Gerald W. Greenlee, 84, passed away on Monday, Feb. 5, 2018, at the Alexandria Care Center following an extended illness
He was born Feb. 15, 1933, in Summitville, to Andrew and Goldie (Gaither) Greenlee. Gerald served with the United States Army and was honorably discharged in 1953.
He retired from Delco Remy in 1996 after 42 years of employment. Gerald was a devoted member of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Kokomo. He enjoyed doing handyman tasks around the church and was a faithful driver for the "bread route" that supplied the church food pantry. He enjoyed farming and was a loyal fan of John Deere farm equipment and collectibles. His daily private time with the Lord was very important to him. If you knew Gerald, you knew "God is beyond awesome" was his heart cry.
He is survived by his son, Brian Greenlee of Tulsa, Oklahoma; daughter, Michelle Cadle of Tipton; four grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; sister, Marilyn (Bob) Smith of Alexandria; nephews and special nieces, Diana Kellermeyer of Berne and Karen Wright of Alexandria; special brother-in-law, Bob Jones of Stuart, Florida.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Anne (Ridgeway) Greenlee in 2015; son, Gerry Greenlee in 1977; and sister, Belvadeen Jones in 1975.
