Buddy Greer

 

Johnny W. “Buddy” Greer, age 80, passed away on September 1, 2023 in Bristol, TN after an extended illness. He was born May 8, 1943 in Fireco, West Virginia to the late James Lester Greer and Etta Eastridge Greer. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by ten brothers and sisters.

 

Buddy proudly served in United States Army with the Big Red One and received the Bronze Star. He and his wife, Pauline, enjoyed military life and traveling the world together. In his spare time he liked to fish, hunt, and spend many wonderful hours target practicing at his private shooting range which he built himself. Buddy loved his church family and teaching Sunday school very much.

 

Buddy is survived by his wife of 60 years, Pauline Winters Greer; sons and daughters-in-law, John and Anita Greer of Gray, TN and Jim and Tracy Greer of Big Rock, TN; grandchildren, Seth, Hannah, Eli, Caleb, and Natalie; sister and brother-in-law, Drema and Glen Richardson; brother-in-law, Clay Wilson; sister-in-law, Alice Winters Laws and husband Ray Laws.

 

He was surrounded and cared for by an extended family of older men and women, veterans, Yankees, hunters, readers, farmers, and a church that truly loved their neighbors as themselves. The family would like to thank them all and owes them a debt of gratitude they can never repay.
