Marvin "Howard" Green, Jr. Obituary

Marvin ‘Howard’ Green, Jr. of Peru, Indiana, a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, faithfully ended his watch on Monday, February 12, 2024, at the age of 76. 

Born in Athens, Alabama in 1947 to Marvin and Lula Green, Howard graduated from Maconaquah High School in 1966. While in school, he met and fell in love with his beautiful wife, Ronnie, commencing their 57-year journey together. Howard went on to become a law enforcement officer, joining the Peru Police Department in 1970, faithfully serving the City of Peru for more than 30 years, before retiring in 2000.

Howard dearly loved his family and friends and was steadfast in his faith. Though not an avid reader, he never tired of reading the Bible. He could be found on the softball field coaching his daughters’ teams or playing golf with his son, Pete.  A true sports enthusiast, he especially took pride in attending his children’s and grandchildren’s activities, and readily shared his passion for Indiana basketball and the Green Bay Packers. He loved dancing, and his skill on the dance floor was admired by all, especially when dancing with his amazing life partner Ronnie.  

Howard was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by the love of his life and wife of 56 years, Ronnie Longenecker Green; daughter Dara and her husband Todd Kinney of Carmel, Indiana; daughter Michelle and her husband Steve Nash, of Indianapolis, Indiana; daughter Diane and her husband Silouan Hogsett, of Burlington, Indiana; son Peter and his wife Sage Green, of Edgewood, Washington; grandchildren Olivia and Ava Kinney; Brittany Sims, Baylee and Gracyn Grider, and Gabrielle Hoeft and her husband Josh; and Isaac, Mary, Irene, Jude, Maximus, Georgia, Gabriel, Mercy, and Julius Hogsett; and brothers Bart and Brett Sanders. 

We will all miss his charming smile, green eyes, and mischievous humor, but we will continue to carry with us the strong and unwavering faith that he instilled in all of his children and the importance of having a relationship with our Lord.
