Bobby “Gene” Greer was born May 17th, 1935 to Furman Greer and Irma “Jim” Streater Greer. He was a graduate of Normangee High School. He loved to hunt, fish, dance and drive through the pasture watching his horses as he told his grandchildren and great grandchildren stories. Gene had many friends and there were always people stopping by to visit and listen to his stories as he told them with a smile. His love of riding horses and scootin a boot carried over in to trail rides and he enjoyed spending time with friends and family. He was content to sit for hours and just admire the land and all of GOD’s creatures.

Gene lived a very full life and married his high school sweetheart Naomi Copeland in 1955. He was a wonderful husband, father, son, grandfather and friend. He was the life of the party and will be missed terribly but he is dancing with the angels and making everyone in heaven smile.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Furman and Irma, sister; Virginia Martin, brothers; Rex, Asel, Streater and Skeezix Greer.

He is survived by his wife Naomi; two daughters Shirley Baker and Cathy Palomarez and husband Eddie; two sons Kenneth Ray Greer and wife Leigh Ann and Bobby Keith Greer; a sister Ann Greer Smith and husband O.E. Smith; a brother Billy Jack “Sonny” Greer and wife Billie Lou; seven grandchildren Jennifer Wolford and husband David, Milton “Shorty” Keefer, David Keefer, Dana Greer, Nikki Greer, Savannah Palomarez and Joshua Palomarez; 5 great grandchildren Peyton Wolford, Cannin Keefer, Rylee Puentes, Mackinley Keefer and his special “buddy” Izabella “Bella” Wolford.
