Obituary: Emanuel “Manny” Greene

Thursday, 28 November 2013 00:00

Emanuel “Manny” Greene, of Plandome Manor, passed away on November 10, 2013 in his 98th year. Born in the Old Stone House in Hasbrouck, NY, now a landmark and museum, he went on to start a paper and plastic disposable business from the trunk of his car in the 1930’s and  grew it to be the largest firm of its kind in the NY Metropolitan area by the 1960’s.

He was happiest sitting on his deck with his entire immediate family looking at Manhasset Bay and relating stories of his life - sailing,  travels,  politics  and current events. He thought the most beautiful sight in the world was the sunset over Manhasset Bay.
