Wayne Greene

Wayne Greene, 75, of Fall Branch, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, July 10, 2022 at Johnson City Medical Center.  “Daddy Wayne”, as he was affectionately called, loved playing golf and raising Black Angus cattle.  He loved his family, but his favorite hobby was taking his daughter “Pearl” to La Carreta.


Wayne attended Sullivan High School in Kingsport.  After years of living in Atlanta, GA, Dallas, TX, and New Orleans, LA, he returned to this area.  He opened and ran 93 Video and Tanning for 23 years.  Wayne was a giving, caring and selfless soul who did not tell anyone how to live life.  He merely lived his life and let you watch him do it.


Wayne was preceded in death by his grandparents, Clara Ann Kern Allen and Oscar Samuel Allen and his parents Lorraine Allen Doty and D.A. Greene. 


He leaves to mourn his passing, his daughter Chelsea “Pearl” Herald, his granddaughter, Sophie Herald, cousins Doris Sandidge and Andrea Roberts Lawson, and many dear and longtime friends from around the country.


Rest well Daddy Wayne.  Job well done.


The family will receive friends from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., Friday, July 15, 2022 at Hamlett-Dobson Funeral Home, Fall Branch. Graveside service will follow at 3:00 p.m. at East Lawn Memorial Park.


In lieu of flowers, contributions to any local animal shelter would be appreciated.

To plant memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of Wayne Greene, please visit our flower store.


I have many fond memories of Wayne. He and his friends at Wrangler enjoy a lot of good times. We have great memories. I will miss him, and look forward to seeing him again. I know you will miss him as we will.

Wayne was more than just a business owner in fall branch. Was a friend to all who entered, always enjoyed our banter back and forth. No matter what our conversation always left with a smile. Lost a good one outta the Branch. Thoughts and prayers for the family.

Dear family, I'm so very sorry to hear of Wayne's passing on. He was such a nice man. Enjoyed many conversations and much laughter with him at the video store. After many years, i did get to see and talk to him for a few minutes, and he asked about my son, who was a frequent customer in those days. We talked about being grandparents, now, and he spoke of his family with such pride and happiness 😊 He will be missed.

"Uncle" Wayne was an integral part of our lives while living in New Orleans. He was so giving of his time and energy and made us laugh all the time. We will always have such great memories. Jim, Linda and Kerri Kuykendall

We are so saddened to hear of Wayne's passing. We would always go and cut up with him at the Video store and still reminisce on some of the wild tales he told. He will be missed. Prayers to his family.
