LUBBOCK Rev. Lomer Davis Green was born in Laurel, Miss., on October 7, 1921, to David and Daisy Green. He went to be with his beloved wife, Dorothy, of almost 60 years, on March 26, 2014. He is survived by his four children: daughter, Beverly Vincent and her husband Vince of Center Point, TX; daughter, Marie and her husband Philip of Lubbock; son, Fred of Longview, TX; and son, Lomer Davis Jr. and his wife Brenda of Midland. He is survived by eight grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Memorial services will be at Redbud Baptist Church at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning with Pastor Shon Wagner officiating. Rev. Mike Bartlett of Odessa will officiate at graveside services at 3:00 p.m. at the cemetery in Kermit, Texas. Visitation will be held from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. Friday at Resthaven Funeral Home. He grew up in Midland, TX, and played high school football for Midland High and Jal High School. Lomer entered the US Army in August 1942 and served in the Pacific in WWII for three and one half years. He drove a tank in three major campaigns, the Marshall Islands, Phillippine Islands and Okinawa. He met Dorothy Welzel in Baltimore, Maryland, while stationed at Fort Meade, and they were married in Midland, TX, in 1943. He surrendered to the ministry while serving in the Phillippines, ending the war as a Chaplain's Assistant. Upon returning from the war in 1946, he joined his precious wife and went to East Texas Baptist University, where he graduated in 1949. He later attended Southwestern Seminary for three years. Lomer was licensed and ordained by First Baptist Church in Midland in 1946. Rev. Green began his pastorates with Cotton Flats Baptist Church in Midland, TX. He pastored churches in Louisiana before moving to Texas. Lomer was called to the West Texas area, where he pastored at First Baptist Church in Ft. Hancock, Loma Terrace Baptist Church, Skyline Baptist Church and Tigua Baptist Church, all in El Paso, TX. He was called to First Baptist Church in Big Spring, Grace Temple Baptist Church in Kermit and University Park Baptist Church in Odessa until he semi-retired from the ministry in 1987. Bro Green was pastor at the First Baptist Church, Spade, TX, for six years, before he fully retired in 2012. He was a mission-minded, church-building pastor. During his ministry, Rev. Green served his Lord as part of the Southern Baptist Convention and Texas Baptist Convention, as a member of the committee to elect board members. As a board member and messenger, in his work for the Lord, Lomer served as moderator of church pastors' meetings, missions committees and many others. When Bro. Green retired, he led the Permian Basin Baptist Builders to help build churches. He was also the president of the Retired Baptist Ministers Alliance in Lubbock. He has preached revivals all over the West, Arizona and Utah. He moved to Lubbock in 2005 after the death of his wife, Dorothy. He loved his Lord, family, friends, football and golf. He served the Lord for 67 years. To God be the Glory – what a ride!
