Being a carpenter and working with tools and wood projects was not just his trade, it became Charlie’s hobby and passion.  His family and friends will treasure the many beautiful things that he made for them throughout the years.

Greene Jr.; a brother, Larry Greene; infant granddaughter, Hannahlore Hagedorn, and son-in-law Delmar H. Hagedorn, III.


Charlie is survived by his wife, Lorrie (Toth) Greene, whom he married Aug. 15, 1964; one son, Eric (Stacey) Greene of Helotes, TX; two daughters, Kathrina Hagedorn of Kearneysville, WV, and Janniene (Ray) Huber of Newark, OH; seven grandchildren, Mark, Cole, and Zane Greene, Delmar and Reanna Hagedorn, and Malorrie (Cameron) Hubble and Raymond Huber; two great grandchildren, McKinley and Camrrie Hubble and one great grandchild, Baby Hubble, on the way.

Funeral services will immediately follow at 1 pm with Pastor Margaret Hoder officiating. A military service will be held immediately afterwards at the Friendship Park Veterans Wall Memorial with the Piney Fork American Legion Post 735 officiating.
