God saw you getting tired,

when a cure was not to be. So

 He wrapped his arms around you and

 He whispered, "Come to me".

 You didn't deserve what you went

 through, so he gave you needed rest.

 God's garden must be beautiful,

      HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST

                       Frances & Kathleen Coelho

 

 

It is with deepest sorrow that this is for the love of my life, Robert James Greenwell, 48, known as "Bo" to those closest to him, and Hunny Bunny to me. He was born in Honolulu and raised in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, February 10, 1969. God decided that Bo's work was done here on Earth and called him home, on Sunday, January 7, 2018. God must have needed him urgently, for He took him so fast.  Preceding him in death, his father Bill Lloyd and a niece, Jennifer Lloyd. Those here to, carry him in thier hearts are his wife Kimberly Adams Greenwell of High Point, NC, the children Jessica Greenwell, Sable Townsed, Brittany Greenwell, and Dawson Whiteman. His family being from Des Moines, Iowa, his mother Elizabeth Greenwell, and siblings William Lloyd, Charles Lloyd, and Katherine Greenwell. Bo will be missed greatly by the extended family members. John and Carolyn Adams, David, Gina, Kristen and Kyle Adams; Jeff, Deanna, Hannah and Colin Ragan; and Taylor, Casey, Bailey, and Lynn Lloyd. So many others, not enough ink to write them all down.

Robert worked many years as a diesel mechanic and had many friends in the business. He will be missed for his witty comments, his attention to detail as well as his incredible talent to be able to fix almost anything with an engine. At least to get it running to take it to where it needed more attention. His work ethic was unlike anything I or they have seen. He truly believed in "doing a job right, the first time".

My Bo enjoyed everything from working on his Willy Jeeps, riding dirt bikes with the boys, old and young alike, many camping trips, vacations on the beach, ski trips, the family adventure to the Caribbean, and our latest adventures of "Zooming". Of course, we all know his love of food, from Holiday gatherings, "left-overs were the best" he would say, and our weekly trips to the Chinese Buffet. Oh how he LOVED rice! It's a "Hawaiian thing" he would say.

A Celebration of Life service will be held on Saturday, February 10, 2018, 11 am, at Faith Church in Kernersville, NC. Light refreshments will be served in the gym for those who would like to reminisce and swap stories with family and friends.
