Colonel (retired) Kenneth N. Greenlaw, Jr.  
October 8, 1931 – January 8, 2022  

Kenneth (Kenn) passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home in Littleton on January 8, 2022, at age 90.  

Kenn was a career Army officer (Military Intelligence), retiring as a Colonel after 28 years of service, including three tours in Vietnam and postings in Austria, Japan and Germany. He concluded his career as an assistant to the Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon in Washington DC.  

Kenn also had a post-military career as the Director of Army Systems at Martin-Marietta in Littleton, Colorado.  

Kenn was proud of his service, particularly as Commander of the 502ndASA Group in Augsburg, Germany from 1970 to 1973. He was well liked and respected by his troops. During his career, he was twice-awarded the Legion of Merit and Meritorious Service Medal.  

Preceding Kenn’s passing was his beloved wife of 63 years, Donna. He is survived by his son Ken III, daughter Val and her husband John, grandson Ken IV and daughter-in law Cathy. He was preceded in death by his sister Barbara Briton of Trenton, NJ.  

Kenn was a gentle and thoughtful husband and father. His absence leaves an immense void in our family. He will be profoundly missed.  

Service for Kenn will be Monday, January 17, 10:00 am at Drinkwine Funeral Home in Littleton, Colorado followed by interment at Littleton Cemetery.
