Henry B. Greene III, beloved husband, father, pastor, friend, died suddenly on Monday, November 18 at age 61. A native of Fresno and long-time resident of the Central Valley, he suffered a massive heart attack while hiking in his favorite location – Yosemite. He was born to Henry and Shirley Greene of Fresno, and is survived by two brothers and a sister. He also leaves behind his wife Karen of 39 years and three children: son Jeffrey with his wife Amy, son Peter with his wife Ashley, daughter Kathryn, and two precious granddaughters.

He graduated from McLane High School in Fresno, and attended Stanford University and Fresno State University, graduating in 1974. He obtained his Master of Divinity and his Doctorate of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary in 1977 and 1996, respectively. He pastored Grandview Presbyterian Church for 5 years, Dinuba Presbyterian Church for 18 years, and Central Presbyterian Church for 13 years. Through his ministries in Glendale, Dinuba, and Merced, he left an indelible impression on more lives than he knew. While he is greatly missed, his family rejoices that Jesus Christ has the last word over all of our lives, and that word is life!

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, December 4th at 2pm at Central Presbyterian Church, 520 W. 20th St., Merced, CA 95340. Donations may be given in Henry's name to Central Presbyterian Church.
