Obituary for Edward Carl Greenhood

Ed was born January 18, 1924 in San Francisco, CA. His early education was there and he later received a BA in Marine Biology from Oregon St. Univ. Ed’s first employment was with Calif. Dept. of Fish & Game at the Fishery’s Biology Lab at Terminal Island in San Pedro, CA. It was in nearby Long Beach where he met and married Johnnye Marie Harrison. Two daughters, Joan Greenhood (Angione) and Janet (Albano) were born to them. Early in Ed’s career, he was elected to go to Brazil with a core of biologists to spend two years there to assist Brazil with their fishery problems. He took his family (wife and 2 teenage girls) and it was a rich experience for them all. While in Brazil, Ed spent quite a bit of time in Rome (headquarters for the fishery core). He could have had an assignment in Rome but with daughters soon at the marriage stage, he felt he should get them back to the U.S. for American son-in-laws. As life would have it, they both are married to Italian-American husbands! Several years after Ed returned from Brazil, he was appointed Chief of Marine Fisheries, headquartered in Sacramento where he served until he retired. Ed had met his Savior while attending an Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Long Beach. Since that time he faithfully served his Lord at: Rio De Janeiro Baptist Church; Arcade Baptist (Sacramento); Calvary Bible (Grass Valley); and lastly, Valley Springs Presbyterian Church (Roseville). In all these he served as Sunday School Superintendent, teacher, deacon, or anywhere needed. Probably nowhere was he as effective as in Grass Valley Golf and Country Club. Ed had a group of golfers, some in their seventies, who embraced Christ. Ed is survived by his daughters, Joan and Jan, his four grandchildren: Chelsea Albano, Chris Albano, Andrew McGill and Brittany South as well as three great grandchildren: Ryder Albano, Scarlett Albano and Luca South. Ed passed away on January 9, 2018 a week shy of the young age of 94.
