First and foremost, David was a family man and follower of Jesus. Family came before anything. He was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hours/days in the quiet of nature, whether it be in the woods hunting the big bucks or on the waves of Mille Lacs Lake and surrounding Minnesota lakes. David enjoyed music and was a wonderful guitar player, fast fingered piano player and had a beautiful singing voice. Family and friends would often request his guitar and singing around the campfire. David was a lay leader for many years at church. He was a handyman extraordinaire with projects aplenty.

Survivors include his wife, Wendy Green of Foley, MN; children, Jennifer (Jeremy) Tanner of Zimmerman, MN; Christine (Michael) Bosko of LaSalle, Manitoba, Canada; David (Katherine) Green Jr. of Big Lake, MN; and Kandace Green of St. Cloud, MN; sister and brothers, Diane (Harvey) Hohenstein of St. Peter, MN; Duane (Cathy) Green of Rogers, MN; Darrel (Robin) Green Jr. of Ham Lake, MN; and 11 grandchildren, Katrina, Matthew, Josephine, Timothy, Brooke, James, Ashley, Jacob, Kasey, Jasper and Joseph.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
