Kenneth Wayne Green

Kenneth Wayne Green, 63, of Powell, passed away peacefully, surrounded by the family he loved and who loved him dearly on Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013.

Ken was born on June 16, 1950, to the late James C. and Ruby Green of Dallas. After graduating high school, he joined the Air Force in 1968 and was stationed at England Air Force Base in Alexandria, La. There he met his soon-to-be wife, Barbara, on a blind date. Ken proposed on their second date, nine days later; and they were married three months later. During their 42 years together, they owned and operated Falcon Concrete Products in Kerens for 18 years and Hwy. 31 Self-storage for the last 17 years.   

Ken was an avid hunter and enjoyed the outdoors, spending his time chasing after coon and deer. When not hunting, his biggest passion, next to his family, was the cattle on his ranch and frequenting the auction in Angus, visiting with his many friends. Those who knew Ken, were aware that calves on his ranch were never allowed to be named, because once they reached 600 lbs. their name was “GONE.” Ken had a love for ranching and was always excited to talk about cows and pass on words of wisdom gathered from many decades of working cattle. His favorite past time was trading. Ken was known to buy, sell and trade with the best of them and continued to pursue the next potential sale for as long as he was able. His family joked the only things not for sale, were his wife and two kids. When not hunting or working cattle he could always be found with his wife Barbara, either at home, at Falcon or at Bluebonnet. Ken was most proud of his son, daughter and both of his granddaughters, whom he taught to be fierce domino players. Ken never met a child he did not love, was always quick with a joke, and never met a stranger.

Ken is survived by his wife and soul mate, Barbara Green; daughter and son-in-law, Emily and Ross Weiner; son and daughter-in-law, Luke and Brandy Green; his perfect granddaughters, Lynzee and Bailey Scruggs; and his sisters and brothers, Jimmie Hamm, Claudie Langford, Betty Timmons, Ruby Lee Swan, Harry Green, Tommy Green, Debbie Anderson, Paulette Rogers, Charlie Green, Robert Green, James Green; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at Griffin-Roughton Funeral Home in Corsicana.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at Griffin-Roughton Funeral Home in Corsicana.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to: House of Refuge, 627 W. Collin Street, Corsicana, TX 75110.
