Gerard Green, 62

December 27, 2013

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Gerard "Chuck" Green, 62, of Fort Pierce, Fl., formerly of North Adams, died unexpectedly on Friday, Dec. 27, 2013, while visiting his son, Marine Capt. Brian Green and his family, in Quantico, Va.

Born in North Adams on Feb. 20, 1951, the son of Earl and Frances Walshe Green, he attended the former St. Joseph Grammar School and graduated from the former St. Joseph High School in 1969. He graduated in 1973 with a major in criminal justice from St. Anselm College, where he was a member of the college debate team.

Mr. Green had lived and worked with the Mustard Seed Ministry in Fort Pierce for the last nine years. At the time of his death, he was directing the ministry's half-way house. He counseled those struggling with addictions, homelessness and also those transitioning through the justice system. He had first worked as project manager and grant writer for the restoration and development of the Windsor Mills complex. After moving to Florida in 1978, he lived in Vero Beach and worked as a security guard at the Indian River Medical Center. He then joined the Indian River Sheriff's Department, where he attained the rank of lieutenant detective.

He loved his children and family. He was a proficient guitarist and had the ability to replicate a song after hearing it just once. His sense of humor was legendary and smile infectious. He found peace and pleasure while fishing and the ocean was his favorite destination. He was a sensitive, generous and kind man. His family is so very proud of his ability to use his life experience to help others. He will be terribly missed by all that knew him.

Besides his son and daughter-in-law, Sheri, he leaves a daughter, Meredith Green of Orlando, Fla.; three brothers,
James Green and his wife, Eileen, of McLean, Va., Kevin Green, and David, of Nantucket, and Shaun Green, and Susan, of Andover; a sister, Mary Garofano and her husband, Sully, of Pittsfield; his two beloved granddaughters, Evlin and Gywnevere of Quantico, and his former wife, Patricia Draper.

FUNERAL NOTICE — A celebration of Mr. Green's life will be held Friday, Jan 10, at 6 p.m. at Common Ground Vineyard Church, 600 Atlantic Ave, Fort Pierce, Fla.

In lieu of flowers, family suggests that donations may be sent to Mustard Seed Ministry, 3130 US Hwy 1, Ft. Pierce, FL 34982, so that they can continue to influence the lives of others, as Mr. Green strived to do every day.

We used to spend many a Christmas at the Green home on Franklin St. Chuck had the most infectious laugh and I will always remember it.
My thoughts are will you all.
God Bless
