Carl Nathan Greene, a retired FBI budget analyst, died after he lapsed into a coma Nov. 21 at Good Samaritan Hospital while being treated for respiratory, heart and kidney failure. The Severn resident was 49.
Born in Baltimore and raised in Waverly, he attended Abbottston Elementary School and was a 1979 Lake Clifton High School graduate.
Family members said that while he was a student, he worked part time for the Social Security Administration in Woodlawn.
As a young high school graduate, he was hired as a clerk in the FBI's finance division in Washington.
"With an acuity for numbers, quick wit and a can‐do attitude, he rose quickly through the bureau's ranks to become a Grade 14 budget analyst and serve as an equal employment opportunity counselor for the finance division," said his sister, Deborah Greene of Baltimore.
She said that declining health forced her brother to retire two years ago. He purchased his "dream house" in Severn and enjoyed watching the Food Channel, cooking, and entertaining family and friends, she said.
Mr. Greene also enjoyed travel and jazz. He was a dog fancier.
"He was a wonderfully caring and generous big brother," said his sister. "He always watched over me — from childhood, when I followed him everywhere, to adulthood, when I no longer needed protection but still adored and idolized him."
Services were held Wednesday at Faith Presbyterian Church.
In addition to his sister, survivors include two brothers, Randolph Brooks of Fort Meade and Kedrick Greene of Highland, Calif.; two other sisters, Sheryon McLean and Sa‐Lee Robinson, both of Baltimore; and a companion, Donna Judge of Savannah, Ga.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
