Byron “Cotton” Lindsey Green loving husband, Daddy, Pawpaw, and Big Pawpaw was reunited with our Lord on April 22, 2023.

Byron was a strong, gentle, giving, and kind-hearted man. First and above all, he loved God, he had a sweet spirit that was evident to all that truly knew him. Byron always said that he had a past that he wasn’t proud of, but when he changed, he changed when he found Jesus. Every time his faith was tested, he said, trust the journey. He never met a stranger, and he was a teller of tales who loved to share a good laugh. Byron so loved spending time with and mentoring the grands and great grandchildren. He loved sharing time in nature and listening to the dogs run. He was preceded in death by his parents Leonard and Ruby Green, brothers Harbin and Olin Green, and his sister Rebecca Hunter.

He is survived by the love of his life, Cathy Rampley Green; his children Mr. and Mrs. Jason Green, Jamie Grider (Dana), Joshua Green, John Pope (Summer), and Ben Pope (Raven); grandchildren, Jared Green (Stephanie), Justin Green (Brooke), Jaxon Green, Haley Crowe (Bradley), Jeb Simerly, Jon Grider, Ricky Grider, Isabella Green, James Leonard “Lenny” Green, Jordyn Pope, Carter Pope, Declan Pope, Riley Pope, Cayman Nicholson , Addyson Nicholson, and Wyatt Nicholson; great-grandchildren: Sarah Green, Jasper Simerly, and Jaylee Simerly; sisters and brother, Rosa Matthews, Martha Timms, June Satterwhite, Bobby Green, Nina Samples-Stanley, and Elsie Healy(Joe).

His legacy lives on from generation to generation. Daniel 4:3
