Mr. Kenneth Ray Green, 84, died Thursday, May 30, 2024, at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem.

He was born July 5, 1939 in Davie County to the late James and Nellie Tutterow Green. Mr. Green was a veteran of the U.S. Army, having served during the Korean Conflict. He had retired from Stroh’s Brewery where he had worked as a mechanic/welder. Mr. Green enjoyed working on antique John Deere tractors and hit and miss engines. He enjoyed playing music with friends; playing several instruments. Daily trips to the creek on his golf cart, with Lucy and Chico by his side was a favorite way to pass time. He was quick to temper, however, he was full of jokes, and was always there for you, as he had a tender heart.
