Timothy Greeman, the owner of Larchmont’s Anderson’s Book Shop, died January 3, 2021 at age 60.
Tim’s obituary fittingly says, “His passing inspired the New York Giants to win their sixth game out of sixteen this season, a win that Tim would’ve appreciated, or at least would’ve found somewhat amusing.”
In 2018, Anderson’s announced on social media, “NEW OWNERS who are Larchmont locals – Tim Greeman and Paulene Greeman. Tim Greeman, whose Grandfather lived in Larchmont before the Larchmont Train Station was built and who went to Mamaroneck High School (MHS), when the High School was located where the Mamaroneck Town Offices now are. Tim is an alum of the Murray Avenue School, Hommocks Middle School, and MHS. His parents were the former owners of the Book Shop.”
The store celebrated a 65th anniversary in 2011.
According to his obit, Tim was a talented and dedicated fine scale modeler, winning many awards nationally for his WWII tanks and armor vehicles. Tim was a pointedly non-religious person but believed wholly in the power of fun and laughter. He was an incredible husband, father, and all-around human being. He encouraged us all to take everything a little less seriously and to enjoy life as we are living it. We ask that you remember Tim in a way that a makes you laugh, as that is undoubtedly what he would’ve wanted.
Tim is survived by his wife Paulene, his children Rachel Greeman (Tim Heiler) and June Greeman, his brothers David (Amy) and Danny, his nephews Ben and Sam, his Uncle Richard, Aunt Julie, his cousin Jenny (Tim), as well as his extended family, Nathaniel and Annabelle Siegel, Jennifer Clifton-Siegel, Joe, Michael, Emily Clifton, and Tony Siegel.
