Shane Gary Greenup 56, went home to heaven, to his Lord and Savior, Monday January 15, 2024 at home in Conroe, Texas with his wife, children, best friend and his dog ‘Denver’ by his side. He put up a good fight but the cancer won, and took control of his body.
He was born November 24, 1967 to Calvin and Lynda Greenup in Kirksville, MO. In 1978 the family moved back to Montana where he graduated from Florence Christian Academy in 1985. Shane loved sports. He played soccer and basketball. He was an avid player, he also was a die hard Denver Broncos fan and Montana Griz fan.
After High School he joined the US Navy. His job in the Navy was a Operation Specialist (Air Traffic Controller). Two big things he accomplished while he was in the Navy, was his ship the USS John young shot down the oil platform in the Persian Gulf. (1987). Also being chosen sailor of the year (1994).
Four ships he served on, USS John Young, USS Chancellorsville, USS Cowpens, USS Fife. It was a comfort to him to have his brother Scott in the same fleet and battle group while aboard the John Young. Shane had made plans on making the Navy a career but the first round of cancer ended that. The Navy gave him a medical discharge but God gave him 17 more years of life.
He is survived by his parents, Cal and Lynda Greenup of Darby; his wife, Kimberly; three sons, Steven, Derek (Courtney) all of Conroe, TX; son, Garrett of Temecula CA; also two step-sons, Dane and Reece; brothers, Scott (Karen) Skamokawa, WA; Shad (Shauna) of Evans, CO; four grandchildren, Charlotte, Case, Everette, Tuck and lots of nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Shane’s life is going to be held in Conroe TX for friends and family. The date has not been set.
Shane had a tender heart always concerned for others. Growing up in Montana he had a love for the Bitterroot Mountains, in any spare time in his career he would return home to the valley to enjoy them. We will miss you son, but we will see you again. You are at peace and have no more pain!
