I'll miss LC I met him in his second year with the Steelers I certainly increased my appreciation of football thx to him and a 40 yr friendship included. A rare thing
January 04, 2014
Most definately one of the best and dominating defensive ends in the game. Aide and was a member of the most feared front four, The Steel Curtain. L.C. you will be missed but not forgotten. I loved those gold high top cleats you wore, although worn for the ankle injury, they stood out as a fashion statement. I send my coledences to the Greenwood family. May L.C. rest in peace.

Enjoyed watching you play football with the Pittsburgh Steelers. That steel curtain was amazing to watch back in the day. To be absent from the body and present with the Lord is eternal. For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favor is life,weeping may endure for a night,but joy comes in the morning. Psalms 30:5 Rest in Peace.

My name is Mitch Jamerson from Orange Lake, Marion County, Florida. I became a Pittsburgh Steeler fan in 1969 at 7 years old. It was Joe Greene and LC Greenwood that caught my attention to the Pittsburgh Steeler team. A few years later Mel Blount, John Stallworth, Andy Russell, Dwight White, Ernie Holmes, Jack Lambert, Jack Ham, Franco Harris, Rocky Blair and Dennis "dirt" Winston was added to my favorite players. But Joe Greene, LC Greenwood and Mel Blount were exciting to watch on the Steeler Defense. When LC came out on the field with his golden shoes on for the first time, I called him "LC Hollywood". It was a style he created and as a true fan, I loved it. As a true Steeler fan, your hopes and dreams are to meet some of the "Steeler Greats" one day. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to meet LC, but the memories of him will always be with me forever. Rest in Peace LC and God Bless your entire family who has truly lost a precious loved one. With our deepest sympathy Mitch Jamerson and the Jamerson family. Orange Lake, Marion County, Florida

To the family of L.C. Greenwood. I am sorry for your loss. I am a graduate of Arkansas AM&N in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Attending from 1965-1969. Your love one was a very friendly and personable young man. He will be remembered forever for his good deeds.
October 07, 2013
God bless you L.C. After all your good works are done you are now with the angels. You made us proud of our Steelers and gave to the community. If only more people were like you the world would be a better place.
October 07, 2013
It was a joy and a privilege watching you and the rest of the wrecking crew play at AM&N and later you as part of the iron curtain. You deserve HOF.

Thanks for memories. You will always be remembered as one of the best who ever played the game.
October 07, 2013
Gone to soon but will never be forgotten.
He left precious memories that nothing can take away. He made his mark on earth & now he's gone where there is no more pain, where love never die. His passing has brought sad tears,but,we will cherish his memories always to brighten the passing years. My prayers go out to the family. Gloria Lowe AM&N
October 07, 2013
My sincerest sympathies to the Greenwood family, and all those who love L.C. He may not have remembered me, a small child of one of his employees at Monaloh Basin Engineers in the mid-80s, but I have the fondest memories of his kindness and generosity to our family. He and Mr. Jim McDonald were truly gentle men with hearts bigger than their bodies. I also remember as a child being absolutely awestruck at the size of his hands, and how such a large man could fit inside such a small Mercedes convertible. More than 25 years later, you continue to make an impression on me, then the shy small girl holding her fathers hand at the first company picnic. You will be missed.
October 07, 2013
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
October 07, 2013
very saddened to hear that another of the great members of the Pittsburgh Steelers championship teams passed away. he certainly made an impact on those "steel curtain defenses" now is playing for the greatest coach of all. may god watch over your family at this time of sorrow. rest in peace L.C. you will always be missed

For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Corinthians 5:1

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family of L.C. Greenwood. I pray that the Lord will fill that empty place with his unfailing love. Growing up in the "Burgh". I became a fan of the "Stillers" having no choice but to watch football on Sundays. L.C. is definitely one name that will have to mentioned whenever anyone talks about great defensive ends. I had the opportunity to meet and tease L.C about being an old Pittsburgh Steeler I remembered watching when I was a little, little girl. He and 3 of his former teammates were traveling on a flight I was boarding while working at the airport. When I came on board this gentle giant got up out of his seat and approached me and then looking down at me, he said, "you were a little, little girl?" What a sweet guy. I laughed and had to confess that I was a teenager when I watched him play and he calmly went back to his seat.

