Deacon Charlie Allen Green was born December 3, 1942, in Madison County, Alabama to the late Ms. Willie Earlene Green. He transitioned to his heavenly home on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, at his residence in Huntsville, Alabama. He is preceded in death by five siblings.

Deacon Green had a very strong work ethic. He was employed with Sunbeam Bakery for 38 years, and due to corporate acquisition retired from Colonial Bakery in 1999. After retirement, he enjoyed working on small engines and providing lawn care services. He was passionate about a well-manicured lawn, as well as providing lawn care services for others throughout the community. Whenever he was at home one could find him in his sanctuary, or better yet, his small paradise, which was in his backyard.

Deacon Green chose to work on small engines in his backyard as well. He was an avid gospel music lover, and his favorite song was “On my way to Heaven”. Deacon Green would always say, “it’s just something about that song”. He accepted Christ at an early age, and joined Little Flock Primitive Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend F. T. Blackwell. He remained a faithful member until his health declined. He held several offices in the church including Treasurer of the Deacon Board and Parliamentarian in Sunday school. Deacon Green accepted his role and stewardship on the Deacon board seriously; moreover, he accepted his Christian relationship with the Lord very seriously, and would always meet others with a smile.

Deacon Green was united in holy matrimony to Gloria Moore Green on February 11, 1983. To this union, two children were born, twins: Andrea Yvonne Green and Andre Allen Green; one additional son, Charlie DeWayne Jolly, and one stepdaughter, Iris Renee Walter (Billy), all of Huntsville, AL.

Deacon Green was previously united with Linda Lue Green and to that union, four children were born: Janice Green, Jerlene Williams (Ronald), and Kevin Green (Natasha) all of Detroit, Michigan, and Marquetta Haynes (Ivel) of Houston, Texas.

He leaves to cherish his memory five sisters, Fannie Mae Baker (Robert), Bernice Kent, Mamie Sue McComb (Steven), Bessie Hereford, Mattie Rice, and two brothers, Billy Ray Green (Tenya) and Willie L. Green (Amanda), all of Huntsville, AL; two additional brothers: Reverend Larry Ford and Kirby Ford, both of Lansing, Michigan ; one very special grandson, Mason Carter Green of Huntsville, AL, and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren; and one very special friend, Howard Lee Nance.
