Michael Dale Greenlief

August 16, 1964 ~ April 29, 2020 (age 55)


Michael Dale Greenlief, 55, was a resident of Ashtabula, Ohio most of his life. This wonderful man passed into glory with his Savior on Wednesday, April 29, 2020.

Born on August 16th, 1964, in Canton, Ohio he was the son of the late Dale Greenlief (dad) and Violet Greenlief (mom).

Many of you who knew dad knew that he was a giving man. He loved to be with family and friends.  He worked for many years at a local scrap yard where he found his love of “scrapping metals”. Dad was a very compassionate, loving, and humorous man. He loved to have fun and make everyone he encountered laugh.

He was a lifelong Pittsburgh Steelers fan. Dad enjoyed shooting a game of pool, playing horseshoes and cards (Spades).  In addition, he loved to watch Jeopardy, alien shows, and anything on Animal Channel and History Channel.

Dad is survived by his wife, Patty Greenlief of Ashtabula, his children, Mike Greenlief (Jody), Melissa Greenlief (Keith), Dale Greenlief, Kendra Ryan (Donald). Dad also is survived by his sisters and brother (Tina Forbes, Emma Higley, Karen Rohm-Wainwright, Shirley Greenlief and Ken Greenlief). He has 11 grandchildren.

The calling hours will be held at Edgewood Alliance Church at 5pm on Thursday, May 7th, at 3137 East Center St Conneaut, Ohio 44030. The service will be given by his son, Rev. Michael Greenlief. Following the calling hours, we will have a funeral service for family members only.

Because the COVID-19 pandemic and recommendations from the state of Ohio, the family is asking that only healthy family members attend the funeral. If you have mask, we ask that you wear it out of consideration of others. In addition, we are asking that no child that is 10 years or younger attend. Finally, we are inviting immediate family to stay afterwards to have a family meal. Edgewood Alliance Church will be providing the meal and refreshments.

On August 16th, 2020, the family would like to invite all family and friends to a Celebration of Life Service for dad. More information will be coming closer to the date.
