Jonathon Green


Jonathan Samuel Green, 42 of Calvin, WV went home to be with his Lord and Savior on May 31, 2019 in Ruby Memorial Hospital after a short illness.
He was born on October 22, 1976 to Harvey and Sharon McMillion Green in Richwood.  Loving son, brother, uncle, companion, and friend. He was an active member of Little Laurel Baptist Church. 
Jon always liked to be as independent as possible even from a young age, he loved soapbox derby’s and often raced in them, winning titles and most of all, hearts!
Jon Boy, Brat Brother, or Jonny Red were just a few of his many nicknames but most would agree that the name that fit him the best was Faithful Friend. Jon would inherit his compassionate heart from his Mom and his frugality and humor from his Dad.  These traits made him humorous yet compassionate and he was always ready to listen to any of his friends in their time of trouble and gave him the ability offer kind words of encouragement. 
He was a proud Lumberjack, graduating from Richwood High School in 1995.   He had an enormous love for his former classmates and would often request prayer for them throughout the years, always ready for a reunion.
He would go on to complete data processing classes through the Rehabilitation Center in Institute, West Virginia.  This gave him the computer skills to be gainfully employed by Copies & More, Summersville WV, for over 16 years, where he was a valued member of their team. His co-workers became a second family to him, and they all loved and appreciated him.
Throughout his short lifetime, he was a valuable member of Little Laurel Baptist Church. Often leading devotions along with compiling and printing the weekly bulletin.  He also had a love for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Shoebox Ministry, taking great pride in their church’s successful Shoebox Ministry.  (If anyone would like to do something to honor Jon’s memory perhaps packing a shoebox to donate to Little Laurel Baptist Church’s Shoebox Ministry would be a terrific way to show your love and honor his memory).  Jon had a hug and smile for most everyone and was always inviting people to attend church.   
Jon loved his brothers and sisters and was proud of their accomplishments and families.  He spoke glowingly of his nieces and nephews and when they began to have children of their own, he would show off their pictures to his friends and workmates.  
Jon loved his companion and caregiver, Grace, and appreciated the love and care he received while sharing their lives together.  One of the brightest parts of his life was “his” MacKenzie, who he spoke of lovingly. His greatest desire being to provide and care for them.  
Although Jon’s last days were filled with struggle, as usual his thoughts were on others, he had a message for all of his family, friends and world, asking his sister and care giver, Becky  “Tell all Mom’s kids, all the family, and all the world, I want everyone to go to Heaven, accept the Lord, don’t go to hell, please, please, tell everybody.”
Overcome- to prevail over opposition, a debility, temptations. Throughout all of Jon’s life, he was the very definition of the word “overcomer”.  “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 1 John 4:4. 
Those left behind to cherish his memory include his parents, Harvey and Sharon Green, Companion Grace Lake and her daughter McKenzie at home. Brothers- Jeff & Brenda Green of Orville, OH, Kevin & Kathy Green, Richwood WV, and Rick & Donna Green of Richwood, WV. Sisters- Becky & Kent Jenkins of Calvin, WV, and Marcy & Eric Moose of Richwood, WV.
Nieces and Nephews 
2 Timothy 4:7-8 “ I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”
