John Burton Greene of Grahamsville, NY passed away on January 25, 2024.  He was 57.

John was born on February 6, 1966 in Bayshore, NY to Thomas Greene and Meryl Redlein.  

After high school, he worked various jobs in the Sayville area and eventually followed his sister to Upstate New York.  Following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Mark Redlein and his Uncle Burt Redlein, John settled into a career of carpentry. He excelled at wood construction, woodworking, furniture making and all aspects of home remodeling. John was always ready to lend a helping hand and never turned away a friend. He was both a cat and a dog lover. He also was a grill master and legend has it that John could roast a mean pig barbeque.
