John ‘Jack’ A. Green, born June 18, 1935, passed from this world to his eternal home on Saturday, August 10, 2019.
Surviving him is his beloved wife of nearly 59 years, Dorothy (Tatara) Green. His three daughters and their spouses whom he considered sons also survive him: Mary and Tim Milloy, Kathy and John Griffith, Karen and Joe Carneval. His pride and joy were his grandchildren: Aly (Milloy) and Andy Buziak, Jake and Danielle Griffith, Meghan (Milloy) and Kevin Witwer, Josh Griffith, Andy Milloy and Olivia Carneval. His legacy also includes four great-granddaughters, Cecilia, Zoey, Mara, Serena and his first great-grandson and namesake, baby Jack.
Above all else, John was a man of faith who loved his family. As such, he served selflessly in many roles within the Catholic Church and along with many charitable organizations. His favorite pastimes were playing cards, boating, golfing, reading, and Notre Dame Football. He passed on his unwavering faith to his family; any time spent together was worth celebrating.
