Glenn Green, 80, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 21, 2019 at home—surrounded by his family.
He was born October 06, 1938 in La Farge, Wisconsin, to William and Violet Green. He graduated from La Farge High School in 1956. On April 22, 1961, Glenn married Patricia Nevin at Saint Mary’s Ridge Catholic Church in Cashton, WI and they began their life in Fort Atkinson, where they stayed to raise their three sons. He worked for APV Crepaco for over 30 years, and then for Simonson Oil, Milton Propane, and Frontier Servco later in life.
Glenn was truly one of a kind. He enjoyed travel, and loved the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating and being out by the water. He also loved playing cards (especially cribbage) with family and friends. Above all else, spending time with his wife, his kids and his grandchildren was his most favorite thing.
Strong in his faith, Glenn was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Jefferson, WI.
He is survived by his wife, Patricia of Fort Atkinson; three sons, Dennis (Heidi) Green and Douglas (Jackie) Green of Fort Atkinson, and Brian (Tonja) Green of Sun Prairie; six grandchildren, Dustin (Loren) Green of Arlington, VA, Sam Green of Madison, WI, Meghann Green of Lake Geneva, WI, Michael Green (Liz Jurczyk) of Aurora, CO and Davis and Sophia Green of Sun Prairie; his brother, Larry (Ardelle Adamson) of Onalaska, WI, sister-in-law Jean Green of La Crosse, WI; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers (Roger, Ron and LaVerne).
A Mass of Christian Burial is planned for 1:00 p.m. on Friday, January 25 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, 324 East North Street, Jefferson, WI. Visitation is at the church from 11:00 a.m. until time of service.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Rainbow Hospice of Jefferson, WI, St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, or a charity of your choice.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Rachel Quinn and Rainbow Hospice. Their care and compassion gave him comfort in the last few years of his life. A special thank you, also, to Glenn’s wonderful friends and neighbors for all of their support and love.
