In memory of
Luther Fredrick Greer Jr.
Luther Fredrick Greer, Jr. 54, passed away on April 15, 2017, at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, TN. Luther was known for his love for his wife and family. He had spent everyday with Julie for almost forty years. They had a relationship that very few people ever experience. Theirs was the epitome of a great marriage. He also had that same abiding love for his family and he cherished them all. Luther was also well-know for his willingness to help others. No amount of pain or sickness of his own would keep him from helping someone in need. Whether it was his love, his material things, or his labors of love, they were all offered freely. In addition to helping friends and neighbors, Luther was a great friend to the Super Pro Wrestling Association and the World Combat Elite Wrestling. He enjoyed being a part of these groups and they were like his extended family. Luther was one of those rare people who lit up a room when he entered. His fun-loving nature and constant smile earned him many friends. He was loved by all who knew him and will be greatly missed. Services will be 2:00 PM, Tuesday, April 18, 2017, at Charity Church of Jesus Christ in Chalybeate with Bro. Tim Watson and Bro. Bradley Watson officiating.
