Joseph Denny "Pickle" Greenwell, 65, of Bardstown, passed away Monday July 17, 2023 at his residence with his devoted wife by his side. He was born November 30, 1957 in Louisville and was a mechanical specialist at American Greetings and retired in 2017.
He was a devoted husband and family man that enjoyed spending time with his daughters and six grandchildren, who made his world complete. He loved the outdoors and could often be found beside a pond fishing, horseback riding, hunting or creating memories with his buddies at Old Lick Farm in Bradfordsville. He was more than an avid sports enthusiast, who cheered on many teams including the Kentucky Wildcats and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Pickle was a tenacious storyteller who captivated and entertained his audience. His MG convertible could often be seen riding through the streets or winding backroads with the top down and the music up. He was the type of man who would give you the shirt off his back if it was needed or drop everything to lend a helping hand. A stranger to none and a friend to all.
He was Catholic by faith and a member of St. Joseph Church. He was a member of Knights of Columbus, Relay for Life in Nelson County, St. Joseph Men's Club, Loretto Men's Club, and a Guthrie Opportunity Center volunteer. He was a Navy Veteran.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Hubert Hinkle Greenwell and Mary Lena Yates Greenwell; siblings, Judith (David) Cassell, Becky (Tommy) Kappel, Ronnie Greenwell, and Edna Greenwell.
He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Peggy Hurst Greenwell of Bardstown; two daughters, Kate (Brandon) Childers and Jenny (Jamie) Newton both of Bardstown; six grandchildren, Lila Childers, Kipton Childers, Cooper Childers, Graham Newton, Hudson Newton, and Tripp Newton; and siblings, Sandy (Bobby) Schaefer, Jimmy (Linda) Greenwell, Cathy (Mark) Feldkamp, and Terry (Woody) Wood; several nieces and nephews; and many beloved friends.
His funeral service will be 10 am Friday July 21, 2023 at Barlow Funeral Home, with cremation to follow. Fr. Bill Hammer will officiate. Visitation will be 3 pm to 8 pm Thursday July 20 and 8:30 am to 10 am Friday July 21 at Barlow Funeral Home. A Prayer Service will be held at 5:30 pm.
Memorial contributions may go to Loretto Men's Club and/or Guthrie Opportunity Center.
