Terry Lee Green


Terry Lee Green was born on December 26, 1955 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Harvey and Betty Green. He was six weeks early, but even then, he had a quiet strength. He was taken from us at the age of 64, on January 8, 2020, and is survived by his wife, Rhea, who he was married to for 40 years; five of his six daughters, Kristy (Michael) King, Stacy (Troy) Collon, Molly (Newell) Godwin, Jenny (Holden) Norton, and Emily (Jacob) Brimhall; as well as 18 grandchildren, with the 19th to come in May 2020. Terry is also survived by his siblings, David (Kathy) Green, Renee Erwin, Valerie (Tom) Usery, Julie (Rusty) LeSueur, and Eldon (Penny) Lewis. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Amy Green, and both his parents, Harvey and Betty Green.

Terry moved around quite a bit when he was younger, but lived in Arizona for the last 50 years. He attended Mesa High School and then served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Argentina. After his mission, he met his eternal companion in the neighborhood and dated her for two years. Terry and Rhea made a happy home for their six daughters and stayed put.

Terry worked hard with his hands, installing cabinets and countertops for forty years, and was liked by all. He enjoyed camping with family, playing with his grandchildren, spending time with his Love, and watching television. He was an easygoing guy and a hard worker, who would give you the shirt off his back. He may have seemed quiet, but once you got to know him, he could talk your ear off.

We loved him more than words can say and are saddened by his passing, but know he has enjoyed a glorious reunion with the loved ones who have passed on before him, and that we will see him again one day.

A Memorial Celebration will be held on Friday, January 17, 2020. There will be visitation starting at 6:00pm, with the service beginning at 7:00pm. Both will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 454 North Crismon Road, Mesa, Arizona 85208.

    So sorry for your loss. I lived in the same ward when Terry was a teenager. I remember him as a very nice young man.

    Dear Rhea and family,

    I am so sorry for your loss, and I pray that you will feel an abundance of love, comfort and peace as you grieve. Even though I did not know Terry well, I love the entire Harvey and Betty Green family. They are wonderful people, and I know that they were delighted to greet Terry when he returned home. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
