Stewart Ray Green at the age of 80 was called home to be with the Lord on September 15, 2023 after a period of declining health. He was born June 15, 1943 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, son of the late Raymond Harkley Green and the late Emma Lee Lamb Green. Stewart was a devoted husband to Sandra for 60 years, the loving father of Ray and Mike, and an adoring grandfather. He lived a long, full life with his adored family who also loved spending time camping, deer hunting and fishing whether in fresh water, deep sea or surf fishing. He had wonderful memories being a member of the Morgan Hunting Club for many years.
Stewart was a successful welder working with several construction companies as well as being self-employed. A jack of all trades, he proudly built with the help of his sons, their family home and farm. His special love for animals grew into a farm and happy home for his cows and many beloved dogs. Gardening was also one of his pleasures, especially growing his famous tomatoes. He was an avid NASCAR fan of the late Dale Earnhardt and enjoyed the hobby of taxidermy. Stewart enjoyed attending Laurel Hill Baptist Church with his family. During a special time of prayer with Ray, Stewart accepted the eternal salvation of Christ. Though he will be greatly missed, he is at peace in his Heavenly home.
