Larry Douglas Green, Jr., 43

Larry Douglas Green, Jr., 43, died on Friday, February 28, 2015 at the Carolina Medical Center in Charlotte. He was preceded in death by both of his grandfathers: Charles Pruitt and Adger Green as well as his step-father, John Holland.

Larry was a Henderson County native and graduated from East Hendersonville High School in 1989. He worked for the Selee Corporation for a number of years, as well as worked in landscaping prior to his declining health. He was of the Baptist faith and enjoyed attending church. He loved being outdoors, and wearing his baseball cap on backwards.

His greatest joy in life was being a father to his three children. He enjoyed playing sports with Tanner, and enjoyed their fishing and hunting trips together. Although he wasn't successful in turning Madison into an "outdoorswoman", he taught Lacy to be a great "inner tuber." He had a wonderful sense of humor and taught his children the value of being respectful and honest.

Larry is survived by two daughters: Madison Green and Lacy Elizabeth Green and one son: Tanner Green. He is also survived by his mother, Pat Holland, as well as his father Larry D. Green, Sr. and his wife Judy of Spartanburg, SC, and his maternal grandmother Arliss Pruitt that he lovingly called "Mama". He had one uncle: Ronnie Green of Tuxedo and a special friend Cameron Green of Hendersonville.
