To my "Bothers and Sisters". Thank you so much for letting me take Uncle Doc to Florida for the winter. We had such a great time. He drove me crazy always wanting to go to Denny's to eat when there were so many fresh seafood places, but I will never look at a Denney's again without a smile on my face and warm memories in my heart. To many laughs to count, all the afternoons playing "Joker" with family and dear friend,Paul Bear. To many good times. You will be missed. Your loving neice, Judy

Doc could "fix" almost anything. Whatever was broken or not working, just giv e him some time to sit and figure it out and it would get fixed. He taught me so much about how to build, repair, and come up with a workable solution I will always be grateful. He was a good friend and had some amazing ideas. His garden was always beautiful and so very productive. I know he loved his family. I In years gone by, I can remember we would always celebrate our birthdays together on the 4th of July and I can remember some grand fireworks, particularly with a black powder cannon. I am so happy my kids and grandkids had a chance to spend time with Grandpa Green.

Glenn, Ron and the rest of the family.........we are sending our sincere sympathy in the loss of your dad. He was such a nice man. I came to know him a bit more when he would be a customer at the paint store. He was always so friendly and always had some time to chat. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Doc was the BEST neighbor that anyone could ask for. From the time Bill and I were married Doc gave me a lot of knowledge about plants, birds and being a good friend. We will remember him always. Doc, you are now with Eleanor. I told Bill God must have needed someone to care for his blue birds & garden. God bless you and your family. Linda and Bill Bervinkle

Doc was by far one of the greatest persons I have ever known. He certainly was the best neighbor anyone could ever want. I wish he could have been with us for many more years. I learned so much just sitting on his front porch and asking him for his advice on many topics particularly from raising honey bees to gardening. Bev, Donna, Ron, Jerry and Glenn, thank you for sharing your father with all of us. I am going to miss him.

Obituary for Howard "Doc" H. Green

Howard H. “Doc” Green passed away at his residence at 1:40 a.m. on Monday, December 23, 2013 at the age of 83, after a year of declining health. He was surrounded by his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and his chocolate lab, Ginger, during his last days.

He was born on July 3, 1930, the youngest child of Charles E. and Leona Mae (Harpst) Green in the family home on Werner Road, Sugar Grove Township. He resided within the Osgood and Leeches Corners area throughout his life.

He attended the Leeches Corners One-Room School and participated in several of the school’s reunions.

Doc was employed by the R. D. Werner Company as an extrusion press operator for 30 years, retiring in 1977 following major lung surgery. He enjoyed attending the retirees’ monthly breakfasts and their summer picnics.

He was a great lover of nature and the outdoors. He constructed over 3000 bluebird boxes that were distributed throughout Pennsylvania and adjoining states as part of the rebuilding of the Eastern Bluebird population in the region. Twice he was recognized by the state of Pennsylvania for his volunteer efforts at Goddard State Park. Additionally, he raised mealworms for bird food and had bluebirds that would regularly visit his front porch and eat out of his hand.

He was an avid sportsman and had hunted in Pennsylvania, New York, Utah, and Canada as well as making numerous trips to Colorado for elk and mule deer. Many of the deer he harvested were taken with a 44 magnum handgun with open sites. He was a life member of the National Rifle Association and the White Oak Shooting Club, representing them as a delegate to the Mercer County Federation of Sportsman’s Clubs. During his time on the board they established both the Mercer County Conservation Camp and the Mercer County Youth Field Day. For his contribution to the organization, he was awarded the Seth Myers Award for Conservation.

True to his last name, Doc loved to grow and groom his yard and garden. He raised and sold strawberries for many years, and then became interested in organic gardening. His neat garden and bountiful crops were his pride and joy; sharing his produce with family, friends and neighbors. In addition to the vegetables, he always had a wide variety of colorful flowers decorating his yard. At one time, he would have hundreds of gladiolus plants blooming.

Doc particularly enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, especially if those included a picnic or bowl of homemade ice cream. He loved to attend the sporting events of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He sat through many wet and freezing hours to cheer on his favorite players and teams. He was also interested in a good board or card game, and he regularly got together with family and friends to spend an enjoyable afternoon.
On April 28, 1950 he married V. Eleanor Pfaff in the Kennard Presbyterian Church. She preceded him in death on March 6, 2010, just eight weeks prior to their 60th wedding anniversary.

Howard is survived by: two daughters, Beverly Riley and her husband, Mike, and Donna Adams, both residents of Jamestown; three sons, Ronald W. Green and his wife Kathleen, Gerald I. Green and his wife Angela, and Glenn E. Green and his wife Carey, all of Greenville. He also has nine grandchildren: Patrick Riley, Dr. Andrew Adams, Amber Adams, Petty Officer 1st Class Theodore Green, Dennis Green, Sierra Green, Jenna Green, Becky Green and Robert Green. Completing his off-springs are 11 great-grandchildren. He also is survived by a brother, Lloyd Green and his wife Barbara, of both Meadville and Florida.

In addition to his wife, Eleanor, he was preceded in death by two brothers, LeRoy Green and Charles W. Green, as well as a sister, Edythe Kirst.
