Mr. Chester Lewis Green known to many as “Greenie” passed away at home surrounded by his family on Sunday, October 13, 2019.  He was 82 years old.  

Mr. Green was born on December 30, 1936 in New Castle, DE to the late Chester N. and Ella Lewis Green.  In addition to his parents he is also preceded in death by a step son Barry Spencer in 1992 and a sister, Christine Mumford.  

Greenie was employed by Townsends as a truck driver for 28 years. Following retirement from Townsends he then became a bus contractor for 28 years and for the last 13 years he owned and operated  Lower Sussex Transportation and contracted with   the Indian River School District.   He was a member of Hickory Hill United Methodist Church, but recently attended Life Church in Georgetown. Some of his favorite things to do were collecting antiques and spending time with family and friends at Trails End in Virginia.  There you would find him enjoying cookouts, bonfires, classic country music and cruising around on his golf cart.  

 He is survived by his beloved wife of 44 years, Joanne M. Green of Millsboro, DE; a daughter, Kimberly Green and her wife Rene Peterson of Millsboro, DE;  five  step-children, Denise Marker, Dennis Spencer, Dawn Larrimore, Mike Spencer and James Spencer.  He also leaves behind a brother, Jerry Green and his wife Thelma of Millsboro, DE as well as ten grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.  We cannot leave out his beloved canine friend “Nick” whom he adored.  

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at the Watson Funeral Home, 211 S. Washington St. Millsboro, DE  19966 where friends may call from 10 AM – 11 AM for viewing and visitation.  Entombment will follow at Woodlawn Memorial Park.
