John David Greenfield, 67, of Wellsboro, passed away on Saturday, June 15, 2019, at Highland Hospital in Rochester, NY. He shared nearly 20 years of marriage with his loving wife Gina M. (Dart) Greenfield, of Wellsboro. He was born on June 28, 1951, in Augusta, Georgia, a son of the late James and Marguerite (Wilcox) Greenfield.
John was employed as a Real Estate Auditor for many years, retiring from both Tioga County and the State of Pennsylvania. He was a veteran, having served in the United States Air Force from 1973-1977. He was an active member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church of Wellsboro. Additionally, he was an avid outdoor enthusiast, enjoying such activities as hiking, biking, camping, tubing, canoeing, and the list goes on. John took great pride in his carpentry work, producing quality projects from furniture to full decks. He was always very active, whether walking, working outside, gardening, or simply fixing anything that was broke. He had an intellectual ability to think outside of the box and was very mechanically inclined. Most importantly, his family always came first and he hardly ever missed a school event for his children or grandchildren. John will be dearly missed by family and friends, described as a father who never quit, even when he was sick.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Gina M. Greenfield, of Wellsboro; five children, Kim (Chad) Earley, of Wellsboro, Leah (Casey) Mosher, of Wellsboro, Mike (Angel) Greenfield, of Wellsboro, Katelynd (Jason) Fairchild, of Blossburg, and Jason (Melissa) Greenfield, of Wellsboro; 12 grandchildren, Riley, Robert, Justin, Serenity, DaWayne, Naleyah, Gabby, Maverick, Deven, Jennifer, Jaci and Junior; two brothers, James (Linda) Greenfield, of Wellsboro, and Stephen (Susan) Greenfield, of Lewisburg; sisters-in-law, Lisa (Joe) Stoddard, of Lawrenceville, and Christine Simpson, of New York; step-father-in-law, Jeff Tracy; several nieces & nephews, and many dear friends.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by an infant son, Patrick, and his parents-in-law, Annette Tracy and Frank Dart.
