Dennis Edward Green Nov. 21, 1946-July 6, 2019

Dennis Edward Green, 72, passed away at 4:37 p.m., Saturday, July 6, 2019 at Parkview Wabash Hospital, with his sisters by his side. He was born Nov. 21, 1946 in Chicago, to Elmer F. and MaryLou (Thrasher) Green.

Dennis grew up in Wabash and was a 1964 graduate of Wabash High School. He enlisted in the Air Force in 1967 and proudly served our country for four years. After serving in the military, he attended and received a BS in Economics from Manchester College. He was a member of the Wabash Trinity Lutheran Church and was a member of the church council. He served as chairman of the youth committee and was proud to serve as Executive of Big Brothers of Wabash County. Dennis joined Container Corporation in 1974 and worked as a field sales manager. He continued in the paper industry after a move to the west coast in 1987, where he remained until he moved back to his Indiana home in June of this year. Dennis was always loyal to his Chicago roots and supported the White Sox, Bears, and Blackhawks, seldom missing a game. He loved great food, traveling, being with friends, and loved music. Dennis enjoyed being back home in Wabash and endlessly reminisced about growing up in such a great small town.

He is survived by his sons, Michael Green and Stephen Green, both of Orange, California, and their mother Deborah Green, two sisters, Barbara (Rick) Gossett of Grandville, Michigan, and Lauri (Dean) Gunderman of Wabash, and his sister-in-law, Lynne Green of Indianapolis, Indiana, nieces and nephews, Christian (Jamie) Gossett of Lansing, Michigan, Emily (Aaron) Aungst of Grandville, Marcel Gossett of Grand Rapids, Jennifer (Don) Hilton of Noblesville, Indiana, Dylan Gunderman of Kokomo, and Nicole Gunderman of Wabash.  He was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother, Charles Green.

The family is planning a private ceremony to dedicate his cremains in the Chapel of Remembrance Mausoleum, at Memorial Lawns Cemetery, Wabash, at a later date. Arrangements by Grandstaff-Hentgen Funeral Service, Wabash.

Preferred memorial is Wabash County Cancer Society.
