Obituary

Obituary for Dick Green

Green, Richard Henry Joseph “Dick” – (MWO Ret., CD, 1961-1992)

Passed away peacefully with his daughters by his side on Tuesday, October 29th at the age of 78. Loving father of Dallas Green (Sally Evans), Kerri Green and Jodi Green. Cherished Papa of Wyatt Hayward and Braiden Howes. Dick is predeceased by his parents Richard (1994) and Hildred Green (1998). Dear brother of Sandra McInnis (Pat), Susan Russell (Ed), and Terry Green. Dick will be fondly missed and remembered by Sharon Green, nieces, nephew, extended family and friends.

Dick’s greatest accomplishment was his career in the Canadian Armed Forces as a Combat Engineer. Dick was an original member of the Kawartha Kavaliers (1957) which he kept close to his heart, returning to them after his retirement from the Military in 1992. He will always be remembered for his quick wit and ability to make others smile with an amazing sense of humor.

Visitation will take place at the Mackey Funeral Home, 33 Peel Street, Lindsay on Saturday, November 2nd from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Funeral Service will take place in the chapel on Sunday, November 3rd at 3:15 p.m. Legion Members are to assemble at 3:00 p.m. If desired, a memorial donation to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 67 – Poppy Fund would be appreciated by the family. Online donations and condolences can be made at www.mackeys.ca

The family would like to extend their huge thanks to the staff at Caressant Care Mary Street for their excellent care of Dick and his family.

Wow. Dick's gone. Mentor, friend and a great Engineer. Met him in 2 Troop, 3 FD Sqn in 1963. Made my first Wainwright liveable, and saved my butt from CB more than once. Chimo, old friend.

Our Condolences go out to Sharon and Family. I served with Dick in 2 CER, Petawawa, Ontario. Along with many stories to be told by the many people who were inspired and awed by "Tricky Dicky" over the span of his military career, I too had the great pleasure of working with, for and along side of Dick on many occasions. He truly was an inspiration, I am one of the blessed who can call him Friend and Brother in arms. He was like a father figure for me and an awesome Mentor. You are Dearly missed and Fondly remembered my friend. Rest In Peace , CHIMO
