John M. Greene, of Scituate, formerly of Quincy, died suddenly on October 22, 2016. Johns loving family was the most important part of his life. He adored his three children and they in turn had the good grace to benefit from his larger than life personality. He was the owner/operator of ETS International Limousine Service and was very proud of the business he built. An active guy, he enjoyed boating, skiing, walks with his dog Jack and attended countless Boston Bruins games. Charity was close to his heart and he was always willing to help others, especially Cerebral Palsy of MA and the Lupus Foundation. He will be remembered for his positive attitude, upbeat energy and his ability to light up a room. He was grateful for everything in his life which is summed up in a quote he used quite often; You couldnt give me three wishes, I wouldnt know what to do with them. Beloved father of Ashley Greene of Boston, Cory Greene of Dorchester, and Kelsey Greene of Quincy. Former husband of Maureen Zerfoss of Scituate. Loving son of the late John J. Greene and Nancy J. (McQuade). Cherished brother of Kevin Greene of East Bridgewater, Peter Greene of Whitman, Donna Hatfield of Braintree, and the late Stephen Greene. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend the visiting hours on Friday 4 - 8 p.m. in the Keohane Funeral Home, 785 Hancock St., Quincy. A celebration of life service will be held in the funeral home at 9:15 a.m. Saturday prior to the funeral Mass in St. Anns Church, Quincy at 10 a.m. Burial in Blue Hill Cemetery, Braintree. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of John may be made to American Cancer Society, 30 Speen Street, Framingham, MA 01701. See or call 1-800-Keohane for directions and online condolences.

it seems so surreal and beyond tragic that you've been taken from us all. You touched the lives of so many people and did so much good for so many, myself included,who are now heartbroken over your passing. Your larger than life personality always lit up any room and you brought a smile to everybody you came into contact with. I consider myself lucky to have been able to call you friend and beyond lucky to have been a part of your ETS family. You are already sorely missed and I'll never forget your kindness and friendship. I can't believe I'm saying these words but Rest In Peace Johnny. May God bless you and watch over your soul. Deepest Sympathy to your children, your brothers Peter and Kevin and to your entire family. Farewell Friend.

Of course my condolences go to all the family. He was loved and will be missed. There are so many memories but I remember going to a lot of Disney on Ice shows which he always made me a part of. We might have been family just thru marriage but he always made me feel like a real member of his family. Will always think of you and smile. You are loved and will be missed.
