Bruce Green Obituary

Bruce Green, husband, daddy and Pa passed away Monday, January 9, 2024, at Magnolia Regional Health Center in Corinth, MS following a lengthy illness.  
He was born on June 20, 1948, in Jumpertown, MS, one of eight children to the late Charlie Edd Green and Olive Storey Green.
He is preceded in death by his son, Wesley Bruce Green, his parents, as well as his brothers, Charlie Dale Green, John Green, Gaylon Green, Larry Green, and Glen Green, and his sister, Kay Frances Smith.
He is survived by his wife, Lisa; his children, Lori Green Nash (Ray), Matthew Green (Ashley) and Callie Green; his sister, Connie Cole (John), sisters-in-law, Joyce Green and Jelena Austin, and a host of nieces and nephews. Bruce’s legacy lives on through his grandchildren who affectionately called him Pa: Carson Wesley Nash, Maddie Green, Bo Green and Liam Brown. 
After attending Jumpertown High School, Bruce and his brother Glen moved “up north” and began working at Danly Steel Corporation. After working several years, he moved to Orlando, Florida, and began his fencing career with his brother, Larry.  Upon returning to Mississippi, Bruce worked in various business ventures before opening his own fence business, Wesley Fence Company, in 1979. Bruce was so proud when his son, Wesley, joined the company as a partner in 1991. A company which existed for 40 years until Bruce’s retirement in 2019. 
Bruce was an avid hunter.  He and his friend Bob Ricks shared a hunting camp in southern Tippah County for many years.  He and Bob went on several hunting trips in Wisconsin and fishing trips in the MS Gulf. 
Bruce was a lifetime member of the Jumpertown Methodist Church. Over the years, Bruce served in the church as a trustee.  He had a talent for telling stories and could bring a smile to a person’s face with his infectious laugh.
