He gave me a chance to be an athletic official as a 19 year old kid. He taught me the phrase. Who you know got you into the room. What you do when you are in the room determines if you stay. I learned to be a good sports official and to prove I belonged there, and that philosophy I have followed to be the best teacher I could be. I will miss you Rest of the story: I knew his wife and I had to work my butt off to make it to being a High School Basketball official that made Mr. Greene proud. Thanks Charlie

Mr. Greene was far more than a mentor. To many of us he was like a father. I would run many personal things across him through the years. He was always honest and open and always had a listening ear. He gave sound advice whether you agreed or not. I will personally miss him so very much as well as the personal support. More than a Great Official in my eyes, he was a Great Person and above all a Great Man. Praying for comfort for his family. Thanks so very much for allowing Charlie to be a part of so many of our lives. Thanks so very much Charlie and may you RIP.

Our sincere condolences to the family of Charles Greene. Mr. Greene was a wonderful neighbor, always welcoming & encouraging. We will miss his smiling face. May Jehovah sustain the family at this time of such great loss, & know that Mr. Greene is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him & bring him back again (Acts 24:15).

For many of us who started officiating in the 80's and 90's Charles was a role model. There are today many officials both at the High School, College and Pro levels who owe a great deal of their training to Charles some who today still hand down to their new officials his words of wisdom.
