JACK E. GREEN Mueller's Tri-Cities Funeral Home Jack E. Green was born in Battle Creek, Michigan on June 18, 1928 to John & Alice Green. He was raised in Roslyn, Washington and graduated from Cle Elum High School in 1946. Jack courted his best friend Joyce all through her college years, and they married June 2, 1951 at the Cle Elum Community Church. Jack was drafted into the US Army in 1953 and served in Manheim, Germany until his honorable discharge in 1961. He moved to Kennewick, Washington in July 1955 where he operated Jack Green's Chevron Service Station on Kennewick Avenue for 35 years. During this time, he met many life time friends, who were drawn to Jack because of his quick wit and snappy puns. After retiring in 1988, Jack travelled the world with his favorite fellow adventurer, Joyce. Jack was always very active; he enjoyed golfing, boating, waterskiing, snowmobiling, and the outdoors. Jack had the warmest smile, and he made it his mission to make everyone around him smile, which was an easy task for such a sharp jokester. Jack's favorite memories were at their family cabin [his favorite drink] in hand, doing what he loved and hanging out with his family. Jack is survived by: Wife of 65 years Joyce (Crowe) Green; Daughters & Sons-in-law: Linda (Green) Adams & Raymond Adams of North Tustin, CA, Kathy J (Green) Craig & Andy Craig of Richland, WA; Brother & Sister-in-law: Frank and Shirley Green of Ellensburg WA; Grandchildren: Raymond Adams, Jacqueline Adams, Nichole Craig, Ryan Craig, Abigail Craig and Jacob Craig; numerous nieces, nephews & cousins throughout the United States and England. Celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, April 30th, at 10:00 a.m., at The Garden Sanctuary First Presbyterian Church, 2001 W. Kennewick Ave, Kennewick followed by a Luncheon at Anthology Event Venue at 706 Williams Blvd, Richland. In lieu of flowers, the family requests any donations be sent to the Lewy Body Dementia Association, 912 Killian Hill Road SW, Liburn, GA 30047 in Jack's name.
