Larry Greene, 59, a well-liked football coach at Central Bucks East and a highly respected teacher, lost his eight-year battle with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow, on Thursday morning.
"He was a devoted coach, teacher, husband, and father," said his wife, Vivian. "Nothing meant more to him than his kids, his grandkids, his players, and his students."
Mr. Greene was in charge of the Patriots for 16 seasons and was a special-education teacher at C.B. East since 1980. His three stints as the school's head coach were from 1987 to 1991, 1996 to 2004, and 2006 to 2007. He returned as an assistant, last serving in the 2011 season.
