Richard Henry Greenway

Richard Henry Greenway was born September 16, 1936 and died February 7, 2012 at Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Washington.

Richard’s zest for life involved anything outdoors. His free time was spent fishing, hunting and spending time with his sons. He was an avid animal lover and had many animal companions throughout his life.

He served in the Navy on the U.S.S. Thor, laying sonar cables in the Pacific Ocean for two years. When he was discharged, he went into construction with his uncle and cousin in California. It was there, in a supermarket, that he met the love of his life, Donna. Together they followed heavy construction, traveling throughout several Western States. Then Richard panned for gold on the American River in California for two years. From there he lived in several Alaska towns working as a commercial fisherman and construction, enjoying the last frontier. Upon retirement they settled in Washington.

Richard is survived by his wife of 52 years, Donna; his son, Randy; daughter-in-law, Kimberlee; grandson, Bradlee; granddaughter, MacKinzee; daughter-in-law, Glenda; brother-in-law, Danny; nephew, Shaun; niece, Danielle; and by his cousin, Delores.

Richard is preceded in death by his beloved son, Rory.

Private memorial services will be held in his honor in Petersburg, Alaska.
