Dennis Green

February 21, 1953 — March 3, 2014


Roger Dennis Green was gathered in the loving arms of his Father and embarked on his eternal journey on March 3, 2014. Dennis was born February 21, 1953 in Chipley, FL. He was 61 years old and a retired master carpenter. Dennis was inspired by his maternal grandfather (who was a carpenter) who told him "Jesus was a carpenter-it is a noble profession". So, at the age of 12, Dennis began working with his "Grandaddy" and learned to roof houses. He went on to attend Lively Technical Center and became a journeyman. Evidence of his expert work as a builder and finisher can be found in many commercial structures and residences in Tallahassee and as far away as Arkansas, Alabama and New Jersey. He was one of a team of specially selected construction workers that built Doak Campbell Stadium, one of the most intriguing college football stadiums in the world. Dennis built his mother's two story home and also built his own home for himself & family from the ground up. He was always happiest when he had a hammer, saw or other tools humming. His love for hunting inspired him to buy his land near the national forest where he built his house. Dennis requested that his family and friends remember him as a loving, compassionate man who loved life and everyone who was a part of it. He especially adored his grandchildren and spent as much time as possible with them. He leaves behind one daughter, Denise Green Marini, her husband Diego, one granddaughter Monique & one grandson, Mavrick, all of Tallahassee. Also surviving are his mother Carolyn Spears along with her husband Lewis, of Tallahassee and his father James E. Green of Woodville, two sisters, Sheri Green of Tallahassee and LeAnne Short, her husband Greg both of Valdosta, GA. and two brothers, J.E. "Jimbo" Green of Pensacola and Jack McLeod along with his life partner Robert Kendrick both of Tallahassee, two nieces, Jackie Tillman & Jamie Henderson, two nephews, Jessie Bishop & Tyler Henderson and his stepson Vincent Smith. He will be greatly missed but will remain forever in our hearts.
