Obituary for Mitchell H. Greeson, Jr.

Mitchell H. Greeson, Jr. of Kennesaw died Saturday, Aug. 4. He was 73.

He grew up in Smyrna, married his high school sweetheart and was a part of the fabric of his hometown -- from church member to little league coach to Booster Club President – he was a devoted member of the community. He was preceded in death by his mother Aileen and father Mitchell Sr. He is survived by his wife of more than 51 years Ellen Greeson, his daughter Trish Greeson Fox Hardy (Brent) of Marietta, his son Mitchell H. Greeson III "Tripp" (Joy) of Marietta, and his brother Jerry Greeson of Signal Mountain, Tenn., and sister, Carol Edwards (Byron) of Roswell.

Mitchell Jr. served his country honorably in the 3rd Air Wing in El Toro, Ca., in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam era. His professional career ranged from Grove International Crane Company to JLG industries to starting Tri-Lift of Georgia, but he was defined more by his actions and his family than his job.

He was a loving father to two kids. A caring grandfather to seven grandkids and their spouses-- Kristina Tucker (Zack), Travis Fox (Tara), Pierce Fox, McKenzie Fox, Jed Fox, Mitchell H. Greeson IV "Drew" and Merrill Greeson. He was a great-grandfather to two great-grandkids -- Nathan and Rob Tucker.

And he was always a devoted husband to his high school sweetheart, lifetime partner, and best friend Ellen.

He lived for his family, and that love and devotion has lived on and will continue into the future because of the example Granddad set. Instead of flowers, the family asks for contributions to the Special Olympics (www.give.specialolympics.org). Carmichael Funeral Home in Smyrna (www.carmichaelcares.com) has all the details about the service, which is set for Wednesday, at 2 p.m. in the sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church in Smyrna.