We have lost a special guy.
October 04, 2013
To the family of L. C. Greenwood,
May you all find comfort in the grace of God. My prayers are with you all. RIP L.C my "Steeler Legend"
October 04, 2013
L.C. Was a good friend through the years. He attended our daughter's wedding in 1994. He and I spoke at length about OUR favorite soap-opera; THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS! He was a GENTLE GIANT and will be missed.
October 04, 2013
L.C. You are why I am a Steeler fan from Philly for life. Also being a Pastor myself it's with great joy that we who believe celebrate your transition. Now rest and receive your inheritance & reward.
October 04, 2013
To The Family of Brother Greenwood I offer My Sympathy for You all and Know that he is in a better Place today!

October 03, 2013
To the familTo the family: While I never had the opportunity to actually meet L.C., I grew up watching he and his teammates play a game they obviously had great passion for. Someday when my son is old enough to understand, I will tell him about the greatest linemen in football history. L.C. had a gift and I know I am not the only one who is thankful he shared that gift with us. No one can ever fill the void left by his loss, and he will truely be missed.
October 03, 2013
We are praying for God's comfort to the entire Greenwood family. My friend I hardly know what to say. I will always remember Chelsea's first birthday party. I brought Peg, my now wife of 28 years. I was trying to impress her, apparently it worked. Thank you for that and the many memories both on and especially off the field. We will miss you my friend. (Rover)
October 03, 2013

Dear family,
I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort be with your family. The bible help us to see that there will be a time when sickness will be a thing of the pass. Isa 33:24 says no resident will say I am sick. This is one of the fond blessings we can look forward to. Continue to pray and never give up.
October 02, 2013
My condolences to the Greenwood Family. I've been a Pittsburgh Steelers fan since I was 17 years old (1971), and LC was one of my favorite players. May he rest in peace.
October 02, 2013
LC was a great friend and Bethany Baptist Church has lost a great advocate who loved Jesus and served Him with his whole heart. The greatest statement that can be made is that he is in the greatest Hall of Fame. The only one that counts for eternity. We love you and our prayers will always be with your family.

L.C. you was a gentle giant amoung men! You liked to keep a low profile, but you never denied anyone an autograph. But for me it was a special challenge, what was supposed to be a Christmas present became a birthday present for my boyfriend, because we could not get together for it at Christmas time. I never got your autograph for myself always for someone else. HEAVEN NOW HAS THE STEEL CURTAIN the Devil can not get in Now! Love and miss you LC!

I wish you well Mr. Greenwood as you make your transition. God gave you a talent that you shared with the world. I enjoyed watching football back then with players such as L.C. Greenwood, Claude Humphrey, Joe Greene and Ernie Ladd, just to name a few of the football greats that played during your tenure. Thanks to your family for letting us share a part of your life by watching you at work on any given Sunday afternoon. Rest in Peace.
October 01, 2013
To the family of LC. I extend my heartfelt sympathy. I met LC in 1975 and we had a 10 minute conversation of my desire to pursue a career that no women were in at that time. Everyone else laughed at me. LC asked me what plans I had made to make this career a reality. I told him, he approved and wished me God's blessings on my difficult journey. That 10 minutes he took to listen to and mentor me inspired me to take the time to listen to and mentor others. LC you have always been a giant of a man on and off the field. We will miss you here but feel comforted in knowing that you're resting in the arms of our Lord.
October 01, 2013
You will be missed, L.C. You always greeted me with a big smile and that hardy laugh!!! I'm so glad I had the opportunity in the late 80s to work with you on the Golf Classic. You are one of the GOOD PEOPLE...

L.C. Greenwood was a distinctively GREAT NFL player. He was an integral and essential part of the "Steel Curtain". L.C. was a unique personality who brought original Steelers fans an awesome and unforgettable image of the ultimate pass rusher. And who could forget those gold shoes!

Gone but not forgotten.

My heartfelt sympath to Mr. Greenwood's family and friends. I was not an avid football fan, but had four brothers who worshiped the man. His name was always punctuated with a WHOOP on Sunday afternoons. It makes me sad to hear of this, as coming from a family of eleven, we have lost quite a few over the past decade. I know the sudden passing of a loved one can rock your world. Godspeed, L.C.
