Robert Arthur Green

August 14, 1935 — March 13, 2024


Robert Arthur Green, 88, died peacefully on March 13, 2024, surrounded by his family at the end of a lengthy illness. Mr. Green was born on August 14, 1935, the son of Arthur Green and Alice (Miller) Green of Kokomo, Indiana. He was a graduate of Kokomo High School and Ball State University, where he was president of the senior class. On November 30, 1958, he married his college sweetheart, Linda Mae Brammell. They were married for 58 years; his beloved wife preceded him in death on August 11, 2016.

For 21 years, he worked as a highly regarded salesman for Continental Steel and, later, Leggett & Platt, retiring in 1997 as a National Vice President of Sales involving a wide variety of components used in the manufacture of furniture, bedding and other products. During his career, he worked in Kokomo, Indiana, Lexington, Kentucky, Winchester, Kentucky, and Carthage, Missouri.

Mr. Green had a lifelong love of fishing and boating, spending time during his childhood each summer on Lake Michigan with his family. Later in life, his affinity for the water featured prominently in travel. He and Linda took cruises in Alaska and Italy – where they celebrated their 50th anniversary – and the couple also journeyed several times to Hawaii.

Mr. Green, who played trombone in high school, loved music, and especially enjoyed listening to brass arrangements. He listened daily to Tony Bennett and watched videos of the singer’s performances, especially the duos with other prominent singers.

Mr. Green also enjoyed playing Bridge, Euchre and Rummy card games. He and Linda played host to card parties with friends. He often played golf, and long after he gave up his trips to the golf course, he continued putting most mornings on his living room carpet.  After retirement, the Greens lived on golf courses in Oklahoma and North Fort Myers, Florida.

He adored his family, and his children and grandchildren frequently gathered for dinners, music events, celebrations, and holidays. He visited with all of them in his final days, flashing “I love you” in American Sign Language. 

Mr. Green’s survivors include his children, Jill Troha (Jeff Wilson) of Fishers, Julie Troha (Tim Clark) of Westfield, and Jay Green (Tammy Green) of Westfield; and his grandchildren, Nick Troha (Bailey Reed), Ryan Troha, Alayna Troha and Joshua Green. Other survivors include his longtime friends, Joyce and Jerry Hodges of Indiana, and Jim and Katie Haag of Kentucky. Also surviving are Mr. Green’s beloved caregivers: Heidi Trotter, Ricardo Elie, Tenise Winn, and Joseph McNeal.
