Our Ames Noon Kiwanis Club will miss John. We enjoyed having him attend our ZOOM meetings. Our condolences to his family.
I served with John Green on the Wesley Center Board of Directors. I remember him as a kind man and I always wanted to hear his opinion. My thoughts are with John's family and friends.
So sorry to here about John he was such a great man ! Sending prayers to the Green family
So sorry for your loss. A gentleman dedicated to his job and helping others.
John's smiling face was always fun at work, and to see around the neighborhood. He will be missed.
Sending my love to your entire family all who will miss John. He is one of the best for sure! A true light in the world.
I love you John Green!!! I will hold you in my heart always !!
I’m so sorry I’m not able to be there to hug you all!!! Cheers to you John
John was diligent, intelligent, kind, always busy, light-hearted, technology savvy, and so much more, and he will be so missed. Best wishes to Shirley and family. I, and I'm sure many, will miss John greatly.
One memory: John and I had known each other for almost 20 years before I realized that his dad Herbert was the man who hired me in 1973 for my first non-farm job ever. John didn't seem English to me at all but his father was very much so.
My thoughts and prayers are going out to Shirley, your children, and your family. I know John when I was a Kiwanis member (also President) for the short time I lived in West Branch. John was amazing as he coordinated all the food, beverages, etc., for our fund raiser and other celebrations. John was such an avid Kiwanian ~~ he surely will be missed by all the his life touched. Indeed, John had courage and full life; “it is hard to say goodbye.”
A light went to Heaven when God called him home. Sooner than we hoped, but as always, John took God’s hand and followed God’s lead. Thankful for the gift of knowing this kind-hearted, generous and faith-filled man. I’ll miss you, my friend, until we meet again.
May the prayers of all who have known you bring comfort to your family and God's loving gift bring them peace.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Shirley, Amanda, and the grandkiddos. John (and Shirley) were the best neighbors a young, growing family could have. Having "grandparents" on our loop was priceless. I will never forget John's smile, a smile that made you feel like you were right where you were supposed to be and loved, so loved. His laugh was infectious! John was a great example of what fatherly love is meant to be and a role model of Christian love. John's love for young people and those in need never ceased; he always went above and beyond. I know John is up in heaven eating yummy treats; I've missed his baking ever since we moved away. Though John may not be physically on earth with us anymore, his love and kindness will live on though those blessed enough to have known him.
Jerry and I both always enjoyed working with John at Moore. He will be greatly missed by so many. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you all. Beverly Shearer
I was lucky enough to call John a boss when I joined Mother Moore in 1972. I’ve called him a friend for the last fifty. Shirley, I almost lost a finger one night in the Summer of 1974, ran a perforation blade half the length of my left index finger, splitting the bone to the tip before it released my hand. It was that night, I replicated your maternity trip to the hospital, that Rambler hit 100 a couple of times on the way to the Mercy ER. I think he was more worried about me gettin blood on the seat, but he got there in a flash! God bless his memory….
John was one of the most dedicated Kiwanians I’ve had the pleasure to know. He was a selfless volunteer who always brought out the best in others. I enjoyed working with him (and others) to open the Kiwanis Club of West Branch. And his love and pride for the OCK club was abundantly apparent when I got to visit it. I am sure John will be an active member as he transfers to the Kiwanis Club of the Pearly Gates.
I am still in shock. John was the most generous, loving, caring, helping person i have ever known. he was a dear friend whose passing leaves a giant hole in my heart. Farewell, John. Heaven is in for a treat.
I have so many great memories of John. His home was my 2nd home for so many years. His booming laugh was so contagious. His love for his family was fierce. Another good man lost to soon!
My heart goes out to the family. I’ve known them since I was in elementary school at Robert Lucas which has been about 40 years. John was an amazing man, father, husband, mentor, and many other things to many people. He was taken too soon and will be greatly missed. While we lost a GREAT man, heaven gained one. He’s no longer suffering and in pain, which gives me some peace and comfort.
Wow...I'm in shock...John was a one of a kind. A true joy to be around. A huge heart for providing service to others. I so looked forward to his newsletters, where I would always cut and paste some of his jokes, to brighten the days of Camp Courageous staff and the board. John was truly loved by more people than he could ever realize...he leaves us a huge void in our hearts...
We are so sorry to hear of John's passing. He was always a joy to see and talk to, he will be missed. Our thoughts are with the Green family.
I’m saddened to hear of John’s passing. He was such a nice, friendly and cheerful man. My sympathies to Shirley and all his family and friends. He will be missed and remembered fondly by many.
I was so sorry to hear about John's passing. He will be missed by his many friends. My condolences to Shirley and all of John's family. Barb Fisher-Krueger
