John Ray Greensage was born February 12, 1945 in Pasadena, Texas to John Robert & Rosie (Garlic) Greensage. He worked for over thirty-five years as the only licensed pest control operator for Houston I.S.D, as well as, heading up the water department, asbestos control and fire extinguisher maintenance. John was in charge of making sure that every school in the Houston I.S.D. was properly maintained in those areas. This meant being on call twenty-four hours a day to take care of any problems that arose.

Following his retirement, John found great joy in taking care of his vegetable garden and numerous fruit trees, as well as, his cattle. He also enjoyed the typical country recreations of fishing and hunting. Most of all, John was a family man. He loved each member of his family dearly and had just celebrated the arrival of his only great grandchild before his death. John was a devout Catholic and a long-time member of St. Leo the Great Catholic Church. He and his wife had lived in Centerville since 1992. He passed away at his home on June 13, 2018. John was preceded in death by both of his parents and sister, Jean Mensi.

Surviving family members include wife of fifty-eight years, Rose Greensage of Centerville; son & daughter-in-law, Clint and Katherine Greensage of Galveston; grandson, Peyton Ray Greensage and his girlfriend, Yasmin Zapata, of Conroe, great grandson, August Ray Greensage and siblings, Irene Hogue of Houston, Charles Greensage of Houston, Diane Rains of Crosby, Pat Greensage of Houston and Karen Adkinson of Crosby.
