WACO, Texas (April 29, 2014) -- An open memorial service for Dr. Daniel Greene, senior lecturer in history at Baylor University, will be held at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, in Miller Chapel on the Baylor campus. Dr. Rosalie Beck will officiate.
Dr. Greene passed away April 23 at a local hospital at the age of 62.
Born at Ft. Belvoir in Washington, D.C., Dr. Greene attended Notre Dame International High School in Rome, Italy, received a B.A. in English from Georgetown University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in history from the University of Texas at Austin. During his long teaching career, he held positions at Williams College in Williamstown, Mass., Tidewater Community College in Norfolk, Va., McLennan Community College in Waco and Baylor University.
In 1987, he married a fellow University of Texas graduate, Dr. Joan E. Supplee, and they built their life together around their mutual love for history, stray animals, traveling in Latin America, and hiking and camping in the high country. Dr. Greene spent the last weekend of his life working and enjoying the land he loved in San Jeronimo, N.M.
He is survived by his wife Joan; brother Jim and family from Alexandria, Va.; sisters Mary Greene Cramer and family from Brattleboro, Vt., and Rebecca Greene Kunz and family from Carmel, Ind.; and many colleagues, friends and students across the country.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made in Dr. Daniel Greene’s name to one of the following: the department of history at Baylor University, the Nature Conservancy, Fuzzy Friends Rescue or a charity of your choice.
