JOHN J. GREENWOOD John's journey to the Lord began March 26th. He was preceded in death by parents, John and Alice Greenwood, survived by his sister Maryalice Rios and niece Nicole Donahue. John was born in Philadelphia on September 21st, 1957. He grew up and graduated in Levittown, Pennsylvania. He joined the US Marine Corps in 1978. A leave was granted so he could care for his mother. After her death, he lived and worked in New Jersey. When John moved to Santa Fe, he quickly embraced the culture and harmonized with the community. He was enlightened by all genres of music and had a huge affection for sports. John was an easy going man and loved life to the fullest. Those of us who had the luck to "touch base" with him can be sure he is "safe at home." Service Memorial will be held Friday, May 16th at 12:45 at the Santa Fe National Cemetery.
