Had he not had a bout with pneumonia, they probably wouldn't have discovered the lung cancer that claimed his life when they did. Brian Greer, who with his sister Angie, wife Lorna, and his mother Lynette, operated City Lunch on the southeast Courtsquare in Lincolnton, died just after 1 AM Sunday (April 7th).
Warlick Funeral Home is serving the family. His funeral service will be held at 2 PM Thursday (April 11th) in the Warlick Funeral Home Chapel. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Cemetery. The family will receive friends Wednesday 6 - 9 PM at Warlick Funeral Home.
Brian was well-known not only for his work at City Lunch, but for selling those famous hot dogs at both Lincolnton and West Lincoln football games. He was an ardent LHS Wolves supporter.
His illness shocked the community. Coaches from LHS and West Lincoln held a pancake breakfast to raise funds to help with his treatment. A cornhole tournament was scheduled, and the annual hot dog feast that honors the late Donnie Goodson was this year to see all funds raised go to Brian's family to help pay the medical bills.
To say he will be missed is the obvious. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
