Church of God. He was a 1974 graduate of Boyd County High School and received an associate degree in heating and air conditioning from Ashland Community College. He retired from Marshall University in the maintenance department after many years of service. He loved riding his motorcycle, camping at Carter Caves, visiting the beach and ocean and spending time with his loving family, who he wanted to be with every moment that he could. But most of all, he loved his Lord and Savior with all of his heart.

In addition to his mother, those left to cherish his memory include his beloved wife, Molly Lewis Greene; sons Joshua (Erin) Greene and Nicholas (Jessica) Greene; a stepson, Josh (Pam) Barton; Chris Cox, whom he loved like a son; his granddaughter, Dakota “Little Squirt” Greene, who was the light of his life; a grandson, Dustin Barton, who was Papaw’s buddy; a sister, Tammi Greene (Ernie) Walters; a very special cousin he loved like brother, Rob (Amy) Sparks; his stepfather, Dennie Crisp; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

A celebration of David’s life will be at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, 2013, at Steen Funeral Home-13th Street Chapel in Ashland, with words of comfort by Pastor Rob Jordan and Pastor Rick Mays. Burial will be in Thompson Family Cemetery.

Friends may call after 11 a.m. Friday at the funeral home.
