FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER

BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE”.

-JOHN 3:16

 

Bennie Felton Greene was born on December 28, 1934 in Sumter, South Carolina to the late Samuel and Rosa Howard Green. He passed away on August 7, 2019 at Solaris Healthcare Center (Merritt Island, FL) amongst a dedicated and caring staff. He was educated in Sumter County School System, was a star football player, avid golfer and social butterfly with many talents. He loved to travel and was a self-made business owner cutting patterns for designers in the garment district in Los Angeles, California and absolutely loved the beach! He was a quiet, gentle person with an even temperament–listening first, before speaking.  Always willing to offer sage advice without judgement and reminding people that your “glass is always half-full” even during troubling times.

His presence will be truly missed by his surviving children: son, Ronald B. Greene and daughter, Ursula R. Howard; Daughter-in-law (Sharon Greene); Son-in-law (Jermaine Howard); sister Susan (Robert) Carter; brother George Washington Green; grandchildren: Ledell, Erik, Sophia, Justin, Matthew and Sasha; great grandson Landon. He will also be missed by all his Cousins, Nephews, Nieces and a host of Friends in which he came in contact.  He was preceded in death by Sisters: Annette Rebecca Cook (Green), Rosa Ross, Miriam (Dolly) Dixon, Sadie Gary, Helen Green Eaglin, Daisy Ann Vaz; Brothers: Robert Lee Green, Thomas Green, John Henry Green and Joseph Green.

 

You can rest now and take long walks on the beach.  We Love you Pops!
