Ronald “Ron” Green of Oregon Slope, Weiser Idaho passed away March 9, 2022 at his home.
Ron was born in Scottsbluff Nebraska on July 17, 1936 to Pete and Lena Green. He was the ninth of ten children born. Around 1949 Ron moved to Weiser, Idaho with his parents and 2 siblings.
On July 22, 1955 Ron married Charlotte Ann Cooper. They moved to Portland, Oregon for a while where their 3 children were born and then moved back to the Oregon Slope where Ron got back in to farming. Around 1963, they bought an 80 acre farm out on the Weiser Flat. In 1983, Charlotte was diagnosed with cancer and lost that battle in November. They were married for 28 years.
Around 1985 Ron went to work for Simplot Soilbuilders driving truck and continued working there until he was 83 years old. He just loved working, farming, tractors, dirt, just being outside. Fishing, camping and bar-b-ques were some of his favorites too.
Ron met June Palmer his “friend” in 1992 and they hung out together from that time on camping, visiting, raising her grandchildren, just lots of fun things. His daughter in law admired dad for being such a hard worker, great carpenter and mechanic not to mention his sense of “humor.”
