Gerald "Jerry" H. Green, age 87 of Lancaster, Ohio, passed away on Saturday, February 20, 2021 at the Lanfair Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care in Lancaster, Ohio, surrounded by his loving family.
Born November 18, 1933 in Cleveland, Ohio, he was the son of the late Noel B. and Mary Dolores "Doe" (Kemper) Green.
Jerry graduated from Cathedral Latin High School in Cleveland, Ohio. In February of 1955, immediately following graduation, he was enlisted into the U.S. Army where he was stationed in Germany. Following his active-duty discharge in February of 1957, he moved to Lancaster, Ohio with his parents. Jerry soon was employed at Valley View Golf Course in Lancaster where he became superintendent. In 1958, along with a close relative, he opened the Lancaster Physical Culture Studio and operated said business until 1961. During that time Jerry also worked as a crane operator with AT&T in Columbus, Ohio and retired from there in 1993. His retirement and future of golf was cut short due to a stroke in 1993. Jerry’s passions in life included golfing, milkshakes, coaching little league baseball and sharing his Ponce Inlet, Florida home with his children and grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by many.
