Martin H. Green

MADISON — Martin Henry Green, age 55, of Madison, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, July 25, 2013, at Akron City Hospital due to injuries he sustained from a fall at work.

He was born July 29, 1957, in Painesville, to Linda (Sprague) and Joseph Green and married Deborah A. Pivonka on August 29, 1981. Martin was a 1975 graduate of Madison High School.

He had worked in the Maintenance and Irrigation Department at Lake County Nursery since 1982.

Martin was a long-time member of Immaculate Conception Church (ICC) where he was a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus. He was an active member of the ICC softball league where he had served as coach, umpire and commissioner for over 20 years. Marty also volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America, helping his son, Jacob to become an Eagle Scout. He was a lifelong resident of the Green Farm and enjoyed growing corn, pumpkins and other fall decorations. Marty was well known locally for his cheerful attitude and holiday spirit while selling Christmas trees for the last 27 years.

He enjoyed fishing, assembling puzzles and watching Cleveland sports, especially the Indians. Marty cherished the time spent with family and friends and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Marty was a devoted husband for the past 31 years and he was a loving and proud father of his four children. Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Marty felt his kind spirit and warm heart.

Marty was a giver both in life and in death as he was awarded The Gift of Life Donor Medal for his donation of organs, eyes and tissue to those in need. His gift will help over 40 individuals in many lifesaving ways.

He is survived by his wife, Deborah Green of Madison; children, Tiffany Green of Wooster, Jesse Green of Madison, Natalie (Dan) Sisler of Painesville and Jacob Green of Madison; parents, Linda and Joseph Green of Madison; in-laws, Katherine and James Pivonka of Madison; brother, Joseph Green of Madison; sisters, Judith Weber of Perry, Sharon (Rick) Daugherty of Madison and Patricia (Rob) Wyant of Perry; brothers-in law, James (Jill) Pivonka of Camphill, Pa., Thomas (Margaret) Pivonka of Madison and Timothy (Virginia) Pivonka of Carrollton, Texas; sisters-in-law, Laura (John) Caswell of Ashtabula, Catherine (David) Rowan of Madison and Sheri (Steve) Kerestman of Concord; 16 nieces; 7 nephews; 13 great-nieces and nephews; and many cousins and close friends.
