After a short time of dating, they were engaged and, three weeks later, he married the love of his life, Donna Salter Green. He and Donna have shared life for 38 years. Eddie had a wonderful sense of humor and loved to make others laugh. He loved to be outdoors. He retired from BASF and was a member of Liberty Baptist Church. Eddie loved peppermint Lifesavers and Reese’s Cup eggs. Mostly, with his whole heart, he loved his children and grandchildren. Lovingly called “Pappy”, he cherished time spent with his grands and family. Eddie Green will be deeply missed by his family and many friends.
