Vincent W Green “Vince”, 42 of Goodyear, AZ passed away on December 22, 2015 after a 2 ½ year battle with stomach cancer. He was at home and surrounded by his family when he took his last breath. He was born September 11, 1973 to Gary and Marion Green in West Islip, NY.
Vince graduated from Trevor G. Browne High School. He worked as a Sales Execution Coordinator for Hensley Beverage Co. which proudly distributes Anheuser-Busch products. He was extremely dedicated to his work and was celebrated by his company as a true “Bud Man”.
Vince loved sports, and especially Arizona teams. He had season tickets to ASU Sun Devil Football almost every year. He and his wife enjoyed visiting 17 of the major league ball parks, his favorite being Fenway.
Like many sports fans Vince was a collector of sports memorabilia, but he did it with his own special flair. When Vince did something he did it big! This love of sports often blended into his everyday life. Shopping became like a competitive sport and to soften the blow of his purchases, he would often say he “won” items (on Ebay).
Vince was well liked. He had a large group of loving and loyal friends who described him as the funniest guy they knew. Yet it was Vince’s family that was most important to him. He was a devoted husband and best friend to his wife. His first grandchild was born in 2015 and he adored her. He was a loving and caring father to all of his children. He was always involved in their activities, going to great lengths to support them in all aspects of their lives. His children fondly remember him being at their sports events and all of the camping trips up North and to the dunes.
Vince is survived by his wife Danielle, Daughters, Makayla Green and Ariel Mallon, Son, Austin Green, Brothers, Kevin Green, Harley Fischer, Courtney Fischer, Sister, Tiffany Dean, Mother, Marion Carmichael, Grandmother, Rosemary Green and granddaughter, Hayden Mallon. He was preceded in death by his Father Gary Green and Grandfather Gerald Green.
Vince’s life will be celebrated on January 16, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. at the Pointe Squaw Peak Resort. To donate to his celebration of life party, please visit www.gofundme.com/vincegreen
