Gary R. Green, 65, son of Clayton and Ora Green, was born and raised in Rush City, Minn.
After high school, Gary moved throughout the country and had various jobs.
And through two unions of marriage, he was blessed with five children.
In Apache Junction/Mesa Ariz., Gary met the love of his life, Kristen.
The two were best friends and companions for 27 years.
Gary’s courageous battle with cancer ended Sept. 23, 2012, with lovely Kristen and family members by his side.
Gary is survived by his companion, Kristen Lynch, Kristen’s seven children, grandchildren and great grandchildren; Gary’s sons, Richard, Brian and Shawn; daughters Jessica and Vickie, five grandchildren; sisters Maralee Borgerson and Linda Carlson; nieces and nephews; aunts Barbara and Donna Walton, and many cousins and friends.
Gary is preceded in death by his loving parents, grandparents, brother-in-laws, aunts, uncles and cousins.
We would like to thank Kristen for her love and devotion to our brother, to Odyssey Hospice Healthcare in Mesa, Ariz., their doctors, nurses and staff for the awesome care and for showing so much love and compassion to our brother.
Rest in peace, dear brother. We will love and miss you always.
