ST. ALBANS: Coledon Greenwood, age 59, passed away on March 13, 2022 at the St. Albans Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in St. Albans, VT. Coledon was born on December 17, 1962, in Newport, VT, the son of Lawrence and Barbara (Ashton) Greenwood.
Coledon enjoyed and accepted all people and considered everyone his friend. In his last 12 years of life, Coledon lived with his brother Shayne and wife Linda who was also Coledon’s caregiver. Coledon found joy and happiness spending time at camp, having cook outs, campfires, fishing off the dock and going for boat rides. Coledon found pleasure in the simple things in life, such as playing handheld games, doing word search puzzles, putting puzzles together, coloring, and sitting in a chair at camp watching the water. Coledon made an impression on all he met and will be missed deeply.
He leaves his mother Barbara of Berkshire, brother Rockland and wife Lorraine of Albany, sister Darlene and husband Cortland of Irasburg, sister Cheryl and husband Norman of Richford, sister Carolyn and husband Leonard of Richford, brother Shayne and wife Linda of St. Albans. Coleman is predeceased by his father and brother.
Coledon leaves behind many nieces and nephews including his special nephew Travis and his significant other Samantha. Coledon idolized Travis, and enjoyed spending time with Travis and Samantha playing board games, Yahtzee, cards, fishing, sleepovers, watching movies, boating, and spending time doing what Coledon truly treasured. He appreciated his special niece Jennifer and husband Ron who took him to events like the June Dairy Day Parade, Pizza Putt, sleepovers and out for Cree-mees which he loved and looked forward to; and his special fishing buddies Khloe, Lukas, Quinn, and Maya. Coledon treasured the time spent with his nieces and nephews and would look forward to all the adventures he had with them.
A special thank you the nursing staff and caregivers at Bayada Hospice and St. Albans Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center for their compassion, care, and friendship shown to Coledon.
