Brother Vincent Green
“…I go to prepare a place for you; and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” ~ St. John 14:2–3
Brother Vincent Green was born in Lake Providence, LA, on September 23, 1962, to Thornton Green, Jr., and Ethel Sidney Green. At an early age, Vincent accepted Jesus the Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. He was a faithful member of Central Baptist #1 Missionary Baptist Church, under the pastorate of Pastor Dr. Raymond Gill, up to his transition.
Vincent attended the East Carroll Public School System, but his heart was set on entering the workforce and buying himself a car! Growing up on a farm, Vincent learned to work at an early age. He worked both on his father’s farm and at their service station. Vincent was a huge help to his father throughout his father’s life. He worked long, hard days without complaining.
Most of the time, Vincent had a smile on his face and was soft-spoken. He would help anyone who asked him. Vincent was not selfish or self-centered. He gave of himself to family, friends, and church members. During his illness, he kept a positive attitude, praising God, and giving thanks. It is said that the meek shall inherit the earth. Well, Vincent was meek and humble; and God has given him his inheritance—eternal life in his presence. Vincent shall rest from all his labor.
Vincent was preceded in death by his Mother, Ethel Sidney Green; his Father, Thornton Green, Jr.; his Brother, Daniel Green; Grandparents, Thornton Green, Sr., and Cassie Green; and Uncles, Eddie Green, Pastor Freddie Green, Deacon Samuel Bell Sr. (Irene), and Deacon E. C. Morris (Evelyn).
Those who remain to cherish his memories are his Sisters, Diane Pounds (Warren), Tori Thomas, Anita Jones Ballard (Will), and Angela Jones; his Brothers, Clearance Green, Willie Green, Deacon Louis Green, Thornton Green, III (Anmie), and Roosevelt Green; eleven (11) Nieces, ten (10) Nephews; and a host of cousins and friends.
