Obituary Condolences

WILMINGTON -- Joel Nathan Greene, 55, a resident of Merrill Drive died Sunday, March 5, 2006, in West Halifax from injuries sustained in a logging accident. Joel was born in Bennington on Dec. 23, 1950.

He is the son of Robert and Evelyn (Canedy) Greene. Joel grew up in Wilmington, graduating in 1968, and then attended Keene State College. Throughout his high school years he worked at his family’s Esso station and after college operated his own service station in West Lebanon, N.H.

Joel’s love of the outdoors stimulated his interest in the career choices he chose to pursue; logging for himself, working on commercial fishing boats in Alaska and as a veneer buyer for David R. Webb Co. His wealth of knowledge and experiences brought him to New York City, where he worked for the Union of Operating Engineers, and eventually came back to Wilmington, where he established Greene’s Power Equipment and Rock Maple Racing. Joel loved being in the woods. His passion for hunting, fishing and snowmobiling was infectious and his talent respected by the best.

Joel leaves his wife, Sandra Bolduc of Wilmington; their children, Hannah and Ben Greene of Wilmington ; his parents, Robert and Evelyn Greene of Wilmington; his brother, John and his wife, Beth Greene; a brother, Peter Greene of Wilmington; a brother, Robert, and his wife, Robin of Bennington; a sister, Susan and her husband, Robert Cann of Bedford, Mass.; his father-in-law, Roland Bolduc, and brother-in-law, Dan Bolduc of West Dover; and a brother-in-law, Steven Bolduc of Wilmington. Joel will also be missed by many nieces and nephews,

Our hearts are open with strength, light and love in celebration of Joel’s life. He has a bond with each of you; for he has uniquely touched all of our lives as a loving husband and father with an endearing sense of pride for family and friendships that will be trusted with fondness in our hearts always.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, March 10, at 11 a.m. at Social Lodge No. 38 F&AM followed by refreshments and fellowship at the Old Red Mill in Wilmington. In honor of Joel’s dedication to Masonry and love of the outdoors, memorial gifts may be made to Social Lodge No. 38, which will establish a scholarship fund to send local children to the Green Mountain Conservation Camp to foster good sportsmanship and outdoor skills in youth.
