First &quot;ran&quot; into Coach Greeno during his summer all-comer track and field meets in Sioux Falls during the late 60's. As our school did not have a track, we would come to practice events during the summer. He was a tremendous gift to the area track and field community and his family should be very proud of all his contributions.<br /><br /><br /><br />Freeman Academy ('71)<br /><br />

I just read of Coach Greeno's passing.
My heart hurt.
Coach Greeno was my Coach, 1968-69 at
Lincoln High School. I was Sophomore.
In only that one year, before we moved away, he instilled great values in me, that 15-16 year olds need to hear and see. Honesty, Integrity, Humility, Perseverance and Self Worth. Many times in the past 48 years I have called on these values.
That is what was great about him to me, he was right with us, in the heat of the moment. Whether in practice or competition.
I have memories of a snow packed Winter country road, jogging, talking. He knew my race was the 440. He would explain that winning was great, but giving your very best, that is what you would treasure the most.
He was right.
I did not know that he was the 440 State Champion in 1946, until I read it today. He never mentioned it to me. Humility practiced.
I had for years wanted to tell him and now his family,
Thank You, thank you very much.
May Almighty God, keep him in His Memory, and comfort his family now and in the future.

It was a sad day when I learned of Coach Greeno's passing. My family was so lucky to have this kind man be our coach. We learned so much more than track and field from Coach Greeno. He taught us respect, compassion and dedication to things beyond ourselves.

My brothers, Mack and Vance Butler, and my sister Anne, and I were so fortunate to be part of a Rich Greeno team. I just hope Coach took a stop watch with him so that he can shout out the splits to Mack and Vance who are up there waiting for him.

My thoughts are with the Greeno family, especially my team mate Mark, at this time.

Thanks again, Coach.

SO many good memories came flooding back on learning of Coach Greeno's passing. He was an incredible man. I owe so much to his influence as do my brothers, Mack and Vance Butler and my sister Anne. We all got so much out of being part of a Rich Greeno team.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Greeno family as they deal with his passing. I wish I had learned of this in time - I would have done all I could to be at the service. I hope Coach Greeno has a stop watch with him so he can shout out splits to Mack and Vance.

Thanks again, Coach, for everything.
