Gary L. Green

Gary L. Green, loving husband and devoted father, passed away peacefully at home on May 20, 2015, surrounded by his family and friends. He will be remembered by those who knew him for his compassion, work ethic, strength, and humor.

Gary was born December 31, 1956 in Murray, Utah to Clayton and Sharon Green. He joined the Utah Carpenters’ and Cement Masons 184 in 1980, beginning what would become a 33-year career in union carpentry.

Gary married his high school sweetheart, Tracy in 1978. Together they moved to Washington State in 1988, settling in Bellevue in 1989. His family was always his top priority, and his greatest pride was raising his children, Cale, Andrew, and Mary Elizabeth. He greatly enjoyed coaching, officiating, and assisting in youth athletics, including PONY baseball, USA Track and Field, Bellevue Boys and Girls Club, and Cascade Striders Youth Running Club.

Gary was a tireless advocate for labor rights and social justice, always willing to speak up for those not spoken for. He represented L.A.D.S. Local 1144 as a national delegate at the United Brotherhood of Carpenters’ 40th General Convention, also serving as a trustee and as a member of negotiation and scholarship committees for his union. He would finish his career as an instructor for L.A.D.S., training and mentoring apprentice carpenters, retiring in August 2013.

Gary is survived by his wife, Tracy; children Cale, Andrew, and Mary Elizabeth.

A Celebration of his Life will be held on August 8, 2015, please contact members of the Green family for details.
