William Levett Greenlee, 77, was called home to be with the Lord on Monday (Feb. 5, 2018) surrounded by his family in his home in Montana Mines. William was born Oct. 26, 1940 to the late Alex Sr. and Lovenlia Greenlee.
He was a graduate of East Fairmont High School and attended Fairmont State College. He was an engineer and retired from Westinghouse/North American Phillips. Deacon Greenlee was a member of Morning Star Baptist Church where he served as the chairman of the Deacon Board and treasurer of the Sunday School. William was an incredibly intelligent man who valued education and pursued it throughout his lifetime.
In his younger years, he enjoyed race car driving and could often be found working under the hood of his latest creation. He loved his family and enjoyed spending time with them, especially his grandchildren. He was also an avid fisherman and hunter and pursued that passion across the country.
William is survived by his daughter, Tammy (Rolando) Brown; two sons, Mustafa (Akosua) Ali and Frank (Teresa) Greenlee; nine grandchildren, Anthony, Tevon, Sierra, Alex, Colston, Nathaniel, Jalen, Ayden and Briauna; two great-grandchildren, Neisha and Zekai; his sister, Edna Jones; and the mother of his children, Jinger Black and their stepfather, Leslie Black.
