Robert William Greenwood

Robert William Greenwood, known affectionately as Bobo, passed away on May 19, 2024, at Levine Dickson Hospice House, leaving behind a legacy of love and kindness that will be cherished by all who had the privilege of knowing him. Born on June 2, 1936, in Oklahoma City to his parents Bernice and Buster Greenwood, Robert was a beacon of light in the lives of his family and friends.

Robert dedicated over 30 years of his life to GMAC, working in various locations across the United States including Oklahoma, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, and California. His commitment and hard work were evident to all who crossed paths with him during his career.

Beyond his professional life, Robert will be remembered for his culinary skills especially during the holidays when he would delight everyone with his homemade pies. His generosity extended beyond the kitchen as well; crafting wire crosses was one of his favorite hobbies which he shared with countless individuals including the nurses who cared for him during his final days.

Known for his kind heart and willingness to lend a helping hand whenever needed, Robert touched the lives of many with his warm personality. Following a brief illness and in a weakened state, Robert William Greenwood peacefully departed from this world.

Robert is preceded in death by daughters Sonya Greenwood and Stacy Monteith,
brothers Tommy Greenwood and Sammy Greenwood; and sister Florence Fringer.

In mourning his loss, yet celebrating his life are his wife Sharon Greenwood; their daughter Vicki Ratliff and her husband Rick; their granddaughter Shelbi Mangini and her husband Tony along with their daughter Sophie; grandson Robert Blake Ratliff and his wife Delaney; granddaughter Anna Garcia and her husband Luis along with their daughter Skylar; granddaughter Abby Gokhman and her wife Katya; son-in-law John Monteith and his wife Judy; brothers Richard Greenwood and his wife Joan, Jerry Greenwood (and his late wife Orena), Alex Greenwood and his wife Lanelle; sisters-in-law Bernice Greenwood and Carolyn Greenwood; and brother-in-law Gary Stillwell and his wife Pam. Additionally, Robert is survived by many loving nieces, nephews and extended family that he and Sharon have adopted over the years!
