OBITUARY ~ DICK LEE GREEN
October 14, 1938 ~ February 09, 2015

On October 14, 1938, Dick Lee Green was born to Jacob Thomas and Neva Pearl Green near Sharpsburg, Iowa. He was the seventh of eight children and spent his growing up years on a farm west of Blockton, Iowa. During his elementary school years, Dick attended school at Athelstan, Iowa. After graduating from eighth grade, he went on to Blockton High School. There he graduated in 1957.

The summer following his graduation, Dick went west to work with combine crews in the wheat harvest. He did this for two summers. In the fall, following his graduation from Blockton High School, he attended Northwest Missouri State College at Maryville, Missouri. While there he met, and later married, Joann Ardell Akes. The couple moved to a farm close to King City, Missouri and began what would be a lifelong occupation. Buying a farm at Galt, Missouri, they relocated their young family where they remained for 13 years. The whole family was active in school, church, and 4-H activities. Wanting to be closer to aging parents and other relatives, a move was made to Mount Ayr, Iowa. All four children graduated from Mount Ayr Community High School, went to college, got married, and started families of their own.

Though he enjoyed farming his land and working with his cattle, Dick’s first and foremost joy was spending time with and watching his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren grow to become productive young adults. He was a loving husband, dad, and grandad. Family get-togethers always pleased him, whatever the occasion might be.

Dick passed away on February 9, 2015. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother Donald Green (Roberta); brother-in-law Raymond White; and brother-in-law Leland Loghry.

Survivors include brothers, Gerald Green (Norma), Junior (Marvel), Norman (Barbara), and Gordon (Betty); sisters Irene White, and Evelyn Loghry.

Also left to cherish his memory are his wife, Joann Ardell Green; son Marty Green (Ronda); daughters Betty (Elizabeth) Brand, Bonnie Randles, and Rhonda Triggs (Merle); grandchildren Edwin Brand (Melissa), Lucan Triggs (Jessica), Andrew Brand (Michelle), Abby Miller (Tony), Jason Brand, Amanda Jackson (Ben), Lyndon Triggs, Kevin Green, Nathaniel Brand, Christopher Green, Lindsey Catanzareti (Joe), Kimberly Green, Megan Brand, and Rachael Green; great-grandchildren Lauren Triggs, Mitchell Jackson, Brooklyn Miller, Nicholas Triggs, Kyler Green, Mackenzie Jackson, Vivian Miller, Evan Miller, Aiden Brand, Adrian Catanzareti, and Michael Miller; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Watson-Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr is in charge of the arrangements.

Services were held at the United Baptist-Presbyterian Church in Mount Ayr with Pastor Bill Armstrong officiating.

Casketbearers were Edwin Brand, Lyndon Triggs, Lucan Triggs, Kevin Green, Andrew Brand, Nathaniel Brand, Jason Brand and Christopher Green.

Honorary Pallbearers were Abby Miller, Kimberly Green, Amanda Jackson, Megan Brand, Lindsey Catanzareti and Rachael Green.

Burial was at Rose Hill Cemetery.
