Thomas “Tom” Patrick Green

February 17, 1955 ~ May 10, 2020

Thomas “Tom” Patrick Green, 65, of Holly Springs, NC, passed away unexpectedly on May 10, 2020. Tom was born on February 17, 1955, the fifth of eight children to the late J.C. “Chuck” and Alma (Jerrett) Green. He lived most of his adult life in the Raleigh area.

Known for his hard exterior and soft heart, he was a practical joker and always had a great sense of humor. Tom loved to spend time with his family, especially his grandson, Dylan. He had a great passion for golf, the Carolina Hurricanes and the Dallas Cowboys. He worked several years with Leith Cars where he was the assistant parts manager.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers; Robert (Bob) and John Green. He is survived by his two sons; Chris (Connie) Green and Steven (Karen) Green; brothers Jim (Nancy) Green, Terry Green, and Rick (Kim) Green; sisters Jackie (Steve) Rogge and Pat Girard; step-mother Janine Green; grandson Dylan “Pickle” Green; sister-in-law Debbie Green, and many adoring nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. Anyone wishing to send cards or flowers may send them to Bryan-Lee Funeral Home at 1200 Benson Road, Garner, NC 27529.

  1. Terry Green

    I miss my brother very much. So many great memories I wouldn’t know where to start. Rest In Peace, Tom, and I’ll see you again.

  2. Connie Green

    We are going to miss you Tom. You were a huge part in my life and loved me as if I was your own. I will miss greeting you at the door and your famous saying “get off me”. I love you!

  3. Beverly OBrian

    Even though I never had the pleasure of meeting you Tom Green I have met your son Chris. After reading this I see where Chris got his good nature, sense of humor and overall sense of treating people kindly. No doubt you will be missed but you go on through all the lives you have touched. Rest In Peace and much comfort to your family in the coming days.

  4. Kevin Parker

    Tom was a dear friend for half of my life. Tough exterior but had a good heart. I’ll meet you on the golf course in heaven.
    God broke the mold with you. Condolences to the family .

  5. David Green

    Uncle Tom was a wonderful uncle and we already miss him so much. I still laugh at a memory of when he took me and his boys to a movie, and he fell asleep during the show. But his snoring was so loud (and he swore he never snored) woke himself up. That was funnier than the movie we had gone to see.

  6. David Green

    That’s a wonderfully written obituary. ❤️

  7. Cindy Green Barbee

    Favorite memory from maybe 10 years ago: it was my birthday, I opened a card from the mail and was shocked that it was from Uncle Tom. We hadn’t seen each other recently, it was completely out of the blue and I was so touched by the gesture. The next time we were together I asked him about it (since it was the only card he has mailed me in my entire life, including Christmas). His response “I was looking at that list (our family address & bday list) and finally saw the name of someone I know”! 😂

  8. James Bowling

    We are all trying to process this at work today. Tom has been with us for fifteen years and he was truly one of a kind. I grew to love Tom like a big brother and we will all miss him dearly. My heart goes out to the entire family.

  9. Brent Braswell

    My condolences to the family. Tom was a great friend, I’ll cherish his friendship. 🙏

  10. Kevin Parker

    I’ve known Tom for over 20 years. Played golf with him every weekend when he was available. I’m still in shock. He was a good man. He will be missed by all his golfing buddies. God broke the mold with Tom Green.

  11. Linda Lessley

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. Tom was always a good friend to my Husband Gene and myself. Perhaps he and Dan are playing a round of golf.

  12. Miriam John

    I worked with Tom for 15 years at Leith, and I enjoyed each day because of the joy he brought to the work place. He became more than a coworker, but a great friend too. I know i speak for many of our fellow coworkers in saying he will truly be missed. My prayers are for all his family and friends during this difficult time. God be with you and strengthen you.

  13. Jackie Green Rogge

    I’ve always loved his smile. 💔💔

  14. Chris Sharpe

    So sorry, I delivered batteries to Chris’s Dad at Volkswagen. I will be praying for you all

  15. Kevin Parker

    I’ve known Tom for over 20 years. Played golf with him every weekend when he was available. I’m still in shock. He was a good man. He will be missed by all his golfing buddies. God broke the mold with Tom Green.

  16. Cindy Green Barbee

    He always had such a calming and loving presence – but with a definite sparkle of “troublemaker” in his eye. He will be missed. Love to you all.

  17. Kevin Parker

    Sorry for your loss Chris. I’ll miss the weekly golf outings with Tom. He was truly a good man.

  18. Scott and Kelli Edwards

    Love Connie’s comment, ‘get off me’. That’s so Tom! Went to see him in the hospital after a surgery a few years ago and he said ‘What are you doing here?’ Another example of that tough exterior, but he appreciated the visit.

    Tom was a very dear friend to us for 32+ years. We are thankful for his presence in our lives and will miss him dearly. We were blessed to enjoy more time with him after his recent move to Holly Springs. There are endless happy moments in our hearts that we will cherish forever!

    He adored his sons and grandson and spoke of them often. Hoping it brings some comfort to you all knowing he spent the last couple days of his life with dear friends reminiscing, laughing and creating new memories, surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and those that love him so much! Our deepest sympathies go out to Chris and Steven, the family and his friends. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    Please reach out anytime. We are here for you!

  19. Hugh Wilson

    My condolences to the entire family. Like so many others, I am having a difficult time processing this. Tom was not only was a friend but a mentor to me as well. Without even trying he made me a better husband, father and man. I spent a year as a season ticket holder to the Canes with him and I’ll always have those memories. We worked together for a few years and played golf quite a bit. Recently we had just started talking again and I was so happy about that. I Love You Tom! See you on the golf course in heaven my friend.

  20. Ramon Salas

    I worked with Tom for almost Ten years, was kind of waiting for him to walk through that door this past week. My favorite Tom moments are not suitable for most ears😂 Love you bro and I’ll see you when I get there!!!

  21. Marie Dodds

    I got to know Tom at the Durham VW store. He was a great coworker that told it like it was. He was straight forward but would help you without being asked. I loved working with him and joking around. He was kind and loved talking hockey with my Mom. He even helped us get discount tickets for a Canes Canadians game. His sense of humor and friendship will be truly missed. See you in the next round man.
