Robert Greenway July 1, 1929 – November 26, 2012 Robert Greenway went to be with the Lord on November 26th 2012. His son was at his side when he passed away. Bob was born on July 1st, 1929, in Patterson, NJ. He served in the US Navy during the Korean War on a destroyer. Bob was preceded in death by his wife, Joyce Greenway. He is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Doug and Debbie Greenway of Eagle, Idaho, and two daughters, Pam Orozco of Ojai, California, and Jane Coffey of Casper, Wyoming. Bob has five grandchildren, Michael, Danny, and Stacie Greenway of Eagle, Idaho; Kyle Coffey of Ogden, Utah, and Chris Coffey of Casper, Wyoming. Bob is also survived by his twin brother, Warren Greenway of Pahrump, Nevada and seven nephews and nieces. Bob was a talented machinist who worked for Cal-Tech and Avery Labeling before retiring to Grand Junction in 1991. He loved Grand Junction and all the natural beauty that the area is blessed with. He had a passion to fish on the Grand Mesa and camp on the Colorado Monument and listen to Bluegrass Music. Pop was surrounded by wonderful friends and neighbors who helped him out and offered love and support in the later years of his life. He considered these friends as a part of his family. The last two weeks of Bob's life were spent in the Grand Junction VA Hospital. The caregivers were compassionate and caring as Pop entered the final stages of his life. Our family wants to express our thanks for the care that Pop received while at the VA Hospital and the Community Living Center. Services are scheduled for Thursday, December 6th, 1:00 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery of Western Colorado. Palisade Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
