Wyndell graduated from Grambling State University in Dec. 1996 in the field of economics and received his MBA in 1998 from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.
Greene married Lakeysha in 2003 and bought a house in Frisco, Texas. She was working from home as a trainer for PepsiCo. He founded Greene Private Wealth Management in 2008, working out of an office in Plano, Texas.
Greene suffered injuries in an accident May 27 when an 18-wheeler barreled into the back of his SUV on Interstate 20 in Kaufman County Texas. The Toyota 4Runner Greene was driving crashed into the back of a car and ended up wedged beneath another 18-wheeler before bursting into flames.
The impact threw his wife Lakeysha from the SUV, police said.
A tow-truck driver who happened to be working an unrelated accident pulled Greene out of the Toyota in time. It was too late for his family. Greene received third-degree burns as a result of the accident.
Shelia Beachman, a neighbor of the Greene Family said, she recalled the Greenes bringing over curtains and blinds when she moved in. The children were often smiling and loved riding their tricycles and bikes.
“They looked out for us,” Beacham said.
“They’re the best neighbors you could ever have.”
