Keith Arnold Greene

July 24, 1956 ~ August 9, 2023 (age 67) 67 Years Old


Keith Arnold Greene, age 67, of Chestnut Grove Road, Boone, passed away Wednesday morning, August 9, 2023 at his home.  Born July 24, 1956 in Watauga County, he was a son of Claude and Blanche Davis Greene. 

After graduation from Watauga High School Keith worked in various jobs including a grocery store, construction, long haul trucking and farming.  Keith was a man always in motion.  He was a skilled self-taught carpenter and builder, always ready and willing to help anyone needing a helping hand, and never expecting anything in return. However, Keith’s passion was working on the family farm where he grew up.

He is survived by his wife, Teresa Hayes Greene; son, Tyler Greene of Cary; brother, Elson Greene and wife, Becky, of Boone, and sister, Virginia Chapman and husband, Everett, of Campobello, SC.; his mother-in-law, Phyllis Hayes of Zionville; brother-in-law, Humphrey Hayes and wife, Sherry, of Zionville; and sisters-in-law, Dara Kisselburg and husband Eric, of Boiling Springs and Cynthia Church of Vilas.  Several nieces, nephews, and cousins also survive, including Keith’s kidney donor, Dr. Dwaine Greene and his wife, Carolyn, of Boone.

Funeral services for Keith Greene will be conducted Sunday afternoon, August 13, 2023, at 2 o’clock at the Austin & Barnes Funeral Chapel, officiated by Rev. Patricia Greene and Rev. Burl Greene.  The family will receive friends from 1 until 2 o’clock, prior to services, at Austin & Barnes.  Graveside services will be private.

The Greene family extends a sincere ‘Thank You’ to Dr. Pirouz Daeihagh, Dr. James Atkins, Dr. Cynthia Ballenger, and Amorem Hospice for their care and compassion.
