He was the son of John Thomas (Johnny) Greer and Zora Lee Parham Greer. J.L. was a graduate of Pine Grove High School, where he was an outstanding basketball player. He played under the leadership of Coach J.M. Holley and they remained friends until Coach Holley's death.
J.L. was a hard worker and was employed by Futorian Manufacturing Company in New Albany until he became disabled.
