Mr. Green was a Christian man who had a relationship with our Lord and Savior. He had a big heart and was truly a genuine person. Antonio spent his working years in various retail positions from 1987-1990. In his last job position he worked for National City Bank as a courier. Antonio lived in Muskegon, MI from 1968-1973, then to Croswell, MI from 1973-1978 and finally came to Columbus, OH in 1978.
Antonio enjoyed bowling, baseball, football, swimming, playing pool, and reading. He loved to watch comedies and the National Geographic channel. Antonio always had an eagerness to learn anything new that he could and he was knowledgeable in a lot of different areas.
One of Antonio’s proudest achievements was becoming an uncle. He enjoyed having so many young cousins to spend time with, and they all gravitated towards him; he was a mentor to all.
