Larry “Jake” John Green was born on October 22, 1956 in Clinton, IA to John and Shirley May (Crandall) Green. Jake was raised on a farm in Morrison learning the value of family and hard work. He was a proud Union Grove Warrior, Fulton Steamer, die-hard Cardinal Fan and big Dale Earnhardt Fan. Jake Loved football, basketball and baseball in his youth. His next wave took him to slow pitch softball where he played and managed and prospered in many league championships, pitched a perfect game, and cherished his teammates. Jake spent his career in farming, construction, long haul, deck and scale man at Bunge, Argi and the Fulton Grain Elevator before retiring from BWC. He prided himself in being the man you could depend on to get it done.
Jake will miss his Sunday foursome at the Fulton Country Club. He was proud of his home and yard requiring great assistance from Dale. Jake was famous for his “Man Cave” with the regulars of Beek, Blaze, Gordie, Mark, Rick, Sid, Jeff, Tam and too many more to mention – cold PBRs and good friends – the special place. Jake was a self-proclaimed master hog roaster and many enjoyed the bounty.
Jake is survived by his siblings, Linda (Mike) Carney, Dale (Kathy) Green, Robert (Lynn) Green and Gary (Ellen) Green. He leaves his cherished nieces and nephews, Shawn (Jennifer) Carney, Kelly (Jeff) Smith, Ryan (Megan) Carney, Michael (Sarah) Green, Miranda (Branden) Nimrick, Julie Paradis, James, Jacob and Justin Green, Harry, Riley (Madison) and Spencer Green. He is survived by his mother’s brothers: Cliff (Sylvia) and George (Moonja) Crandall. Jake had a special bond with his step-father James D. Howell who preceded him in death along with his mother Shirley and father John.
A special prayer of gratitude to Sis, Dale, and the wonderful caregivers at Pleasant View. God Speed Brother!!!
