Goodbye to a Sweet ManJames R Green

It is with a heavy heart that I post of the passing of my step dad.  James R Green passed away on October 30, 2012.  He was surrounded by people who loved him when God called him home.

James R. Green, Sr.

 

September 15, 1917 - October 30, 2012

Green, James R. Sr., baptized into the hope of Christ's resurrection, Tuesday, October 30, 2012. Beloved husband of Betty J. Green (nee Covert-Gustafson) and the late Jeannatta Green (nee Powers). Dear father of Laura Schreiner, Barbara (Bud) Avooske, Pat Cardillo, Mary (Jim) O'Brien, Ida "Pinky" Cox, James (Marcia) Green Jr., Damian (Julie) Green and the late Michael (Barbara) and Stephen (Judy) Green; grandfather of 24; great-grandfather of 42; great-great-grandfather of 3; brother of Audrey Sims; step-father and friend of 11, step-grandfather of 22; step-great-grandfather of 12.

Jim served in the U.S. Army during WWII and fought in The Battle of the Bulge. He remained active in the Veterans organization and was involved in school presentations on educating children about The Battle of the Bulge. Jim was an avid golfer, charter member of Forest Hills Country Club and life time member of Franklin County Country Club.


It was an honor to know this gentle soul.  I will miss him so very much.  Please say a little prayer for Mr. Green and my mom.

Mr. Green, thanks for your courage at The Battle of the Bulge - my grandfather was there, too! 

 Rest in Peace, Sir.

 -- You wrote a nice tribute to your stepfather, Ann.  May God grant peace to your Mom and your family at this time.

Ann- what a very sweet memorial to your step dad.  I looked at the numbers...great grandfather of 42.... and think how many lives he must have touched.

Yes, this has been very difficult.  I only knew him for 6 years....which was not long enough.
