Obituary

Dr. Gordon Rex Greener, DC, of Broken Bow, passed away February 1st 2022 at 77 years old. His death came as a shock to his family, friends and loved ones. He insisted that he would never retire and he managed to see clients within a week of his death. Doc really enjoyed helping people.

He spent a year in Alaska with his cousin, and then served a mission for the LDS church in 1964-5 in South Dakota and Canada.

He was a photographer in his early career and owned a store called Gordons Foto Facets in Livermore California. He was also a Shaklee distributor and hosted nutritional seminars in his home. He spent time as a salesman and professional dog trainer while going to college.

He became a Chiropractor in 1982 and moved his family to Valliant, Oklahoma to open his first clinic. He eventually moved his clinic to Idabel and practiced there until 1995. He then moved his practice to Texas until returning to Oklahoma in 2007. His family and friends were thrilled to welcome him back.

In September 2013, Gordon married Sara Lea “Sally” Henrie. They were eternally sealed in the LDS temple in St. George, Utah on July 23rd 2015.
