Cecil Whig - - OBITUARIES & LOCAL -

J. David Green, “DGSR”, age 68, of Fair Hill, MD, passed away on Thurs­day, April 21, 2016, af­ter a heroic two-year bat­tle with can­cer.

Dave is sur­vived by his high school sweet­heart, best friend and wife of 48 years, Judy; son, Dave “Lit­tle Dave” Green and wife, Christy, daugh­ter, Chrissy Green and Jeff Crowl, and son, Steven Green and wife, Heather; grand­chil­dren, Ryan, Kyle, Jef­frey, Jen­nifer, Eric, Tyler, Hai­ley and Han­nah; great-grand­chil­dren, Matthew, Eli, Lay­lonie and An­thony; broth­ers, Myke Green and wife, Donna, and Denny Green (late wife, Donna); sis­ter, Linda Green; sis­ters-in­law, Kathy Hill (late hus­band, Mel), Beth and Gary Balogh, and Lois Hochstet­dler; sev­eral nieces and neph­ews; and mother, Mary Ann Wat­son. He was pre­ceded in death by his fa­ther, J.D. Green.

Dave owned and op­er­ated Fair Hill Auto Cen­ter, found­ing the busi­ness in 1988. Both sons later joined him at the shop and to­gether, have built a busi­ness which quickly be­came, and re­mains, not sim­ply one of the qual­ity auto cen­ters in the area, but also an in­te­gral and vi­tal hub of the com­mu­nity, con­tin­u­ing to lov­ingly serve gen­er­a­tions of lo­cal fam­i­lies.

Some of Dave’s most trea­sured ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded spend­ing time in Re­hoboth Beach, DE with fam­ily and friends, es­pe­cially sun­set happy hours on the bay, golf­ing (while not a scratch golfer, he did some­how man­age three hole-in-ones!), road trips, happy hours at Klondike Kate’s, and an over­rid­ing and un­der­ly­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion of re­ally good mu­sic of all times.

Al­ways con­cerned about the wel­fare of his com­mu­nity, Dave was an in­stru­men­tal voice in pre­serv­ing the unique char­ac­ter and charm of the greater Fair Hill area.

The Green fam­ily would like to most gra­ciously thank Katie from Amedisys Hospice and all the won­der­ful nurses in the Ra­di­ol­ogy Depart­ment at Chris­tiana Care.

A cel­e­bra­tion of Dave’s life will be held at 4 p.m. on Satur­day, April 30, 2016, at the Duck. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Fair Hill Auto Cen­ter (410-398-4900).

In lieu of flowers, con­tri­bu­tions may be made to PAWS for Peo­ple, in care of Hicks Home for Fu­ner­als, 103 W. Stock­ton Street, Elk­ton, MD 21921.
