Obituary for Joe Louis Greene

Joe Louis Greene was born July 29, 1937 in Youngsville, NC to James and Iola Chavis-Greene. Joe attended public school in Wake County and graduated from Shepard High School in Zebulon, NC. He was United in Marriage to Carol Jones November 8, 1959 until her death in 2014.

Joe joined the United States Army in 1962 where he served four years and earned special recognition for his services.

Joe later moved to Washington D.C. and became a bus driver for D.C. Transit which is now Metro. Joe drove the bus several years before becoming a Subway Station Manager, then the Union Representative until his retirement.

Joe loved to laugh and talk with his co-worker’s, friends and family. He could turn a fifteen-minute conversation into two hours voicing his opinion but trying to help others. After retirement, Joe was still actively involved with the Metro Family. He sold personalized badges, belt buckles and his favorite thing to do was to make and sell T-shirts for various special events. He enjoyed doing this until his health declined.

Joe is preceded in death by his wife, Carol Jones; parents, James and Iola Chavis-Greene, and siblings, James Strickland, Robert, Carl, Thomas, Alice and James Howard Greene.

Joe leaves to cherish his memory one daughter, Doris; one son, Brian; two grandchildren, Brittany (Princess) and Brian Jr. (BJ); four great-grandchildren, Kelcey, Korde', Khi and Kash; three siblings, Mary, Shirley, and William; special niece, Helen; his Metro team warden and friend, Judy; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
