In Memory of John Greene


On behalf of the City of Rossland, we extend our deepest condolences on the passing of John Greene, a dedicated former City Councillor from 2014-2018.

John’s unwavering commitment to our community and genuine affection for Rossland have left an indelible mark on us all. His legacy extends beyond the council chambers; as the co-owner of Rossland Hardware with his wife, Cate, he served two terms as President of the Rossland Chamber of Commerce and contributed to the boards of the Rossland Museum and the Rossland Light Opera Players.

John’s integrity and ethical approach to public service were evident throughout his tenure. John was also a master storyteller who cherished our town and its ski hill.

As we bid farewell to John, we hold dear his humility, honesty, and profound love for both the people and the spirit of Rossland. Our hearts go out to his family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched. May his memory continue to inspire our community.
