Kenneth Dwain Green was born in Boonsboro, Mo., Oct. 11, 1937, the son of Robert Dorn Green and Willie Mae Durnell Green. He spent most of his youth on the farm in Richland until he moved to Bunceton. He graduated from Glasgow High School and Reppert School of Auctioneering. He married Ramona Serck at Zion Lutheran Church on May 22, 1959, and they are the parents of three children. He auctioned at the Davis, Johnson, Patrick Livestock Auction as well as many other sales barns throughout the state. He inspired and mentored many young men in the area to be auctioneers, as he was inspired by R.D. Patrick. Besides being a prominent auctioneer he was well known throughout the state and beyond as cattle buyer and trader, and he certainly will be remembered for his zest for life. He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church at Lone Elm, a charter member of the Bunceton Lions Club, Mo., State Auctioneers Association and the Fraternal Order of Eagles. He coached Little League and Babe Ruth baseball for many years. Dwain loved his family as well as his many, many friends to whom he was always willing to lend a helping hand. He enjoyed time at home watching almost any sport on T.V. He also enjoyed his daily visits to check on the Missouri River which was done at his own, leisurely pace.
Mr. Green was preceded in death by his parents, six sisters, and two brothers. He is survived by Ramona and his Mother in Law, Lydia Serck; his children, Patrick Green, Christi and husband Tim Carmichael of Boonville and Dr. Steve Green of Kansas City, Mo. His grandchildren; Courtney and her husband Nicholas Orscheln, Blake Green, Lindsey, Laura and Maggie Green, Austin, Alyssa and Addison Quinlan, Matt Taylor, Jackson and Baily Green and Aaron and Evan Carmichael will also miss him very much. A brother, Donald Green and his wife Nancy, of Columbia and sister Eula and Jim Smith of Higginsville, also survive.
