As an Actor and Artist, the most remarkable role Tim played was that of a loving Son, Husband, Father, Brother, Grandfather, and Friend. He won overwhelming admiration for his performance of this multifaceted role through 8 decades in his longest running performance. Tim passed peacefully on April 7, 2020 in the comfort of his home surrounded by family.

Tim Richard Green Jr. was born in Dallas, TX on August 15, 1939 to Dr. Tim Green Sr. and Hilma Rogers Green. As a young child they lived on Tyler St. in Oak Cliff where he enjoyed practicing dramatic delivery by telling elaborate horror stories to his favorite audience, who happened to be his younger sister Sandra. During their days on Tyler St., his father brought home a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. As Tim and Sandra cared for and fattened up the turkey, they fell in love with it as a pet. They convinced their father to let them keep it. In a dreadful turn of events, a real-life horror story materialized as the turkey took ownership of the backyard attacking all, with a special interest in the maid.

Tim graduated Sunset High School in Dallas, class of Ď58. During his college years, he convinced his father to purchase a Corvette for him, which began his love of sports cars (the list is long but the one common theme was speed). He had a love of music and played at the Rubaiyat Coffee House on McKinney Ave. during open mic in the 60ís. He graduated from East Texas State with a Bachelor of Economics & Finance and a Bachelor of Arts. He went on to earn his Masterís in Fine Arts from Trinity University.

Tim met Mary Ellen Murray in college and they shared a 58 year journey together that has included kids, grandkids and travel through Mexico and Europe. He was never one to pass up a good road trip, regardless of militia, bad maps, RVís that didnít fit, or steering wheels on the wrong side of the car. In 53 years of marriage, the adventures have been too numerous to count.

Professionally, on stage, he was a part of the Dallas Theater Centerís closed company for as many years as we can remember. His performance of Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird was epic. He also participated in the Dallas Summer Musicals and Theater Three. In film he had roles in Whatís Eating Gilbert Grape, JFK, Ruby, On Valentineís Day, and Pancho Barnes. He had a regular appearance on the TV show Dallas for years.

He enjoyed listening to records as loud as possible. He had a collection of guitars, banjos, and even a player piano that he restored in the living room for a few years (we will never forget the smell of animal glue wafting through the house). He loved classic films, wine, and any new tech gadget he could get his hands on. Debate was his favorite form of conversation regardless of the topic or his level of knowledge regarding such topic.

He was a gambler at heart and loved any game of chance. He earned Life Master in bridge (wrote a book about bidding), played poker weekly, enjoyed a game of chess (won 4th place in a state tournament), and loved day trading the stock market. He was obsessed with golf and passed that on to all of us. His passions will be carried forward and survived by his wife Mary Ellen; his sons Tim & wife Laura and Michael; his sister Sandra (Candy) & husband Terry Anderson; his sister Amanda & husband Terry Owen; his brothers Jacob & wife Charity Green, Robert Green and David Green; his granddaughters Jordan & Madison Green; numerous nieces and nephews.
