Tracey R. Greenwood

HOLDEN/STERLING - Tracey R. Greenwood, 59, formerly of Sterling, passed away peacefully at home with his loving family by his side on Friday, August 25, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Elyria, Ohio and raised in Chelmsford, Tracey was the son of the late Joseph and Betty Jane (Chester) Greenwood and lived 32 years in Sterling before moving to Holden in 2016.

Tracey graduated from Chelmsford High School, Mount Wachusett Community College and University of Massachusetts - Lowell with his bachelors degree in criminal justice. He worked over 30 years in security management which included over 20 years at Digital Equipment Corp., several years at State Street Bank in Boston and the last 13 years at Amgen Inc. in West Greenwich, Rhode Island. He also worked part-time as a dispatcher for the Sterling and Princeton police departments.

His life was centered on his faith and family. He was a member of St. Richard of Chichester in Sterling and enjoyed coaching for the Sterling youth basketball, baseball, and softball programs. Tracey never met a stranger that he didn't soon consider a friend. He was engaging, outgoing and enjoyed the company of others. Tracey was proud of his children and will be remembered as a devoted husband, father and grandfather.

He will be affectionately remembered and missed by his beloved wife of 36 years, Patricia A. (LaPan) Greenwood; his son, David J. Greenwood and his wife, Mirissa of Leominster; his daughter, Lisa A. Almonte and her husband, Michael of Rutland; a sister, Cindy Kelley and her husband, James of Ohio; a brother, Timothy Greenwood and his wife Darlene of Pelham, NH, five grandchildren including twins, Emma and Olivia, Natalie, Alexandra and Melanie; nephews and nieces.
