Robert H. (Horton) Green
Salt Lake City, UT - Robert H. (Horton) Green passed away peacefully due to the complications of age, on December 7, 2019 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Robert made his debut at his grandparents' ranch in Menan, Idaho on November 16, 1927 into the arms of his beloved parents Charles Wesley and Lola Leavitt Green. An adventurous young man, Bob enjoyed an active childhood in the majesty of the outdoors. His family relocated to Phoenix, Arizona right before he turned 14 and his adventures continued.

An avid family man, Robert was preceded in death by the love of his life, Irene Rowan, to whom he was blissfully wed for 63 years. They raised their family in the Arcadia District of Phoenix, where they never tired of their view of Camelback Mountain illuminated by desert sunsets. Bob was active in the community and with his wife served others freely.
Robert was also preceded in death by his beloved sisters Zara Fay Herbert and Lucille Romney, and daughter Susan. He is survived by his loving brothers, Ronald Green (Bebe) of Palm Desert CA, Boyd Green (Sue) of Sequim WA, and Wesley Green (Susan) of McMinnville OR. He is also survived by his adoring children- Shauri Campbell (Tom), of Missouri City TX, Shelli Jones (Richard) of San Diego and Salt Lake City, Staci Skabelund (Doug) of Laveen AZ, and Robert H. Green, Jr (Jenn) of Ahwatukee AZ.
