Obituary

Jackie “Jack” Dewitt Green, 82, of Crossett, passed away on Tuesday, August 30, 2022.  He was born in Dermott, Arkansas, on January 23, 1940, and was a member of North Crossett First Baptist Church.

For over fifty years, Jack worked for Georgia Pacific, eventually retiring in 2005 after a long lucrative career. 

In his spare time, he enjoyed watching nascar races, going coon hunting, and fishing for crappie, all of which he took very seriously sharing every detail with his coffee-drinking buddies at Country Vittles.

Jack was a headstrong and unwavering man who loved to aggravate. However, on the inside, his generosity knew no limits, often buying items just so he could give them away. 

Jack was tidy and didn’t require much for himself, but never hesitated to spoil his family.  He loved his wife dearly, was a wonderful daddy to his children, and a world-class poppa to his grands and great-grands.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Jessie Vernon and Bertie Lee Beard Lord; his first wife, Betty Jeannette Green; his second wife, Gloria Faye Green; one son, John Evans; and his sister, Joyce McCone.

He leaves behind six daughters, Kathy Barnett (Tim) of Hamburg; Denise Chapman (Travis) of Monticello; Nona Pruitt (Randy) of Sherwood, Teena Holland (Allen) of Fountain Hill, Melissa Wooten (Rodney) of Crossett, and Casey Wilson (Chris) also of Crossett; along with two sisters, Sharon Cantrell (Larry) of Dumas, and Karon Parrish of Rogers; nine grandchildren, Mark, Joel, Emily, Nicholus, Laura, Madison, Cole, Bryce, and Owen; eight great-grandchildren, Brantlee, Brylee, Benton, Beauman, Riddick, Lyra, Brett and Madelyn; and another great-granddaughter, Gloria Faye, to make her appearance in October.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, September 2nd at North Crossett First Baptist Church, 1035 Hwy 133 N, Crossett, AR 71635, with Bro. Robin Allen and Bro. Garrett Fox, officiating followed by interment at Crossroads Cemetery under the direction of Medders Funeral Home.  Pallbearers are Tim Barnett, Randy Pruitt, Travis Chapman, Chris Wilson, Creston Creel, Richie Walker, and Rodney Wooten.  Honorary pallbearers are his fishing and coffee-drinking buddies.

Visitation will be held at the church from 10:00-11:00 a.m., prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the North Crossett First Baptist Church Building Fund.
