Clifford L. Greene, 93

C lifford Lawrence Greene, age 93, of Pawlet, Vt., died Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010, at the Rutland (Vt.) Regional Medical Center.

Clifford was born on Oct. 24, 1917, in Danby, Vt., the son of Roy E. and Cassie (Harrington) Greene.

Clifford was a real people person and loved to visit, therefore his job as the postmaster of Pawlet was a perfect fit.  As a “Vermonter,” the making of maple crème came naturally to him and he loved to do it. He was an avid woodworker.  He loved spending time with this grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Clifford was predeceased by his wife Marguerite (Moore) Greene and his siblings, Sewell, Myron, Malcolm, Lottie, Muriel and Mildred.

Survivors are his two daughters, Marie Lockwood and her husband, John, of Baldwinsville and Bonita Smith and her husband, Gardner, of Wells, Vt. In addition he is survived by a brother, Clyde Greene of Benson, Vt., and a sister, Gladys Corey of Granville; as well as several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his beloved grandchildren, Teresa Lockwood and her companion, Joe Larino, Melinda Taylor and her husband Tom, Andrea Connoly and her husband, Jim, Michael Lockwood and his wife, Tonya, and Mark Smith and his wife, Kelly; and his great-grandchildren, Derrick and Justin Taylor, Peter and Lindsey Connoly, Calleigh and Molly Lockwood and Brandon and Austin Smith.

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 2, at 11 a.m. at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, with the Rev. Robert Boutwell officiating. Burial will be in the Mettowee Valley Cemetery in Pawlet, Vt. Friends may call on Monday, Nov. 1, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the funeral home.
