Obituary for Greenville "Greenie" L. Wright, Jr.

On October 3, 2018, Greenville “Greenie” L. Wright, Jr., of Virginia Beach, VA, left this earth to join the Faithful at the throne of God.

Born on August 4, 1929, in Princess Anne County, Greenie was Baptized at London Bridge Baptist Church and attended Oceana High School before graduating from Virginia Polytechnic Institute with a Letter in Wrestling and a Bachelor’s of Science in Horticulture. A dedicated civil servant, he retired after 35 years of Federal service. Greenie loved the water; fishing, boating, and body surfing at Virginia Beach. While small in stature, he touched everyone he met with his giant heart and enveloping spirit. Loving, kind, and generous, Greenie was a devoted family man with a wonderful sense of humor and strong moral compass.

He was welcomed at the Gates of Heaven by his parents, Greenville L. Wright, Sr., and Ruth E. Wright and his elder sister, Evelyn Strohkorb. Left to cherish his memory are his three children, G. L. Wright, III (Suzy), Cindy W. Anderson (Gene), and Ivy W. Bush; three grandchildren, John G. Bush, Cheyenne M. Wright, and Cameron D. Wright; one sister, Irene Nielsen; and many nieces and nephews. He was our Rock and our best friend, and he left us with many happy, wonderful memories to cherish. There were no strangers to Greenie, only friends he hadn’t yet met.

Visitation with the family will be at Hollomon-Brown Funeral Home, Lynnhaven Chapel on Virginia Beach Blvd. Wednesday, October 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. Condolences may be offered to the family at
