Charles W. "Curley" Greenfield passed away May 28, 2002 at a local assisted living center. He was born June 18, 1916 in Pueblo, Colorado. He was a graduate of South High School in Denver, Colorado, and attended Denver University majoring in business. He met Mildred or "Gene" when she was his secretary, and they were married December 12, 1947. Gene preceded him in death in 1998.

They had 3 daughters, Jamie Linville, Chari Hicks, and Pam Betts. He also had a son from a previous marriage, Wesley Dean. He has 8 grandchildren: Michael Linville, Tammy Linville, Sarah Linville, John M. Betts, Jr., Rebecca Betts, Christina Hicks, Brian Hicks and Nathan Hicks. He also has five great grandchildren: Rose and Ashley Linville, Mason and Tyler Robinson, and Priscilla Betts.

Curley and Gene were married at Broadway Baptist in Denver, December 12, 1947 and attended there for many years. They were part of the Argus Sunday School class and maintained many life long friends from that fellowship. When they moved to Colorado Springs in 1966, they joined First Baptist Church and became loyal members of the Christian Workers Sunday School Class. The friends they made from Christian Workers were also very precious to Curley and he never stopped loving to be around them. He also attended Covenant Presbyterian Church with his daughter Chari. His smile and sweet spirit blessed everyone he met.

Curley loved people and one of his favorite pastimes was fishing at the Carroll Lakes cabin which he did as often as possible and shared with as many of his friends and relatives as he could. No summer was complete without heading up to the cabin for fun, fishing, food and fellowship.

Curley spent his last years at Alterra Clarebridge where he made many friends, both with other residents and with the wonderful, caring staff.

Curley was a joyous, caring and humorous man who always, even to the end, had a smile, a twinkle in his eye, and a laugh that always came tumbling out whenever anyone was around. He will be missed.

A memorial service will be held at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 2845 Parliment Drive, Colorado Springs, CO, on Friday, June 21 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to First Baptist Church or Covenant Presbyterian Church.
