Richard (Dick) V. Green, 97, of Fort Myers, FL, and formerly of Green Valley, IL, Groveland, IL, and Morton, IL, passed away on Sunday, March 10, 2024, in the memory care section of Amavida Living in Fort Myers, FL. Dick was born on November 11, 1926 in Indiana to Irma and Paul Green. He married Judith (Judy) B. Woodmansee on June 20, 1948. They were married for 71 years. He is survived by his daughter Cynthia (Brett) Reno of Montgomery, TX, daughter Brenda Green of Bloomington, IL, son Bradley (Shelia) Green of Fort Myers Beach, FL, three grandchildren (Linden Tully, Chad Reno, Lindsay Green) and two great grandchildren (Julia Tully, Graham Tully). He was preceded in death by his wife, Judy, and his grandson, Adam Green.

Dick was the oldest of five children. He grew up on a farm in Swayzee, IN, and played basketball at Swayzee High School. After high school graduation, he served in the Navy as an electrician in the Philippines. He attended Purdue University on the GI bill, graduating with a degree in agriculture. Dick was a jack of all trades. After moving to Green Valley, IL with Judy, his first job was at a chicken hatchery. Later he was a rural mail carrier and he raised chickens and turkeys. He also was a house builder, a feed mill owner (in Manito, IL), a restaurant owner (in Morton, IL), a real estate investor, and a landlord. He volunteered at the Peoria Southside Mission.

Judy and Dick moved to Groveland, IL in 1971 and to Morton, IL in 1998. After Dick and Judy retired, they divided their time between their home in Morton and their home in Fort Myers. They eventually lived full time in Fort Myers where they enjoyed playing golf and tennis, spending time with their many friends, and traveling.

Dick and Judy were members of the Green Valley Methodist Church, then the First Methodist Church in Peoria, and later the Cypress United Methodist Church in Fort Myers.

At Dick’s request, no services will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of your choice. The family would like to thank the staff of Amavida Living and Vitas Hospice for the excellent care they provided for Dick.
