Thomas was a devoted father to his precious daughter, Peyton “Pip Pip” Green. He loved her with all his heart and soul, teaching her the importance of living life to the fullest and never shying away from a good mud puddle. Thomas's love for his daughter was truly the driving force behind everything he did. He was also blessed with a family who knew how to keep up with his wild ways. His parents, Gene and Robin Green, were the perfect role models for a boy who grew up with a passion for farm life and an unbreakable bond with his siblings, Noelle Lawson (Scott), Steve Green (Tammy), Jim Miller (Hazel), and Sierra McGrotha (Kenneth). Also left to cherish his memories are numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.
Thomas's love for the farm began when he was barely old enough to walk. One of his first daily chores was feeding the baby calves at Green Brothers Dairy in Monroe County, while learning the value of hard work. This passion for working with his hands led him to a career as a heavy machine operator for Heidelberg Materials, where he spent his days loving his job at the rock quarry on Highway 41 in Monroe County.
When Thomas wasn't working at the quarry or spending time with his daughter, he could be found hunting, fishing, and riding four-wheelers through any mud he could find. He was a man who lived his life to the fullest, embracing every opportunity to be adventurous, funny, and loving. He cherished teaching others to enjoy the outdoor life as much as he did. His friends will remember him as the life of the party, always ready with a laugh. Thomas was the kind of guy who could turn a boring fishing trip into an epic tale of adventure and camaraderie, and his memory will live on in the laughter of those who had the privilege to know him.
Thomas was a member of Living Hope Baptist Church. In past years, he enjoyed working with the children at Vacation Bible School and volunteering keeping up the grounds and facilities at the church. His favorite scripture was Psalms 42:1-3.
In true Thomas fashion, we can't end this obituary without a little humor. So, in the words of Thomas himself, "If you're reading this, don't be sad for me, because I lived a life full of love, adventure, and more laughs than most people get in a lifetime. Just remember to always take the dirt road less traveled, and don't be afraid to get a little mud on your tires. Go Big or Go Home.”
Thomas Green - the devoted father, the life of the party, and the best friend a person could ask for, may you rest in peace knowing that your adventurous spirit and loving heart will live on in the memories of those who were blessed enough to know you.
