Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
William (Bill) E. Greening passed away peacefully on Jan 23, 2023, at the young age of 68 years old.
Bill was born June 15th, 1955, in Hannibal, Missouri. The family would eventually move to Kansas City, Missouri. He made a good life for himself, retiring from Sun Chemical Corporation after 30 years. He settled into retirement and focused his energy on himself and his family. His family was everything to him. He spent most of his free time with his children and grandchildren. Bill knew no stranger… if you were in earshot, you were welcomed. If you were lucky enough to become his friend, you became family. If you spent time with him, you may have memories of watching football and cheering on The Kansas City Chiefs, or him Rock’n out to his music blasting thru the house. One thing about Bill Greening, he lived his life to the fullest.
He is preceded in death by his parents, William L. Greening and Mary R. Greening; his sisters Mary Ann (Greening) Mitchell, and Regina (Jeannie) L. Greening; his brother Kevin L. Greening, and nephew Christopher C. Greening.
Bill is survived by his children William (Billy) L. Greening, Vanessa L. (Greening) Logan, and Jacob (Jake) A. Greening; son-in-law Russell Logan; sisters Kathleen M. (Greening) Lincoln and Deborah M. Greening; eight grandchildren and two bonus grandchildren who he loved dearly.
Dad you are Missed,
A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me,
Remember the best times, the laughter, the song.
The good life I lived while I was strong.
Continuing my heritage, I am counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely the sun will come through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remembering all, how I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls.
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the day comes, we’re together again.

I met Bill and Linda when they lived down the hall from me in Illinois over 40 years ago, late 70’s. He was a wonderful person and always had a smile on his face. There was nobody I knew that did not become a friend that met him or Linda. It was a sad day when they moved back to KC for all of us that knew them in Illinois. A friend, her two children & I went and visited them after they moved. His family was wonderful to us and we had the best time there. If you met Bill, you knew by the person he was that he had a wonderful family. You knew that family was everything to him. I could go on and on about all the good times we had. He will be missed by so many. My heart goes out to his family and all those who knew him. He is now an angel in heaven watching over all his loved ones. Gone way too soon. I know that any of us who were lucky enough to meet him, will never forget him. Sending my deepest sympathy to all his family and friends.
