Obituary for Roy Wayne Green

In Loving Memory of Roy Wayne Green, 74, who peacefully passed away on February 6, 2024 in his home surrounded by family. He was born on December 23, 1949 in Tampa, Florida to Eva and Roy Green while stationed at MacDill Air Force Base, and his life was a testament to love, kindness, and strength.
Wayne was not only a loving husband to his wife Ruth for 30 years but also a devoted father to Derek Green, Brandon Green, and Meghan Cecil and a cherished grandfather to Townes Henry, Hugh Dawson, and Anne Ruth Green. His love knew no bounds, and his presence brought warmth and joy to all who knew him.
Wayne loved his friends like family and had more than anyone could imagine. The countless friendships he cultivated were a testament to his heart of gold and inviting personality. Whether he was spending time with his family, friends, pursuing his passions, or lending a helping hand to those in need, he did so with unwavering compassion and generosity. His laughter filled the room, his wisdom guided those around him, and his love bound his family and friends together in an unbreakable bond.
Wayne leaves behind a lifetime of cherished memories, lessons, and love. Though he may no longer walk beside us, his spirit will live on in the hearts of those he touched. His memory will be a beacon of light in our darkest moments and a reminder of the profound impact one life can have on the world.
Throughout his life, Wayne found joy in the simple pleasures and pursued his passions with unwavering dedication. He loved his beloved farm, which he built from the ground up, and so willingly shared its beauty and bounty with friends and family. Whether he was tending to the land, hunting deer and turkey, or simply enjoying the tranquility of rural life, his connection to the earth was palpable. Wayne was also an avid deep-sea fisherman, finding solace and excitement on the open waters. His love for the ocean and the thrill of the catch brought him immense joy and countless cherished memories. Additionally, he was a skilled long-range shooter, finding peace and focus in the precision of marksmanship. His dedication to honing his skills and mastering his craft was truly admirable. Wayne's love for country music, especially the Craig Morgan song "Almost Home," was a source of comfort and inspiration throughout his life. Beyond his personal pursuits, Wayne was an amazing baseball coach, inspiring and guiding young athletes to reach their full potential both on and off the field. His passion for the game was infectious, and his coaching legacy will live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of learning from him.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Ruth Green; his sons, Derek (Kathryn) Green and Brandon Green; daughter, Meghan Cecil; and his cherished grandchildren, Townes Henry, Hugh Dawson, and Anne Ruth Green. He is also survived by his brother-in-law, Cliff Boger, niece Holly Lorton, and nephew Clint Boger. Wayne will forever hold a special place in their hearts, his love and memories guiding them through life's journey.
He was preceded in death by his father, Roy Ralph Green, his mother, Eva Mae Green, his sister, Janice Boger, his father-in-law, Pedro Juan Arce, and mother-in-law, Virginia Maria Arce. They surely welcomed him with open arms into the embrace of eternity, reunited once again in a love that transcends time.
A celebration of Wayne’s' life will be planned for a later date and time, and announcements will be made once details are finalized. Flowers may be offered at that time.
Wayne may be gone from our sight, but he will never be forgotten. His love will live on in our hearts forevermore, a guiding light that will illuminate our path until we meet again.
