Obituary for Richard Max Greeson

Richard Max Greeson, of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, went to be with the Lord on May 16, 2018, after an amazing, fulfilling life of 83 years. He was deeply loved and respected by his family and friends as truly “one of a kind”.

He was born in Calhoun, GA on Jan 9th, 1935 to Wilburn Duane and Edna Pauline Greeson.

Max graduated from Dalton High School in Dalton, GA., where he met and eventually married the love of his life. He enlisted in the United States Army, giving over 20 years to the service of his country. He served with distinction and honor all over the world, attaining to the rank of Chief Warrant Officer 3.

While in the Army, he embarked on a career in aviation. As a pilot, he was deployed to Vietnam for 2 terms, where he received numerous commendations and awards for meritorious service. He completed his Army career as a flight instructor, retiring from the Army in 1973.

Receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Electronics Technology during his time in the military, Max went on to a civilian career in computer technology until he retired in 2003 to Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.

Among many of his hobbies, he was an avid golfer, marksman, gardener, and was a voracious reader. He was also a devoted Christian, husband, father and friend.

Max is predeceased by his parents, and his only brother, Charles D. Greeson.

He is survived by his adored wife of 64 years, Betty, and his loving sons, Richard Michael Greeson of Memphis, TN, and Timothy L. Greeson of Manhattan, NY.
