Edward L. Green, 71

Edward L. Green, 71, of Jackson, died peacefully on Saturday, March 8, 2014, at home.

He was born on April 16, 1942, in Appleton to George and Margaret (Murphy) Green. He graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1960. He married his high school sweetheart Carol “Koko” J. Krablean on Sept. 7, 1963.

He worked for many years in the furniture delivery business, finally retiring from American TV as delivery manager in 2007. He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying camping, cruising in his beloved boat “Somertyme,” and most of all, any kind of fishing. More recently, as his health failed, he found pleasure in spending quiet time with his family at the Triangle Campground in Fremont.

He is survived by his wife Koko; daughters, Dena (Jim Dabrowski) Green of Janesville and Greta (Tom) Bowlin of West Allis; three grandchildren: Libby, Zachary and Traigh; as well as his brothers Bob, Jim, Pete, Bill and their families.
