Obituary for Richard W. Greenberg

His Legacy… Richard William Greenberg, 70, passed away November 23, 2018. He was born on December 30, 1947, in Detroit, Michigan to William Greenberg and Helen (Clifton) Greenberg. Richard married the love of his life, Carol Gavie, on June 17, 1975, in Detroit, Michigan. He will be remembered as being a very positive, upbeat, determined, and strong-willed person with a rapier wit. Richard was an accomplished builder and master craftsman with gifted creativity in all things he constructed. He was a self-made man who could build, repair, or renovate anything expertly. He designed and built his lifelong dream home for his wife, Carol, where they lived for the last 26 years. He was an outdoorsman and a classic/muscle car, vintage motorcycle, and camper trailer enthusiast. Richard was an Army Vietnam veteran, serving our country from 1967-1969. He was a patriot, proud of our flag, and of America. Richard was an amazing man, phenomenal husband, and sincere friend. He enjoyed spending time with his family and those he called friends, as it was very important to him. He will be forever missed.

His Family… Richard will be missed by his wife; Carol; his sister, Sherry (Steve) Hipsky; his nephew and niece, Todd (Wendy) Hipsky, and Michelle (John) Brozanski; great nieces and nephews, Jessica, Stephanie, Mackenzie, Liam, and Nolan; and brother-in-laws, Mike (Sheri) Gavie, Gary (Danna) Gavie, and John Gavie; nephews, James and Jason Gavie, and their families.
